A very large number of family and friends, including many from out of town, gathered to celebrate the life of Lela Wellenbrock Ward on Saturday, Jan. 27. Lela lived her entire 93 years in Glenwood and was renowned for her card playing, gardening, and culinary skills. She was a 63-year member of the Glenwood Grange and served as treasurer of that organization for 50 of those years. Her memorial service was a wonderful tribute to a life well lived. Lela will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her

Here's another reminder of the purpose of the Comfort Cases donation jars you may have seen around town. Glenwood Women’s Club is putting together comfort cases (backpacks) for foster and homeless children in Klickitat County. This is the second year of the project. In 2017, the club donated 30 cases. For 2018, we hope to again put together 30 cases, focusing on three age groups—infants and toddlers, ages three through nine, and 10 and older. The club is placing donation jars in some of the businesses in Glenwood, Trout Lake, Goldendale, and White Salmon as our fund drive for this project begins. Thank you all for any support you can give to this much needed, very worthwhile cause. If you would like more information regarding the comfort cases project, call Carla Dillenburg at (509) 364-0012.
