Christopher Beachey 11, First Turkey Hunt

Dover, Del. I did get one of my favorite hunting stories from one of our young Amish neighbors last week. It seems that Chris Beachey of Hartly took his 11-year-old nephew Christopher Beachey out on his first turkey hunt. It was a good morning obviously as the birds responded well to the call. A short time after sunrise Christopher was retrieving his 15-pound jake that sported a 5 ½- inch beard. Congratulations.

The nursing program at Eastern Mennonite University and the Harrisonburg Community Health Center (HCHC) have been awarded a $115,000 grant to train lay persons to be “front line workers” on the HCHC health services team. The funds from a private foundation were provided by Dr. Arthur (Tim) Garon, provost at the University of Virginia. “The primary aim of this project is to assist local individuals and families who need some extra attention to navigate the health care system, and particularly ” Clark said. “We believe that EMU was approached to start this program because it fits with the university’s mission and service values.

Tai Peachey Senor Galesburg High School IL.

With Friday’s loss, Peachey, Sarah Nelson and Nichole Johnson saw their playing days at Galesburg come to an end. But despite being unable to capture that elusive regional title, Peachey said she was just happy to enjoy so much success in her final year at Galesburg.
“I love this team,” Peachey said. “All the girls, the young ones and the older ones have been awesome. Between school, basketball and soccer I couldn’t have asked for a better senior year. It would have been nice to finally beat Dunlap, but it’s been an awesome season.” Click here for article By By TODD RUDOLF The Register-Mail Posted May 20, 2011 @ 11:47 PM Last update May 21, 2011 @ 09:42 AM

Dave Beachy Sugarcreek OH

Thanks to Lavon Daughtery and Dave Beachy, Sugarcreek can boast its own horse-drawn trolley.
The saga of the trolley goes back several years, when Daugherty and Beachy made a trip to Mount Hope to look at carriages that were going to be soldthe the next day at the Mt. Hope Auction.
“I liked this one because it was low and loaded from the right side,” said Daugherty, owner of Collectors Decanters and Steins, a store in Sugarcreek. “I couldn’t attend the sale so I told Dave if it sold for under $2,000 I would purchase it.” Daugherty said his interest in the trolley was to promote tourism in Sugarcreek. Luck was on his side.
When Beachy, owner of Beachy’s Country Chalet restaurant in Sugarcreek, got to the sale, the trolley was being taken out of the sale ring. When he learned it had not sold, Beachy offered the owner $1,750 the trolley, and the offer was accepted.
“We brought the trolley to Sugarcreek, painted it, put carpet on the floor and added advertisers signs,” Daugherty said. Two two red Belgian horses are lesed from Leroy Stutzman to pull the trolley. Stutzman, Paul Miller and Abe Troyer are the drivers. Click here for the article By Barb Limbacher staff writer. Posted May 13, 2011 @ 09:30 AM

Author Leroy Beachy, Book "Unser Leit" The Story of the Amish

Here it is!
After twenty plus years of extensive research, traveling, and writing; the long
awaited story of the Amish is ready for your customers. Unser Leit is unique in a number of ways. Presenting the past in gifted story telling fashion makes it appealing, not only to the dedicated historian, but also to the casual reader
who wonders about the Amish origin and their growth. Delightfully detailed illustrations are lavishly spread throughout and the reader friendly format is well thought through. In 35 years of operating the Gospel Bookstore, I have never seen a book on the subject as concise and complete as Unser Leit. This two-volume set should be on everyone’s bookshelf, especially those of Amish, Mennonite, and Brethren heritage. We all will read, reread, and study this work for the remainder of our days. This book has been needed for hundreds of years. Thank you, Leroy, for your lifetime of work. Eli J. Hochstetler, Mennonite, bookstore owner. Click here for details and to order.

Silver Streaks break in new soccer field with 2-0 win
Galesburg Register-Mail
It's just great,” said Streaks senior Tai Peachey, who scored the game's second goal and had an assist on the first. “We're really blessed to have it.” A steady drizzle fell during the dedication ceremony but fizzled out in time for the inaugural kickoff. Sun splashed onto the field for much of the game before the lights began to take effect.
“It’s not really soccer without rain, at least this season,” Peachey said. “They turned on the lights and the sun came out. It was pretty bizzare, but it turned out to be a great night.” Click for the rest of the story by Aaron Frey The Register-Mail posted may 05, 2011 @ 11:46 PM

Laura Beachy Somerset County PA

Every year, 35 Syracuse University students are named Remembrance Scholars and are awarded $5,000 scholarships for their academic achievement, citizenship and service to the community
When LAURA BEACHY visited Syracuse University as a senior in high school, she knew she wanted to be a part of the Remembrance Scholars. "My dad and I both knew that it was something I was looking to apply to," said Beachy, who visited during SU's Remembrance Week in 2006. Beachy and 34 other students entering their senior year of college were announced as Remembrance Scholars on Monday. SU officials established the scholars to honor the 35 students who were killed during the Dec. 21, 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 bombing in Lockerbie, Scotland. Beachy, a television, radio and film and anthropology major, said she has seen the firsthand effects of terrorism. "It's just something I have lived with and been very close to," said Beachy, who is from Somerset County, Pa., where Flight 93 went down on 9/11. After seeing the families and friends that were affected by the tragedy, she said she felt as if she could relate to the purpose of the Remembrance Scholars and felt it was her obligation to apply.
