The rodeo is here


Glenwood’s most exciting weekend of the year is upon us. The 83rd annual Ketchum Kalf Rodeo will kick off on Friday night, June 16, with the Bull Bash at the rodeo arena. Thirty-five top bull riders from the Pacific Northwest will compete for a $10,000 purse under the lights. Food vendors and a beer garden will be available. The rodeo takes place Saturday and Sunday, June 17 and 18, with grand entry at 12:30 p.m. each day. This is a great family event and a fun way to treat Dad to a day out. Admission each day is $10 for adults, $3 for kids 12-4, and free for ages 3 and under.

Don’t forget the annual Cowboy Breakfast at the school from 6:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Sunday, served by the Glenwood Homemakers. We also want to remind everyone of the collection boxes that will be available at the breakfast to collect items for the residents of the Oregon Veterans’ Home. Many of the residents of the Veterans’ Home have little financial means, and every day products and items that we all take for granted are a luxury to them.

The Homemakers are spearheading this project, but they want it to really be a community project. The goal is to collect items such as the tasty 100-calorie snack packs of cookies and crackers, bottled water, diet and regular pop, microwave popcorn, non-alcoholic beer and wine, and many other items along those lines. Any monetary donations will be given to the Veterans’ Recreation Fund at the OVH. One hundred percent of monetary donations to this fund are spent on the residents. If you have questions regarding what to donate, please contact Jeannie Kuhnhausen at (509) 364-4167. Thank you, Glenwood Homemakers, for kicking off this project that will truly be a community-wide effort.

Cowboy Church will take place at the rodeo hall Sunday morning from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Pastor Butch Hallenbeck will lead the service. There will be no regular service at the Community Church that day. Following the church service, the Ketchum Kalf Rodeo parade will be held at 11 a.m. in downtown Glenwood. If you would like to enter the parade with your bike, car, horse, or float, there’s still time to sign up. Please contact parade coordinator Chris Kuhnhausen at (509) 281-0192 to obtain a parade entry form. Entries will line up at the corner of Division and Main at 10 a.m.

Monday, June 12, is the last day of school. Drivers, please be aware there will be many more children, walking, running, biking, and skateboarding around town. Swimming lessons begin that same day and run for two weeks, from noon to 1 p.m. each day at the Hood River swimming pool.

We’ve had news from a former Glenwood High School graduate. Kaylene Tyndall, daughter of Suzy Tyndall Wilkin, recently received her Masters of Social Work degree from Boise State University. She will remain in Boise, where she has accepted a position offering counseling to adolescent children, adults, and families. Congratulations, Kaylene, on this great accomplishment.

Summer worship times at the Community Church begin June 25. There will be no Sunday school, and the worship service will begin at 10 a.m. Youth group for 6th – 12th grade will continue to meet over the summer on Sunday evenings at 6 p.m. Summer hours will go through Labor Day weekend.

Maker Fun Factory Vacation Bible School is coming to the Pioneer Memorial Community Church June 26– 30 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day, with a Fun Friday Finale at 6:30 p.m. This fun-filled week is for all kids ages 4 years old through 6th grade. It’s the best week of summer, with amazing experiments, creative games, lip-smacking lunch, surprising adventures, and incredible music. Registration forms are available at the church and the post office.

Diana Notestine sends word she is hosting Goldendale’s First Annual City-Wide Yard Sales event on June 16-17. So far, 46 yard sales have already signed up to participate in this large event. This was formerly known as the 13+ Mile Yard Sale.
