Chloe wanted to be baptized in the same creek where she
learned to swim, fish, and catch trophy trout. On
Sunday, July 31, 11-year-old Chloe Plesic, 7th grade
student at Bermudian Springs Middle School, got her wish
-- she was baptized in her favorite swimming hole in
Latimore Creek -- the first person known to be baptized
there in the history of the EMMR Fairgrounds.
Chloe, daughter of Becky and Chris Plesic of York
Springs, decided on her own that she wanted to be
baptized at this spot, her mother says. Chloe started
fishing there when she was two years old and has been
fishing the children's section ever since. She
participates in the Adams County Trout Unlimited Fish
Derby held at the creek every year. She looks forward to
the Latimore Fair every year and attends with friends
and family. She wanted to be baptized at a place that's
special to her and a place she can always come back to.
Pastor David Rose of Morning Hour Chapel, a Brethren in
Christ Church in East Berlin, performed the ceremony.
Besides her parents, many of Chloe's family and friends
gathered to watch the ceremony and share her happiness.
EMMR President Nancy Miller presented a blue and white
Rocket T-shirt to Chloe after the ceremony in honor of
her special day.
Best wishes to Chloe and her family from all of us at
