State testing of the students at Glenwood school 3rd through 8th grades continues through May 25th. The school asks you to please check the testing schedule to ensure that any necessary absences for appointments do not fall on those days, if possible. It is important that the students get plenty of rest and eat a good breakfast on the days they will be taking tests.

We are including another reminder of the memorial service for our long-time Women’s Club member and dear friend, Bonnie Parsons Harris, on Saturday, May 20. The service will be held at the Husum Church of God at 11 a.m., with a luncheon to follow. For anyone wishing to donate to an organization in Bonnie’s memory, her family asks that you consider donating to the Husum Church of God to assist with their on-going building and remodeling project.

Bonnie lived much of her childhood years in Glenwood and continued to keep close ties to the community. In addition to Glenwood Women’s Club, Bonnie belonged to the Camas Prairie Pioneers, the Glenwood Rodeo Association, West Klickitat Historical Society, and both the Husum church and the Seventh Day Adventist church in White Salmon. She volunteered at the Senior Center and helped deliver Meals on Wheels. She will be greatly missed by all her knew her. Our deepest condolences go out to Bonnie’s mother Hazel Parsons, her son Steven, grandson Zack, and all the Parsons family.

The Glenwood High School chapter of the National Honor Society will be hosting a blood drive at the school on Tuesday, May 23. Honor Society senior member Colton Troh is organizing the event. If the Glenwood chapter meets its goal of 40 pints, Colton will receive a college scholarship from the Red Cross. Please support two worthwhile causes, helping replenish the Red Cross blood bank and Colton’s opportunity for a scholarship. If you would like to add your name to the donor list, please contact Bridget McLaughlin or Colton at the school, (509) 364-3438.

For the last several years, Glenwood Grange 94 has set up a welcome table at the Mt. Adams Cemetery during Memorial Day weekend. The Grange will be there again this year, greeting visitors and providing a visiting area where old friends and acquaintances can sit and share memories of their families and of growing up in Glenwood. Coffee, juice, and cookies will be served and we encourage all Glenwood residents and visitors from out of town to stop by to visit and share their knowledge of Glenwood history. This year, any residents who would like to volunteer to help host are most welcome to come out and sit with the Grange members. It truly is a very rewarding experience.
