Pedee students are doing a variety of things this summer. Mick and Debbie Cochrane’s daughter Paige spent 10 days with high school friend Jenna Friesen at her home in Santa Barbara. Paige will be a sophomore at Willamette University this fall. Rich and Tess Simons’ sons, Josh and Brandon, are both working this summer to earn money for their next year at Western Oregon University. Josh will be a junior and is working for his dad, and Brandon will be a sophomore and is making pizza in Independence for funds to continue. Cliff and Anne Bault’s son, Levi, is taking the summer off to explore his options for the next year since he just graduated from Kings Valley Charter School.

Dawntae Bault (who requires a whole separate paragraph) just finished the Polk County 4-H pre-fair and received a red ribbon in showmanship with his pony, Trigger. He and Trigger were hula dancers in the Dallas Summerfest parade on Saturday, Dawntae in a Hawaiian shirt and Trigger in a grass skirt — what a sight. He will be showing Trigger and his goats at the county fair. He also went to Big Lake Christian Camp for a week. Anne’s summer has been spent chauffeuring Dawntae, who will be a freshman at Kings Valley Charter School.

Shawn and Trina Brotherton spent three nights tent camping at Little Cultus Lake in the Cascades with their kids, 9-year-old Kalina and 6-year-old Kindan, and their three dogs the weekend of July 16th. They caught the attention of kayakers when they all, including the dogs, canoed across the lake together one day.

Ted and Ethelene Osgood joined the Polk About Sams RV Club this year and went to Hoquiam, Wash., from July 7 through 15, with old neighbors Alan and Sue Garton. They had a good time and hope to go often. The club camps, then visits local sights during the week.

Dave and Suzanne hosted a church picnic on Sunday, July 24. There were heaps of yummy food, perfect weather, and a lot of happy children playing games. Plus they had a fiddle player joining them for a little bluegrass. The church is blessed with several talented musicians.

The Pedee Women’s Club has been planning its Sept. 9-10 quilt show. There should be 40-50 quilts made by local quilters, plus several made by the club for children at risk. They completed this year’s raffle quilt to make money for the soldiers’ fund and will have a booth at the county fair to sell tickets on it. Stop by and buy your tickets — $1 or six for $5.
