The Beachy family has lived in Meade, Kansas for the past 11 years, owning and operating the Budget Host Moon Mist Motel. The family consists of Dave, Maggie, and the four children; Reddie 20, Eddie 17, D.J. 6 and Susie 3.
Dave purchased the motel in 1997, having had no experience in the hospitality business. Business was quite mediocre the first two years until his Filipino bride, Maggie, and her two boys arrived in the US on Christmas day 2000. She provided a special touch with her domestic skills of cleaning and decorating and business has been booming ever since.
The two older boys have helped a lot since their arrival also. Dave has adopted them and is quite proud of their school achievements and athletic prowess. Two little blessings from above have joined the family in 2002 and 2005 in D.J. and Susie. They are cute, bright, inquisitive youngsters that have brought much joy to not only their family but to the whole community.
