There is still time to sign up for Pedee Church's progressive dinner scheduled Saturday. Attendees will eat a course at each of four different homes, then finish with a Christmas concert with Ron Diller and his acoustic guitar music at the church.
If you don't wish to eat dinner, you are still welcome to the concert that evening at 7 p.m. A dessert will precede the music. Ron's Christmas music is outstanding and is a beautiful way to celebrate Christmas.
Contact Heidi Russell at 503-838-2129 for details or to sign up to attend.
Sandy Fournier traveled to Livermore, Calif., to have Thanksgiving with her son, Daniel Heinemann, and his daughter Christina, son Billy and Tina Faas and their children Joshua and Jackie, and son Adam and Brigette Faas and their children Jessica and Jada. While there, she got to meet Daniel's fiancee, Shannon.
Then, a few days after she got home, she had cataract surgery in her left eye, which went well, but will wait to have surgery in her right eye until her desire to have good sight outweighs the thought of surgery again.
Gail Goetzinger celebrated her birthday with a luncheon at the Best Western Mill Creek Restaurant in Salem on Dec. 1. It was organized by her sisters, Marian Fittje of Salem and Carolyn Hartz of Baker City, and included friends old and new.
Women attending from Pedee (now and formerly) were her cousins, Greta Dyer Smith, Pam Burbank, Anne Parker, Roth VanDamm and Alma Clark; and friends, Grace Hayes, Linda Gardoski, Carolyn Hall, LaVerne Bennett and myself.
She had to have her party early, as her actual birthday is Dec. 21, and who knows if we'll all still be here then? We definitely wished her many more birthdays.
