Trapper Creek Community Enrichment Calendar
Every year, on the 2nd weekend in March, the community of Trapper Creek holds their Annual Cabin Fever Reliever Day. The folks on the Community Services Board and community volunteers plan and pull off a day of fun for every age! We invite everyone to join us in festivities that last the entire day! Wonderful raffle prizes are gathered up from generous contributors before that day and raffle tickets go on sale at various Trapper Creek Sites. For ticket information and a prize list you can contact The Trading Post or The Other Place-DMV. Winners of the raffle are announced the day of the Fever Reliever. The festivities begin with a huge and delicious pancake breakfast. The parade begins and signifies the beginning of the festivities at the Trapper Creek Community Center at mile 115 on the Parks Highway. We have many games, contests for all ages, a ski race on the community trail, delicious food is served hot off the grill and we'll even have a few craft booths! Call the Trading Post if you want more details on times and events for the day. T-shirts will be sold in the Community Building boasting a design created by a local artist! The day will finish up at the Trading Post with a delicious spaghetti dinner. The proceeds will go to the Trapper Creek Community Services for the Community building, Trapper Creek Cemetery and grounds improvements.

Annual Pie Social
The PTA Dessert Social is held every fall to fund PTA programs within Trapper Creek Elementary School. Local residents bring a homemade dessert of their choice to be auctioned off. There is a separate auction for children and one for adults. Some desserts have been known to be auctioned for as much as $80 or more. The kidís auction only goes as high as $5. Our local rancher, Dusty Robson, has volunteered his auctioneering skills for years in aiding us in this wonderful community gathering. Time of next fallís event will be posted as soon as it is announced.
