Wedding spotlight: Alisa and Peter Wassenaar

Alisa Wenger and Peter Wassenaar met at a Bible study nearly nine years ago while they were students at The Ohio State University, but they didn’t start dating until January 2010. They were married Sept. 5, 2012, at a civil wedding in Enschede, the Netherlands, and in a church wedding in Denekamp, The Netherlands (church weddings do not have any legal power there, which is the reason for two ceremonies).

Holiday Appetizers!

Company’s coming! More than any other time of year, the weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day require a repertoire of hors d’oeuvres. We’ll welcome drop-in guests, reunite with out-of-town friends, host cocktail parties and gather for family dinners. Appetizers always are appropriate.

ChildReach Ministries | Nonprofit spotlight

ChildReach Ministries, an international faith-based nonprofit organization formed in Canton, plans to open a community center in the former Martin Elementary School building for under-served children in the southeast quadrant of the city.
