Blood drive coming up
May 8, 2019
The Class of 2019 invites all mothers to the Mothers’ Day Tea on May 9 at 1 p.m. in the school gymnasium.
And, since this is the time to honor mothers, all ladies in our community are invited to attend the annual ladies’ brunch at Glenwood Community Church on Saturday, May 11, at 8:30 a.m. The men will be cooking and serving.
Glenwood High School hosts a track meet at Eldred Field on Friday, May 10, beginning at 3 p.m.
Glenn and Mary Pierce, accompanied by Linda and Ray Walker of Snowden, enjoyed attending the annual Cattle Barons Weekend in Pendleton on May 3 and 4. The Pierces’ young friend, Barry O’Leary of Silver Lake, Oregon, has competed in the Northwest Ranch Bronc championships there for the past seven years, since he was 16 years old. This year Barry won both go-arounds to win the Northwest championship and also received a buckle for having the wildest ride of the evening. The Ranch Bronc event is much different that what is seen in standard rodeos. The horses are unbroken three-year-olds that put on a wild and exciting show. In November, Barry will head to Winnemucca, Nevada, for the Western States Ranch Rodeo National Finals.
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.
It’s great that the equipment at Doug Daniels’ weather station is up and running again. Last week we caught up on the data for the months missed during the down time. Here is the rainfall information for April. The April 2019 total rainfall was 3.06 inches. The April high was 3.31 in 2011, the low was 0.2 in 2008 and the 24-year average was 1.45. We’re glad your back in the weather business, Doug. Thanks for collecting and sharing the weather information with us.
