THANKSGIVING

Remember, Thanksgiving dinner begins at approximately 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 21. It follows the 10 a.m. worship service.

RELEASE CLASS

The nine students in the Pedee release class Oct. 29 played games at the Womer Cemetery.

Susan Mulkey provided hints for a scavenger hunt for objects along the road through the cemetery. The students also had a "tissue race" and learned a little about the cemetery.

Alva and Emma Womer started the cemetery in 1903 when they buried their 10-year-old daughter, Hazel, in their field across the road from the Edwards Family Cemetery.

Womer Cemetery later opened as a community cemetery.

The release class students went to the Pedee church where Geri McKinney had chocolate cupcakes and apple juice waiting.

Susan Mulkey had a sack of treats for each student. Misty Stohl led a Bible lesson on "fear."

FAMILY NIGHT

Family night Oct. 29 included a potluck dinner at the Pedee Women's Clubhouse. Everyone enjoyed visiting and often enjoyed playing board games.

Family night is held on the last Friday of the month.

COOKIES

Women of the Pedee church baked Halloween cookies that were taken Oct. 31 to the Kings Valley Store to be shared as a treat for customers.

WORSHIP SERVICE

Aaron Burbank and Dan Hayes helped the Rev. Lonnie Burbank with the Oct. 31 worship service at the Pedee Evangelical Church.

Carla Burbank reported that her son, Dan Burbank, who had surgery near his heart some time ago, is recovering very well.

Mike McBeth said his mother, Freda McBeth, was moving home from Jefferson Manor that afternoon.

The pastor's message was "The Look of Love" based on Acts 6:8-15.
