Community Halloween Festival is here

 

October 25, 2017



It’s time to start getting ready for the great Glenwood Community Annual Halloween Festival. Thanks to Claude at the Glenwood General Store and Jenny and Sarah at the Glenwood Station, a fun night of festivities is planned. There will be a Pumpkin Bake Off, which can be a dessert, main dish, appetizer, smoothie, or anything else, as long as it has pumpkin as one of its main ingredients. Entries must be received at the store no later than 5 p.m. The Store will also host the Carved Pumpkin Contest, with entries due no later than 5:30 p.m. There will be complimentary chili and clam chowder at the store.

The Glenwood Station will feature a costume contest, cotton candy machine, and a cookie decorating booth. Glenwood students will have fun Halloween booths at the store. Glenwood residents may bring their vehicles up to main street for Trunk or Treat. Prizes will be awarded for best car/truck decoration. Last, but not least, there will be a bonfire with s’mores, weather permitting.

Congratulations to Gavin Bensel and his football team for finishing in first place. His team will play in the tournament in Goldendale on Oct. 28. Other players who will participate in the tournament are Frank Lorton and Anthony Avila. Contact their moms for game times. Best of luck to all our Glenwood boys in the tournament.

We are sorry to hear of the passing of long-time Glenwood resident Earl Mansur. Until recently relocating to live with his daughter, Earl was a fixture at the restaurant and store coffee sessions. As soon as we receive information on a memorial service, we will share it soon. Our condolences to Earl’s family and dear friends.

Please help send the Pioneer Memorial Community Church youth group to Winter Camp. The youth group is hosting a Baked Potato Bar on Nov. 4 at the Glenwood School and will be accepting donations to help defray the camp costs. Dinner is from 5 to 7 p.m. Contact Jennifer Hallenbeck for more information.

It is with regret that Glenwood Women’s Club has made the decision to discontinue bingo. For many years, the Women’s Club enjoyed providing this monthly evening as a community service. However, over the past couple years, the attendance has dwindled to just a few loyal players and the cost of renting the hall, purchasing prizes, and providing refreshments has been a steady drain on club finances. The Club decided the money spent on bingo would be better used for the Comfort Cases project, scholarship fund, and other community projects and events the club supports. Glenwood Women’s Club is sorry to disappoint those few loyal players but the interest in bingo has fizzled out, as it did with Friday night pinochle. The club thanks all who supported bingo over the years.

There is still time to donate socks for a great cause. The Glenwood High School Associated Student Body is sponsoring Socktober throughout the entire month of October. This is an easy and fun way to help those in need. The students are collecting pairs of brand new socks, with a goal of at least 100 pairs. A collection box has been placed just inside the office door. Please drop off sock donations there or send them with your children. Your help in this very worthwhile effort is greatly appreciated.
