As many of you may have read in last week’s paper, COVID 19 has disrupted Glenwood school once again after a positive case from the school. School was canceled from last Wednesday through the following Tuesday. As of this writing, there may be more schedule changes, so check the school Facebook page and watch for breaking news on The Sentinel website and flash alerts in your inboxes for any updates.

Travis McPherson would like to give a heads up that there will be a wedding taking place at the Xanadu house (the Upton place) on Fisher Hill Road on Nov. 7. There may be cars parked along the side of the road and extra traffic and people out and about that day, so please use caution when driving in that area.

I received some more Junior High School Rodeo results. Peyton Sanchey finished 5th both days recently at the last rodeo of the fall season in Basin City and is currently sitting 9th in the state out of 41 girls. High School and Junior High School rodeo will resume in the spring, and we’ll look forward to hearing how our Glenwood cowgirls fare then.

We recently had an alert that the 9-1-1 service was experiencing an outage. When this happens, we are advised to go to the fire station for any emergencies, and someone from the department will be standing by there. A neighbor fairly new to our community mentioned that she didn’t actually know where the fire station is located. The station is at 205 Division Street, and it might be a good idea to take a drive by to be sure of the location. Thanks to our Glenwood Fire Department for being ready in cases like this.

Here’s another reminder regarding Kids Jam at the church. For the months of November and December, Kids Jam will be the first and third Fridays, after school, due to Thanksgiving and Christmas Break. Kids and parents, mark your calendars for Nov. 6 and 20 and Dec. 4 and 18. All kindergarten through fifth graders are welcome to come for fun afternoons of games, snacks, music, bible lessons, and crafts. Jennifer reminds parents to please let the school office know if your child will be walking to the church instead of riding the bus home. Look for registration forms at the post office and the store. If you have questions, call Jennifer at (509) 364-3571.

And here’s one more reminder that you can still give to Operation Christmas Child! Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan Purse that provides shoebox gifts for children around the world. Please donate new clothing for boys and girls age 2-4, 5-9, and 10-14. We are also in need of full-size bars of soap and washcloths, toothbrushes, combs and brushes, and new, small toys and games for all age groups. The church will be packing shoeboxes the first weekend in November. Watch for details if you would like to join in to help. You can also pack a box by picking up an empty shoebox and packing guide at the church. Call Jennifer at (509) 364-3571 if you have questions.
