Klickwood Volley on a roll

 

October 18, 2017



The Klickwood (Klickitat/Glenwood) volleyball team played at home in Glenwood last Tuesday and defeated Lyle/Wishram in three straight games. All the games were exciting and both teams played hard and well. Klickwood also came out on the winning end of games with Yakama Tribal on Thursday, Oct. 12, in Klickitat. The most exciting end of their week was competing in and winning first place in the Prosser Tournament C Squad bracket on Saturday, Oct. 14. Other schools in their bracket were Granger, College Place, Connell, Yakama Tribal, and Wahluke. These girls are having an amazing season. They played at Sunnyside Christian on Tuesday of this week and will be at home in Glenwood on Saturday, Oct. 21, for the annual alumni game. Brace yourselves, Glenwood Alumni, Klickwood is awesome.

Three members of the Mt. Adams 4-H Club had a good showing at the Washington State Fair. Jayla Avila, daughter of Lori and Jose Avila, received a blue ribbon with 100 out of 100 points for her beautiful blue jumpsuit. This was Jayla’s first year in 4-H sewing and she represented her club well. Also doing very well were Emerson and Alise Gimlin. Emerson, daughter of Heather and Brad Gimlin, received not only a blue ribbon for her dress, she also received an award of merit, which is awarded to outstanding entries. Emme also received red ribbon for two paintings that also qualified for State Fair. Alise, daughter of Amy and Brent Gimlin, received blue ribbons for her two dresses and one craft project. What a great showing by these three talented young ladies.

The Glenwood Fall Bazaar was a great success last Saturday. There were so many vendors, booths were set up in the halls and the library was converted to the dining room. The Glenwood Homemakers served delicious breakfasts and lunches, with proceeds going to the school band. The generous donation of their time and skills is so greatly appreciated by the community and all who enjoyed that wonderful fare.

Big thanks go to Jennifer Hallenbeck for working so hard to make this the most successful fall bazaar ever. Okay, that might be an exaggeration, as some of us weren’t here for all the past bazaars. Nevertheless, it was a fun day with many out-of-town visitors and a great turnout of local shoppers. The Glenwood Women’s Club also thanks all who supported their booth by purchasing items or donating funds to support the 2018 Comfort Cases for Foster Children project and other community projects.

The Glenwood High School Associated Student Body is sponsoring Socktober throughout the entire month of October. This is an easy and fun way to help those in need. The students are collecting pairs of brand new socks, with a goal of at least 100 pairs. A collection box has been placed just inside the office door. Please drop off sock donations there or send them with your children. Your help in this very worthwhile effort is greatly appreciated.

The Middle School girls’ team played at home against Centerville. Results of the game come too late for the news deadline, but we’ll report on that game next week. The middle school tournament will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 18th in Klickitat. Games begin at 4 p.m. We wish our Glenwood Eagles Middle School girls, with their coach, Sara McFall, the best of luck.

Here’s a reminder for parents that school will be dismissed at noon on Friday, Oct. 20.
