Carr receives Lifetime Achievement Award


September 25, 2019

We are excited to share the news that Kay Carr has been selected to receive the Excellence 4-H Volunteer Lifetime Achievement Award from the Washington State 4-H Advisory Board. This well-deserved award will be presented to Kay in a special ceremony in Seattle on Oct. 11. We in Glenwood know we’re lucky to have Kay. She is involved in many things and gives her all to make every program or event a great success. She has been a volunteer for the Klickitat County Fair for many years, serving in various capacities. Kay has also been a dedicated 4-H leader here in Glenwood, guiding kids through their projects and helping them prepare for the fair each year. Congratulations, Kay. It’s great to see your dedication to our community and our county honored in this way.

Many from Glenwood attended memorial services for Teunis Wyers last Thursday and Sunday. The huge crowds at the celebrations of his life attested to how he touched so many lives through his friendship and his volunteerism. Before Teunis passed away, he was working hard to revitalize the Camas Prairie and Vicinity Pioneers Association. A while back, he shared his plans for a history presentation for the October meeting regarding early Wyers history in Glenwood. His enthusiasm for the upcoming meeting was contagious, and we were all looking forward to hearing his presentation. Sadly, Teunis passed away before he was able to present his program.

Many of us here in Glenwood don't want his efforts to revitalize the organization he deeply cared about be in vain, so planning has begun for the October meeting. Due to other events taking place on the first Sunday, the Pioneers meeting will be held at the Glenwood Grange on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 1 p.m. The afternoon will begin with a potluck dinner, followed by a program on the history of the old Lakeside School. The old schoolhouse still stands at the entrance to our valley and is a remnant of the rich history of Camas Prairie and Glenwood.

The very interesting program will be moderated by Laurene Eldred with input from some Glenwood old-timers. We hope you will come and enjoy the potluck lunch and a great history presentation to honor Teunis and support an organization that meant a great deal to him. If you have old photos or other history of Lakeside School, please bring them to share at the program.

The Glenwood middle school girls’ volleyball team, coached by Sara McFall, had a great game against Trout Lake last Wednesday and came out as the victors. Good job, Eagles. Please check the school website to get the middle school schedule and come out to support our younger athletes in their upcoming games.

The Klickwood high school volleyball team played a great game against Stevenson last Thursday night. Klickwood defeated the Stevenson varsity in three straight games, and that third game was close and exciting. The Klickwood JV girls defeated Stevenson JV in two straight games. Way to go, Klickwood. On Saturday, the team travels to the valley for the annual White Swan Tournament. This is another chance to compete against much larger schools and we wish them luck.

Don’t forget the alumni volleyball game in Glenwood on Saturday, Oct. 12 at 6 p.m. Please contact Jaecee Hoctor or Heather Gimlin at the school, (509) 364-3438, if you are a Glenwood graduate and would like to come out and play with other alumni. It’s guaranteed to be an evening of fun.
