Andrew and Stephanie Weston celebrated Stephanie’s Jan. 1 birthday by going to the Hoof N’ Holler bull and bronc riding event and New Year’s Eve party at the Linn County Expo Center in Albany with Stephanie’s parents, Tony and Debbie Rodriguez. It was an exciting way to bring in the New Year for them.

Dave and Suzanne Burbank spent the New Year’s Eve weekend helping son Derek and his wife Ashley with the plumbing and electrical work on the new home they are building outside of Redmond. The house is framed in and the roof is on so Derek and Ashley are set to have it finished by spring. Judy Guida recently bought a home at Eagle Crest and so the Burbanks were able to spend the nights there.

Chip and Linda’s son Matthew and his wife Katelyn had the first baby of the year at Salem Hospital on Jan. 1, earning them a gift basket from Salem Health and a cash gift from the Oregon College Savings Plan to go into an account which will go toward his college expenses. Benjamin Matthew, or Benji as he will be called, was born at 2:09 a.m. on the first, and Chip and Linda are thrilled to have him here. 

Activities are gearing back up in Pedee after the holidays. The Pedee Women’s Club will be meeting regularly each Wednesday again and Bible studies are up and going. The Pedee Church men are planning to cut wood for those who need it on the third Saturday of each month now. They meet at 8 a.m. at the church and welcome help. 

The Pedee Tryoneers 4-H Club is back to meeting on the second and fourth Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. at the church and it’s never too late to join. The club started planning for the county fair this week, signing kids up for specific projects.
