Glenwood student among finalists

Our hearts are heavy here in Glenwood again this week as we hear of the passing of Mark Wiltz. Mark and Michelle moved to Glenwood about a year and a half ago, Hood River transplants coming to enjoy the serenity and beauty of our Glenwood valley. They set up their Wind Paddle business in the old Bird Creek Inn and began making friends and making lasting impressions on all who were lucky enough to make their acquaintance. They became involved in community activities and joined the Glenwood Rodeo Association in time to help prepare for and work at the 2018 rodeo. Mark was a quick learner on arena gates and enjoyed adding a new experience to the memories of the very full life he had lived to that point.

On a personal note, I will always remember the smiling, newly-wed couple who rode their bikes right up to my token booth at the 2017 rodeo soon after moving here. They introduced themselves and I knew immediately these newcomers would be a very welcome addition to our community. Our deepest condolences go to Michelle and all of Mark’s family. He touched the hearts of many of us here in Glenwood in the short time he was able to live here. Rest in peace, Mark.

School will be dismissed at noon on Friday, Dec. 20, and there will be no preschool. Christmas break begins that day. However, the high school basketball teams will not be relaxing at home. They’ll be participating in the Helix basketball tournament on the 20th and 21st. Good luck, Klickwood.

After receiving more than 100 nominations, the office of the Washington State Superintendent of Public Instruction has selected 10 high school senior girls and 10 high school senior boys from our state to be considered for the 2018-19 U. S. Presidential Scholar Award. It gives us great pleasure to share the news that Glenwood High School senior Kinley Troh, daughter of Toni and Bill Troh, has been selected as one of 10 senior girls whose nominations will move forward to the U.S. Department of Education for consideration as a Presidential Scholar. We are all keeping our fingers crossed for you, Kinley, and are so proud of you. Congratulations for this prestigious nomination.

Eva Feller is 100 years young! What an amazing milestone. Come help Eva celebrate at her home on Dec. 24, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Cake and coffee will be served, and Eva says no gifts, please. Happy birthday, Eva.

Here’s another reminder that the regular Sunday services at Pioneer Memorial Community Church will begin at 11 a.m. Mark your calendars for Christmas Eve service at the church on Dec. 24 at 7 p.m. All are invited for a special time of reflection about the real reason for celebrating Christmas.
