Farewell to Eddie


August 21, 2019

Sisters, cousins, and friends competed in the county ranch sorting competition last Saturday in Goldendale. Bailey and Riley Rickman (ages 8 and 9), Jocee Hoctor (age 9), and Joslyn Arnold (age 13) had a great time and some measure of success cutting their designated steers from the herd and moving them into the catch pen. Although none of our younger girls will move on to the finals, they gained great experience for next year’s fair. LeeAnn Burgin competed in the adult division and did quite well. She and Jake Hinderliter placed third in their division and will be in the ranch sorting finals at the fair on Wednesday evening. Way to represent Glenwood, LeeAnn!

Those of us in the Glenwood community who know and love Hazel Parsons were saddened to learn of the passing of her son, Eddie, last week. Many of you may remember that Eddie represented his mom in the Grand Marshall carriage in the Ketchum Kalf rodeo parade in June, when his mom wasn’t able to be here. A memorial service will be held at the Eagles hall in Bingen. When that date and time are decided, we’ll include it in the Glenwood news. Our deepest condolences go to Hazel and her family. Please keep them in your hearts and thoughts. If anyone would like Hazel’s address to send a card or note, please contact Carla Dillenburg or Mary Pierce.

Mt. Adams Community 4-H club has many dedicated members who could use your support for the Market Stock Sale. If you would like to donate to support our local youth, please contact Travis Miller either here in Glenwood or at the fair. Our 4-H kids will be busy with various class competitions and showing, including horses, swine, and steers. Others will have their sewing projects and baked goods on display. The rodeo itself begins at 12:30 on Saturday, following the Parade of Champions. Sunday’s rodeo will begin at 1:00.

Our local 4-H club sewing members worked diligently all year on their projects and it showed when it came time to be judged. Kay Carr reports that Jaycee McLean, Riley and Bailey Rickman, Emmerson Gimlin, and Jayla and Anthony Avila all received blue ribbons on their sewing projects. In addition, Jayla received two judge’s choice awards for modeling and construction of her projects. Way to go, Glenwood kids!

Saturday October 5th is the upcoming date for the Glenwood Fall Bazaar. The event will be held at the school from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Get ready to do your Christmas shopping early. If you are interested in setting up a booth, contact Marlis Dewey at The Glenwood Homemakers will be serving breakfast and lunch items, with proceeds going to Glenwood School projects. All veterans and military eat for free. The Blair Rummage Sale will also occur at the Grange hall that weekend so it will be a good day to travel to Glenwood.
