9/15 Pedee News: Nola Womer

Storyteller Russ Schallock will present a theatrical program of mountain men and life on the frontier during Pedee Memorial Evangelical Church's Sunday service Sept. 19 at 10 a.m.

All ages enjoy his exciting and colorful presentations, so join us then for an interesting time. We love to have visitors at any time, but this is an especially good time to come.

After the presentation by Schallock, there will be a potluck dinner.


The Pedee Church garage sale was a big success. The next week we took some of what was left over to another garage sale in Salem and made even more. The church has a good start toward raising money to install a play area for the children.


This fall Pedee Church will start a "Kids for Christ" program at Kings Valley Charter School beginning Oct. 4. The kids will meet for one hour on Mondays from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m. in the gym and all kids from potty trained and up are welcome to come for a fun and exciting time as they learn about Jesus.

Points will be awarded for participation, verse recitation, etc. Parents can drop off their kids or stick around, as coffee and tea will be offered in an area for adults.


Former Pedee resident Laura Dyer had an afternoon visit from her cousin, Pat Lyday of Kings Valley, her sister-in-law, Sue Burbank of Dallas, and niece-in-law, Pam Burbank of Dallas. The foursome met for lunch at Murphy's Grill, then went to Laura's apartment at Dallas Retirement Village where they enjoyed coffee, looking at photos, visiting and catching up on family news.


Pam Burbank recently spent a Sunday with her friend Kelly Hokit from Scottsdale, Ariz. The two attended church together at Dayton Evangelical Church, where they both used to attend. Pam and Kelly were asked to share about their families during the worship service. They met several friends for a Chinese lunch afterward.


Arlene Kovash joined friends Jim Wernz of Philomath and his daughter, Maralee Wernz-Whitcomb of Madras, on a hike and camping trip to Echo Lake in the Eagle Cap Wilderness in the Wallowa Mountains during Labor Day weekend.

They went with experienced horse-packing campers Mark and Joni Simmons of Salem, who provided pack horses for the gear and also provided the meals. They hiked in one day, camped for two, then hiked back out of this incredibly beautiful area in Northeastern Oregon.

Would Arlene go again? If it were warmer!


Dave and Suzanne Burbank spent their Labor Day weekend in Sisters, where they explored little-used roads around Lake Billy Chinook and the Cascade Lakes Highway. They didn't camp, however.
