The annual Prime Rib Dinner at the Glenwood School will be held Wednesday, Oct. 11, from 5 to 8 p.m. The Sophomore class is hosting this year’s dinner, which includes prime rib, red potatoes, salad, dessert, and drinks. Tickets are being pre-sold and may be purchased now from any class member or the school office. Prices are $25 per individual, $40 for a couple, and a family four-pack special rate of $50, with add-on child rate of $10.

Adventure Club for kindergarten through fifth grade began Oct. 4 at the church. Adventure Club will be held every Wednesday after school from 3 to 4:30 p.m., or 12:15 to 1:45 p.m. on half days. Registration forms are available at the church and post office.

The Fall Bazaar is fast approaching. The list of vendors has been growing steadily and this is a great opportunity to buy home goods or Christmas gifts. There’s still time to sign up for a table to sell your woodworking, quilting, sewing, photography cooking, crafts, and whatever else you might like to sell. There is no charge for a table. There will be breakfast and lunch goodies for sale.

Proceeds from the kitchen will go to the Glenwood Band to purchase percussion instruments. Please come support the band. These kids have really been getting into their music under the direction of Jennifer Hallenbeck, and your support would be greatly appreciated. To reserve a table, contact Jennifer at (509) 364-3517 or jhallenbeck@gorge.net.

Our community is fortunate to have Todd French keep the flags for the various seasons and holidays and put them on display at the appropriate times. He needs to retire a couple of the American flags that have faded. He places them out for Memorial Day weekend and lets them continue to fly on the streets of our town until Veteran’s Day, then takes them down to store over winter. Todd is seeking donations of replacement flags or cash donations with which to purchase the replacements. Donation envelopes are available at the Glenwood General Store and Glenwood Station. This is a great cause that needs community support. Thanks for any help our readers can give. Todd also suggested that anyone wishing to have one or more of the faded, retired flags, is welcome to them.

Doug Daniels provided the September precipitation statistics, which show that we received 0.84 inches of rain for the month. The high for the last 22 years of record keeping was 5.54 inches in 2013 and the low was 0.0 in 1999, 2002, and 2006. The 22-year average for September was 0.80 inches. Thanks, Doug, for providing these interesting statistics.

Tillie Williams asked that we share a reminder that there are still two days left in 2017 to enjoy visiting Washington State Parks for free. There is no admission charge for day use on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11, and Nov. 24.
