Eric Schwanke and Rebekah Kamerman were married at Pedee Church on Sept. 23, a beautiful ceremony on a beautiful fall day. Eric met Rebekah at Arrowhead Bible College in Montana and then worked with her on a mission trip to Mozambique. Rebekah’s parents, Russ and Teresa Kamerman, came from Montana for the event, as well as many other relatives and friends. Eric’s sister Karen and husband, came from Texas, and of course, his father Howard Schwanke, was in attendance. Eric and Rebekah had help from several Pedee friends, including April Makalea and Pam Burbank, who prepared much of the food, and Abigail, Aliyah, and Arwynne Russell, who were the cutest flower girls ever.
The Pedee 4-H Club’s first official meeting was last Tuesday, where they chose “Tryoneers” as their name. It’s a combination of trying and pioneers. Leader Stephanie Weston helped the kids sign up for several projects, including raising various livestock, cooking, sewing, photography and art. As an introduction to the cooking project, I showed them how to measure liquid and dry ingredients and how to crack eggs — great fun as each got to try it. Heather Traglia led in baking cookies. It was decided to meet on the second and fourth Tuesday evenings at 6:30. Fourteen kids joined at that time, but more are welcome. Next meeting will be Oct. 10, at 6:30 p.m.
Judy Guida went to Houston recently to be there for her grandkids’ first day of school. They had started school two weeks late because of Hurricane Harvey. Son John’s six of seven kids are in school now. She and Joe then traveled to Puerto Peńasco, Mexico, for a week of relaxing, then had a fun time visiting family in Phoenix.
