Congratulations to Marie Weber and Gregory Dechand! Both are Glenwood members of the TLG track team who qualified to compete in the State Track Meet this weekend in Cheney, Washington.

Best wishes to Marie, Gregory and the rest of the TLG track team as they compete in the State Finals May 25 and 26!

Glenwood Grange 94 will be serving coffee and cookies at the Mt. Adams Cemetery on Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. The Grange revived this tradition last year; and it was very well received by visitors to the cemetery. Many visitors from out of town enjoyed the opportunity to reminisce about Glenwood people and history.

The Glenwood Grange will not meet in June; and the next scheduled meeting will be July 10 at 1 p.m. at the Grange Hall. The Glenwood Grange is dedicated to serving the community and welcomes anyone interested in becoming a member. The Grange will host the pinochle gatherings each Friday night from June through August. Friday night Bingo will be discontinued during those months.

Rhonda Spies created and donated a beautiful king-sized quilt to the Glenwood Grange for a raffle prize. Raffle tickets will be available soon from grange members – with the lucky ticket to be drawn during the Grange Harvest Dinner in October. Proceeds from the raffle will go into the grange’s building maintenance and repair fund.

The popular sewing and crafting days at the Glenwood Grange have been expanded to the first and third Wednesdays of each month from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Attendees may bring a sack lunch; and a $3 donation is requested to help defray utility costs.

Every Father’s Day weekend since 1941 has found Glenwood Women’s Club members cooking and serving tasty treats during the Ketchum Kalf Rodeo. The proceeds from their food service are used to fund scholarships for Glenwood High School graduates. This year the Women’s Club is in need of volunteers to help in the cook shack. Please contact Mary Pierce at 364-3344 if you are interested in volunteering for a few hours for this worthy cause.

Plans are underway for the 78th annual Ketchum Kalf Rodeo by Glenwood Rodeo Association members. A work day is scheduled for Sunday, May 27, beginning at 10 a.m. with a potluck lunch around noon. Any and all help is welcome. Please bring rakes, shovels, paint brushes and chainsaws. For questions, please contact Terry at 364-3371.

The Glenwood School Garden/Cooking Club will be holding their annual plant sale on June 2, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the greenhouse. In preparation for this event, there is a desperate need for three-inch and four-inch pots for transplanting. If you have pots to donate, please leave them at the greenhouse behind the school.
