Penny Guldin

Hi, my name is Penny Guldin.  I am married to John Guldin.  We have three great kids, 2 boys and 1 girl, Spencer, Skyler and Parker.  I've been a member here at Christ Dryville since 1960.  I was baptized, confirmed and married here.  My children were all baptized and confirmed here as well.  My husband became a member when we got married.  I taught Sunday School for 20+ years, helped with "Youth Group", helped to make hoagies, helped at dinners and other events.  I have my own business at my home, "Penny's Shear Heaven" and I also work at the races as a "scorer".  In my free time I love to be outdoors (in the warm weather).  I like to walk, garden and swim.
