Chili and spelling a great combination

 

March 21, 2018



There was a great turnout for the Glenwood School Chili Cook-off and spelling bee last Wednesday evening. Darren Jones won first place for his secret recipe chili. Good job, Darren. Following the chili dinner, everyone gathered in the gym for the spelling bee. The students all did a super job, and it was obvious they had worked hard to prepare. Congratulations to this year’s trophy winners: Jaxon Dean - grades K-1, Landyn Ziegler - 2nd grade, Macie Lorton - 3rd grade, Peyton Henderson – 4th grade, JaRae Long – 5th grade, and Allison McFall – middle school. Also, congratulations to those who got up there and gave it a good try. Glenwood has amazing students.

The final category, open to anyone in the audience, was a lot of fun as several brave adults and high school students got up there to give it a try. I’ll get personal for a bit here. Our shy little granddaughter summoned the courage to compete in her first school spelling bee, so I decided if she was brave enough, I could be, too. It really was a lot of fun, and, to my surprise, I won the open group trophy. Can you all spell septuagenarian? That’s me, in my 70s, and haven’t competed in a spelling bee since junior high. That trophy now resides in the bedroom of our granddaughter, because I got my courage from her and I felt she really deserved it. A big thank you goes to all the high school students and school staff who worked hard to plan, set up, and host the awesome, fun family night

The Glenwood School Educational Support Professionals (Glenwood Chapter of Public School Employees / SEIU 1948) greatly appreciated the wonderful gifts of awesome lunches last week provided by community members and the Glenwood School certified staff. It’s nice to feel appreciated and all of us here in Glenwood do greatly appreciate our Educational Support Professionals for their dedication to the Glenwood school students.

Glenwood Community Church is hosting a free Movie Night on Friday March 23, at 7 p.m. This month’s movie is “Wonder.” Based on the New York Times bestseller, “Wonder” tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters 5th grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time. Free popcorn (and Kleenex!) will be provided.

The public is invited to an informational meeting on plans for prescribed burning this year hosted by Mt. Adams Resource Stewards and Conboy Lake National Wildlife Refuge on March 27 at 7 p.m. at the Glenwood Grange.

The Glenwood Women’s Club is once again hosting the annual Easter Egg Hunt at the county park in Pine Vista. The Hunt begins at 10 a.m., so come a little early so your children can get lined out on which area is for their age group. Rumor has it the Easter Bunny will once again make an appearance, so this will be a good opportunity for cute photos with the Bunny.

Glenwood Community Church invites you to join them for Easter Services on April 1. Sunrise Service will begin at 6:30 a.m. at John and Tina Jorgensen’s on Kreps Lane. Easter Potluck Brunch will be served at 10 a.m.at the church, followed by the Easter Service at 11 a.m.

Ed and Terry Arnold have welcomed a delightful new member to their family. Sweet little Jessie, a mini Australian shepherd, joined their family a few weeks ago. We hear that Jessie is a cute little ball of fluff and looks like a tiny bear with lots of heart. When walking with the ladies and their dogs in the mornings, she already does well, keeping up for the three-mile walk. She is earning her keep by helping Terry with work at the office and loves to pester and love on her older dog sister, Bella. We also hear Jessie has also learned her lessons in cat manners. Welcome to our community, Jessie.

The Glenwood Women’s Club would like to thank Glenwood Station, Glenwood General Store, Trout Lake Grocery, Little Mountain Hardware, Riverview Bank-White Salmon, and the Sportsman Barber Shop for allowing Comfort Case Project donation jars to be placed in their businesses. This fund drive was very successful, and thanks also go to all the generous people who dug into their pockets and contributed. The club also greatly appreciates the individual donations that continue to roll in. If anyone wishes to donate, you may send a donation to the Glenwood Women’s Club, care of Carla Dillenburg, PO Box 149, Glenwood. The donations will help so many children find a little comfort and joy in otherwise fearful situations.

Seventy-five years and counting. The Klickitat County Fair reaches a milestone this year, as the fair, first begun in 1943, will celebrate its 75th anniversary this coming August. To help make the anniversary celebration more special, fair volunteers are working to collect old photos from past fairs. We know there are a few generations of 4-H and fair participants in our community. If you have photos to share from your times at the fair, showing your steer, lamb, or sewing projects, please contact Taunie Wilson at the school or call (509) 364-4184. Fair photos from all decades would be greatly appreciated. Through your photos, you can be part of this great celebration.

The next Camas Prairie Pioneer Meeting will be held Sunday, May 6 at 1 p.m. at Pioneer Memorial Community Church. On the agenda for the program is the history of the Lyle family and the descendants living today in Glenwood. There are other families related to the Lyle family, including Van Biber, Dean, Hinshaw, Snipes, and, distantly, the Balch name. If any of these families would like to be included in the program, contact Laurene Eldred at (509) 364-3495.
