Join us to honor Lorene


The Glenwood Community recently said goodbye to a dear lady who showed us all what a life well lived truly means. Friends of Lorene Ladiges are invited to a Celebration of Life potluck at the Ladiges home. The gathering at 70 Lake Rd. will take place Saturday, May 26, from 11 a.m. until whenever. We will share the moving words from the invitation here, just as the family wrote them: “A life well lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. Please join us as we celebrate the life of Lorene Ladiges with a potluck gathering. Bring a dish to share and your fun memories. Let’s remember the happy times, raise a glass with cheer and celebrate in honor of her life. The family will supply hamburgers and hot dogs. There will also be an ice cream bar to enjoy Lorene’s favorite food—there’s always room for ice cream.”

The Glenwood Homemakers Club has been nominated to receive the 2018 Washington Association of School Administrators (WASA) Community Leadership Award for the Columbia River Region. The Homemakers are being recognized for their service to the Glenwood School District and the Glenwood Community.

The award letter reads, in part, “For the last 40 years, you have shown your support for students by hosting the annual awards banquet, which is a longstanding tradition that the students, staff, and community look forward to every year, as well as providing a scholarship for both high school and college students. The help that you provide to your community is also invaluable—jumping in to meet local needs, providing treasured moments at the Christmas concert, and lightening families’ darkest days by preparing and serving meals at funerals. All of your efforts to support students and your community are admirable and greatly appreciated.”

The Homemakers have been invited to attend the Honorary Awards Breakfast Ceremony in Vancouver on May 18. Congratulations, Homemakers, for this well-deserved award. We in the Glenwood community greatly appreciate everything you do for all of us.

Glenwood High School sophomore Andrew McFall, the lone high school golf team member this year, had a good showing at sub-District on May 8.
