School starts soon

 

August 8, 2018



We received the school newsletter with the August and September calendars. Seems like summer is just flying by. School will start Aug. 29, and parents and students are beginning to shop for new clothes and school supplies. If you did not receive a school supply list, you can get one from Toni in the school office.

As we think about our students heading back to school here, it’s nice to catch up on news of Glenwood alumni. Becca Hallenbeck, daughter of Butch and Jennifer Hallenbeck, will begin her senior year at Whitworth University in Spokane this fall. She is majoring in music and will then complete her Masters in Teaching.

Baylee Couch, son of Heather Gimlin and Shane Couch, is currently a junior at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach. He is majoring in Unmanned Aircraft Systems and is on track to graduate in May 2020.

Amy and Jake Keithly, daughter and son of Bryan and Pam Keithly, are both Forest Service employees working in Fire Management. Amy is currently on a fire in Montana while Jake is on one in Idaho. Our thoughts are with both of them.

We are sorry to hear of the passing of 97-year-old Audrey Olson, daughter of Glenwood pioneers Buck and Mary Martzall. Many of you in Glenwood might remember Audrey. Her family will hold a memorial service at the Glenwood Grange Hall on Aug. 19. Anyone who knew Audrey is invited to attend. The family will be serving tea and cookies in honor of a dear lady who enjoyed special occasions where tea and cookies were served.

The Glenwood Homemakers will once again hold the Fall Bazaar on Oct. 20 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Vendors should contact Jennifer Hallenbeck, (509) 364-3517, to reserve a space. Now is the time to start making plans for your bazaar space, whether you are an individual, a business, or a group. It’s a great opportunity and fun social gathering.

The fire danger is quite high in our county and in most of the state. Doug Daniels reports that the rainfall for July was 0.0. There have only been five other years in the last 23 years in which July had 0.0 rainfall. The high over the last 23 years was 1.3 inches in 2000. The 23-year average for July is 0.29. Please be extra careful with fire and machinery and equipment that might cause sparks. There are too many fires occurring every day to take any chances. Thank you.
