Chloe and Pastor David Rose


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 EMMR.
