Glenwood was a bustling little town last Saturday as hunters came into town and visitors came to attend the Homemakers’ Fall Bazaar. There was such a wide variety of unique and useful items available at the bazaar, I have to admit I got most of my Christmas shopping done now. I so appreciate those bazaars. The food served by the Homemakers was delicious, and it was great to see former Glenwood residents here participating in the bazaar, including Yvonne Ladiges Bossert and Vicky Mitchem. The Glenwood Women’s Club and, I’m sure, The Glenwood Homemakers and all the vendors appreciate all who came and shopped and/or enjoyed the delicious food. For the Homemakers and Women’s Club, it was an opportunity to raise funds for all the community service projects they do here. Thank you to all who came to support this fun event.

The Klickwood volleyball team is still doing great. They are 7-2 on the season as of this writing and looking very strong. They played South Wasco County in Maupin last Tuesday, October 5, and are playing Lyle/Wishram in Klickitat on Thursday, the 6th. They also filled in for Condon in a tournament in Molalla last weekend. I’ll have results of the tournament and games next week. Klickwood will participate in the Wheeler JV Tournament on October 9th.

The Glenwood middle school girls also continue to play well. Their September 27 game with Bickleton was postponed due to a power outage over there. They defeated Centerville here on their home court last Wednesday, the 29th. They played Trout Lake here in Glenwood on Monday, October 4, and Klickitat in Klickitat on the 6th. Again, this column had to be submitted before the games were played, so I’ll share the results next week.

I know our rodeo athletes were in Milton-Freewater last weekend. I believe this was their last fall rodeo, and their competition will begin again in the spring. I’ll share their rodeo news next week. The four Glenwood competitors—Joslyn Arnold, Peyton Sanchey, Emma Patterson, and Blaine Arnold— are all doing well so far in this fall segment of their rodeo season.

School will be dismissed at noon on Friday, October 8. Because it’s also hunting season, Main Street in Glenwood will have a lot of traffic. Please watch out for kids riding bikes and walking.

Here’s another reminder that Youth activities are beginning again at Glenwood Community Church. Youth Group for kids in 6th-12th grade is meeting every Sunday evening from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Kids Jam will begin on October 8 for kids in kindergarten through 5th grade and will meet the second Friday of October, November, and December from 6 to 8 p.m. Both Youth Group and Kids Jam include lots of fun and games as they study God's Word together. Jennifer says, “Hope to see you there.” Call Pastor Butch or Jennifer at (509) 364-3517 or find us on facebook at facebook.com/GlenwoodPMCC.
