Well, I am here to tell your that five determined bicyclists took part in the second annual "Outspoken for West Vir- ginia 4-H" last month to earn donations for WVU Jackson's Mill State 4-H Camp. And this was the second year for several of these energetic young folks. These young adults earned each donated dollar as they rode some 250 county road miles, traveling through 11 mountainous counties, beginning at the WVU Extension Office in KearneysviHe on Thursday, June 16, and reaching their destination at the Mill near Weston on Sunday, June 19. The ride gave people an opportunity to make tax-deductible donations to benefit the 4-H facility or activity of their choice. In 2004, the fundraiser received $20,000 making it a success. To date the 2005 total is more than $12,000. Jefferson County 4-H alumnus James Grantham was one of the bikers making the journey. This was his second year of participation. During the entire trip riders were ac- companied by a medical crew, a bike tech- nician, a snack and drink provider and a crew van. On the Wednesday evening before the ride, well-wishers celebrated the commit- ment of the riders with a kick-off dinner at the Shenandoah Valley Sportsmen at But- ler Farms near Inwood. On Sunday, the last day, the cyclists completed their ride at the Mill where they kicked off this year's Older 4-H Member's Conference. And the cyclists carried a positive im- age of our state emblazoned on the fronts of their team shirts. A Birthday Picnic Shepherdstown Music and Dance in- vites you to celebrate 25 years of music and dance at a free town lawn party and picnic on Saturday, July 30, from 6 to 7:30 p. m. on the lawn of McMurran Hall on East Ger- man Street. The French music of Ensemble Tympanon with Nick Blanton, Paul Oorts and friends will invite you to dance. Bring a picnic to enjoy. Plow Day Horse and mule-plowing demos, antique tractors and other equipment exhibits, hay rides, music performed by the Lazy River Band, and homebaked foods, country ham sandwiches and hot dogs will all be part of the annual Knighten Plow Day on Satur- day, August 6 at 8 a.m. Come out to the in- tersection of WV 230 and Gardner's Lane and witness farming methods from the past, compliments of the Knighten family and friends. This is an opportunity for the younger generation to see how their grandparents farmed and for the grandparents among us to enjoy lots of "I remember whens " Singin' in the Rain It will be outdoor movie time again on Fri- day when the Friends of the Shepherdstown Library presents the free film "Singin' in the Rain". This 1952 film classic is for gen- eral audiences. It will be shown behind the public library on King Street at dusk. Pop- corn will be provided, but you must bring a chair. Hometown Cookbook Mary Catherine Vickers, Gretchen Wei- gel, Shirley Derr, Betty Lou Bryant. Do these names sound familiar? Well, these talented, local food presenters and many others have their family favorite recipes displayed alongside those of noted chefs from such established eateries as the Ba- varian Inn, the Yellow Brick Bank, and the Clarion Hotel, as well as food vendors from the Shepherdstown Farmer's Mar- ket in "Hometown Recipes from Historic Shepherdstown", a collection of food "how to's" in a variety of categories. The Wom- en of St. Peter's Church are the editors and publishers of this fine book, which is on sale for $22 per copy at Four Seasons Books, J. Cooper Gallery, Jefferson Security Bank, and Bob's Carry-Out. Proceeds will benefit church projects. Grant Support A special James Rumsey Patent Dis- play will be on exhibit as the result of a $1,243 grant from the West Virginia Hu- manities Council to the Rumseian Society of Shepherdstown. The exhibit of the pat- ents acquired in England from 1788-1792, will be displayed beginning December 3 in the Rumsey boathouse, which is located to the rear of the garden of the Entler Hotel on East German Street. James Rumsey ac- cepted the challenges of the Potomac Riv- er by guiding his newly-constructed steam- boat along its course near Shepherdstown on December 3,177. In addition to the council funds, the Town Council donated $817 for the project with the society providing the balance. Film Society Showing Interested in a film classic?

The church is located on the corner of New and Church streets in town. Father's Garden Next week, we will continue our informa- tion on "krauting~'. I trust that your gardens are produc- ing as well as mine has since the delight- ful rain of a week or so ago. I have lots of squash, the tomatoes are turning red, yel- low, and pink. The eggplant is ready to pick. Herbs are ready for jellies and drying. And my long-season beets are happily growing larger and larger. A Glimpse Into History The following material about the Beding- er family was prepared by Helen B. Pend- leton and appeared in the December 1943 issue of the Magazine of Jefferson County Historical Society. Mrs. Danske Bedinger Dandridge, Shepherdstown resident and noted author has written of Major Henry Bedinger, George Bedinger, and Daniel Be- dinger, three of the sons of German-Swiss immigrant Heinrich Buedinger (Henry Be- dinger who is said to have arrived in Meck- lenburg (Shepherdstown) in 1762). She published much about them and many of their letters and journals appeared in part in two of her books. "The letters and journals are all emi- nently readable and show force of charac- ter and a good English education -- the lat- ter remarkable in young men who must have had meager advantages in a frontier village where they spent their early youth. Sturdy qualities of mind, capacity for liter- ary expression, a love of letters and poetic ability have appeared in many of their de- scendants, even to the fourth generation. Since Mrs. Dandridge has written so ful- ly about the family this present paper will be concerned with its background and ear- ly ancestry and data which has not already been made available in order to preserve such facts as can now be obtained about the German and other founders of Our Vil- lage," Helen Pendleton points out. "On the 30th of August 1737, the vessel "Samuel" commanded by Captain Hugh Percy, arrived in Philadelphia from Rot- terdam, last from Cowes, with 318 Pala- tines on board. This name was indiscrimi- nately applied to all passengers because of the numbers from South German, although there were Swiss, French, and Hollanders among the thousands who emigrated to Pennsylvania in the 18th century. Among the passengers on board the "Samuel" was Hans Adam Buedinger, his wife Anna Mar- garethe and four children. There was also a Peter Buedinger on board who may have been a relative, but nothing is known about him." '~rhe name Buedinger, which is the first form in which it appears in America, has now, after being spelled in various ways crystallized into forms, one borne by the Bittinger family of Pennsylvania and the other by the Bedingers of Virginia and Ken- tucky. Hans Adam Buedinger emigrant, know thereafter as Adam Buedinger, was born about 1689 and died about 1768. A pamphlet written by Miss Lucy Forney Bit- ringer states that he was a native of the vil- lage of Dorschel in Alsace and that his fa- ther's name was said to have been Peter. She thinks that the name is derived from a province in Hesse; perhaps Buedingen."

Fourteen of the 15 girls attend Jefferson High and have been in Scouting since first grade. While in London, the girls visited Wind- sor Castel, the Tower of London, Stonehnege, and Pax Lodge, one of the four Girl Scout World Centers. In Paris, the Scouts spent time at the Louvre and Notre Dame. The girls plan to put together a presentation of their travels to inspire other area girl scouts to travel abroad. The girls are shown here attempting to squeeze into a phone booth in London.
