Will the Pioneers Association continue?


Our community owes a huge thanks to all the Glenwood School students and staff for their hard work picking up trash from along our roads and streets. They observed Earth Day in a great way, making our little part of earth much nicer. Even the preschoolers got involved, picking up trash from the school field and playground. Thank you, Glenwood School for caring about your community and making it nicer for all of us. Now we need to do our part and strive to keep our town, roads, and streets free of litter.

Here’s a reminder that the Camas Prairie and Vicinity Pioneer Association meeting will take place at the Glenwood school multi-purpose room on Sunday, May 5 at 1 p.m. This will be a potluck lunch meeting, the purpose of which is to determine whether there is enough interest in the community to continue the Pioneers Association. In order to take action, the bylaws require 10 participants in attendance. Everyone is welcome to attend.

We’re reporting this again because it is so important to Glenwood students currently in college or trade school. The Glenwood Homemakers are offering a Continuing Education Scholarship. This scholarship is open to anyone (except 2019 high school graduates) who has been a Glenwood resident for at least two years or whose primary residence is Glenwood, has at least 12 post-secondary credit hours and will be attending an accredited two- or four- year college, university, or trade school at least half-time this coming fall. Deadline to apply is June 3. To request an application packet or for more information, please contact Chris Miller at (509) 364-3427 or

Glenwood school is hosting a blood drive on May 21 from 1:30 to 6:30 p.m. Contact Aaron Oldenburg at the school for more information.
