Try out for Ketchum Kalf Queen


In last week’s news, we mistakenly reported that Kinley Troh’s shot put distance was a new Glenwood School record. It was a season record for her, not a school record and we are sorry for the confusion. Nevertheless, Kinley had an amazing track season, as did Kevan Bren and Brooklyn Emerson. They all did well at the State track meet in Cheney last weekend. Brooklyn, only a 9th grader, earned a spot on the podium with an 8th place in the pole vault. While Kevan and Kinley did not earn podium spots in their events, they both did very well. The fact that our tiny high school sent one quarter of the student body to State is something of which the whole community can be proud. These three are not only great athletes, but also excel academically. Way to go, Kinley, Kevan, and Brooklyn.

Kaitlyn Masden, daughter of Colby and Lacey Masden, had an amazing high school rodeo season. Kaitlyn finished fourth in the poles in the Washington State High School Rodeo standings. She has qualified for National High School Rodeo finals in Tennessee, with your amazing horse, TooGee. Way to go, Kaitlyn. The entire Glenwood community is so proud of your success.

Jenna Dean and Jacque Long celebrated their wedding last weekend in the yard of the bride’s parents, Jerry and Mary dean. The weather and venue were perfect. The wedding party and all the guests enjoyed the beautifully landscaped yard with majestic Mt. Adams looming in the background. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Long.

We want to extend a big thank you to Todd French and Cynthia Hoodenpyl for, once again, putting up the American flags around town in honor of Memorial Day. We so appreciate this service you provide for our community for every holiday.

Mt. Adams Community 4-H club secretary Jayla Avila would like to remind the community that the 4-H members will have their pop stand under the bleachers again this year and will also be selling rodeo programs. Be sure to stop by their stand and buy a cold pop to support these great kids.

The beautiful and scenic Mt. Adams Cemetery in Glenwood had many visitors over the Memorial Day weekend. The Cemetery District Board member Dan Hathaway, along with Peggy Hathaway and groundskeeper Pam Keithly, have done a wonderful job getting the cemetery cleaned up and mowed after the long winter. Thank you for all you did and continue to do. Many visitors stopped by the Glenwood Grange 94 table to enjoy coffee, juice, cookies, and good visiting and reminiscing. A big thank you to Carla Dillenburg for volunteering her time to help the Grange members with this important annual event.
