Local rodeo rising star aims for Junior High Nationals


Kaitlyn Masden, daughter of Lacey and Colby Masden, has been very successful this year in Washington State Junior High School Rodeo events. Kaitlyn, an eighth grader in the Glenwood Middle School, is a member of the Goldendale Junior High School Rodeo Association. Recently she placed in three out of four events at the rodeo in Ellensburg and is currently sitting in first place in pole bending for the Junior High association.

She has two more rodeos this fall, then will have a break before competition begins again in the spring of 2017. Her goal is to do well enough to make it to the Junior High National Finals in Tennessee. Kaitlyn’s Junior Rodeo team holds three fundraisers throughout the year, including making and selling Christmas swags, a taco feed, and the Junior High School rodeo in Goldendale, something all of us can support. Keep Kaitlyn in your thoughts as she strives to reach her goal. In addition to her rodeos, she also is a standout member of the Glenwood Middle School volleyball team. She has made her family and all of Glenwood very proud. Kaitlyn will be a member of the Goldendale High School Rodeo Association next year.

Glenwood Women’s Club will no longer host pinochle on Friday nights due to lack of attendance. There will be no bingo on the first Friday in October as the hall has another scheduled event at the Grange Hall that day. Bingo will be held the first Friday of November, and the club will evaluate whether there is enough support and attendance for that function to continue to hold it throughout the year.

With sadness we report the loss of two former Glenwood community members. Don Lyle, son of George and Marcellaine Lyle, passed away on September 9th. His service was held on Saturday, the 24th with burial beside his parents in the White Salmon cemetery.

Sadie Wellenbrock Jackson also recently passed away in California. Sadie, who would have celebrated her 95th birthday next month, was the daughter of George and Sophie Wellenbrock. She lived most of her married life in California and leaves behind her two children, Donna and Dean and their families, and her sister Lela Ward of Glenwood. Both former community members will be greatly missed.

We were also sorry to hear of the passing of long time Glenwood resident Joyce Washburn. Joyce leaves behind her husband, Bruce and their four children and families. We extend condolences to the Washburn family for their loss.

The Camas Prairie and Vicinity Pioneer Association will hold its biannual meeting on Sunday, Oct. 2 at the Pioneer Memorial Community Church fellowship hall here in Glenwood. President Joann Hutton advises that the gathering will start at 1 p.m. with a potluck dinner, followed by a brief business meeting and a program.

The program topic will be Glenwood barns. Local historian Laurene Eldred will display some of her Glenwood barn photos. Members and visitors are asked to bring any Glenwood barn photos they may have to display, along with any historical information and stories they would like to share regarding the barns. Henry Balsiger will be on hand to demonstrate how to scan the photos onto computers or storage devices. Everyone is welcome to attend, regardless of whether you are a Pioneer Association member.

Upcoming Events:

Pioneer Association Meeting Oct. 2, 1 p.m., Pioneer Memorial Community Church

Middle School Volleyball at home – Oct. 6, 5:30 p.m.
