The Pedee Bible Study group that began meeting in each other's homes in the early 1970s will have a gathering in the Pedee Church basement on Oct. 25 to celebrate the life of Violet Wendler, who died this summer at the age of 92.

Everyone is welcome to attend. They will begin meeting at 11 a.m., with a potluck salad luncheon at noon. Bring photographs and stories to share of "the good old days," and especially of "Little Vi" as she was affectionately called.

Junior Lyday had a lengthy stay at Salem Hospital, but is now at the Independence Rehabilitation Center until he gets stronger. He loves visitors and cards, so email me at for his address if you'd like to visit or send a card. His grandson Shandley Hazelton and friend Shelly Tarvin have been staying with him after his wife, Pat, died.


Pedee Women's Club members were delighted to receive a package of 15 cashmere scarves from one of the recipients of the boxes of goodies they send to men and women stationed overseas.

Tom Hall of Monmouth, who works for a contractor in Afghanistan, was thrilled to get a package, so he sent these gorgeous scarves. He is looking forward to being back in the U.S. in December.


Pedee Church has been gathering extra Bibles for the Bible Foundation to be distributed around the world. If you've got one at home that you don't need, drop it off at the church in the near future and they will send it on.

If no one is there, you could probably leave it at the door and someone will pick it up shortly. If anyone steals it, they needed it.
