I told you the wrong time for the Pedee Women's Club holiday fair on Saturday. It actually starts at 9 a.m. at the clubhouse in Pedee on Kings Valley Highway (Highway 223).
The women signed up to make pies, cookies and soup are Connie Ames, Dorothy McBeth, Ethelene Osgood, Juandeane Skidmore, Norine Weiland, Renee Dukes, LaVerne Bennett, Gloria Lighthart and Marguerite Nice.
You know they make good pies if you went to the summer festival at Dancing Oaks Nursery.
Steve and Audrey Cameron, Stephanie, Ana and little Bobby drove to Milwaukie on Saturday afternoon to son James Cameron's annual Halloween party. Everyone was in costume, and enjoyed a number of Halloween treats and games.
Steve and Audrey's granddaughter, Caitlin, and her husband, Zach Kelley, and their great grandson, Nicholas, came from Tigard. Nicholas came dressed as a "football" since his daddy has just finished the season as the freshman football coach for Liberty High School in Hillsboro.
Jenny Cameron hosted the party in a "Cruela DeVille" costume and little Eliana was a doggy. It was worth the drive to Milwaukie.
The Camerons have enjoyed a number of visits from sons Bob and Chris and their grandkids as they pass through Pedee on their way to OSU Beaver games in Corvallis. Chris told of his climb of Mount Everest at his dad's father/son breakfast at First Christian Church in Dallas. The family gathered at the Spaghetti Factory at John's Landing in Portland to celebrate three family birthdays in October: Chris on Oct. 9, Wosa on Oct. 10 and James on Oct. 11.
The annual Pedee Creek Road cider-making party was held on a very rainy Sunday afternoon on Oct. 29. In spite of 2 inches of rain, several individuals picked apples, then 22 hardy souls came to our house to squeeze them, then eat a potluck dinner afterward. We made 55 gallons of cider to split among eight families.
