A love story with ties to bind...

Modified: Wednesday, Mar 12th, 2014

Members of the Dakota Wesleyan Hand Bell Choir perform with the choir in the final number of last Friday’s concert in Guernsey. The group of 40 musicians performed for nearly an hour as part of their spring tour.

Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, SD is a small college but it has a lot of meaning for at least two families in the Guernsey area. Bruce and Gail Heimbuck are both DWU alumni and were involved in arranging the stop by the DWU choir in Guernsey to perform as part of the choir’s spring tour.

The school has an even deeper meaning for the Frederick family. Chet and Harriet Frederick also attended DWU in the 1930s. He was from a ranching family near Guernsey and Harriet grew up in Mitchell, SD, home to the DWU campus. They met and were married and returned to live on the family ranch, raising three sons, Doug, Chuck and Rick. On Friday, during the choir luncheon served at the Presbyterian Church, DWU Alumni Relations Director Jackie Wentworth joined Doug and Chuck in telling the choir members about Chet and Harriet’s meeting, the Frederick family and the storied history of the ranch that began in the late 1800s.
