Fondly recalling those we lost


January 8, 2020

As we begin a new year, we want to take a moment to remember those we lost during 2019. For a small community, any loss is hard, but we have suffered the loss of several dear friends in the past year. Some lived here in our community and others had a deep connection here. We would like to take a moment to remember, Angel Murillo, Mark Wiltz, Tillie and Lonnie Williams, Bobbie Burns, Gary Upton, Teunis Wyers, Eddie and Hazel Parsons, Doug Daniels, Tom Eldred, Jackie Rosier, and June Allen.

But, as is the circle of life, we shared news of the births of babies Natalie Louise Miller, Haizer Ryett Sanchey, Everlyann Marie Wheelhouse, Calvin Spencer Russum, Frank Adam Dillenburg, Christian Clark Chalmers, and Kasper Eugene Kreps. We greatly miss those we have lost and celebrate the new arrivals in our lives.

We were sorry to hear of the loss of a good friend to our community, June Allen. Although a resident of White Salmon, June was a Glenwood Rodeo Association member for many decades. For years she was one of those members working quietly behind the scenes to keep the business of the rodeo flowing smoothly. When no longer able to continue to actively work at the rodeo, June still performed audits of the rodeo accounts, continuing to lend her expertise for several years. Her quiet presence at rodeo workdays and meetings will be greatly missed and we extend our deepest condolences to Charlie and all their extended family.

This frustrating weather with the lack of snow has caused the Vintage Snowmobile races scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 11, to be rescheduled for Feb. 1 and 2. Let’s hope the snow falls in time for this exciting event. Vintage Snowmobile Races will take place at the ice oval track, 1807 BZ-Glenwood Highway starting at 10 a.m. and include several different classes. There is a suggested donation of $10 at the gate for spectators. Races include all sleds model year 1985 and older and registration closes at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 10. There is a $25 pre-entry fee plus $10 insurance fee. Contestants may register or receive more information regarding the races at, or by contacting Eddie Murray by telephone at (509) 250-0576 (cell) or (509) 364-3352 (home).

On Jan. 11, Glenwood Ketchum Kalf Rodeo will be crowning the 2020 queen, Brandi Vance. The coronation and fundraiser for queen Brandi will take place at the Goldendale American Legion beginning at 6:30 p.m. and will include a silent auction, dinner, and entertainment. A roast beef dinner will be served and tickets for the dinner are $20 per person. Please contact Julie Vance at (509) 840-0749 for dinner tickets. Brandi will be raising funds to help cover her expenses as she travels around Oregon and Washington during her reign, representing our rodeo.

The church will hold another Kids Jam for kindergarten through fifth-grade youth on Jan. 10 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Dinner will be served, followed by a fun evening of Bible games and stories.

The Glenwood Rodeo Association has been a big part of the Glenwood Community and Klickitat County for 85 years. The Association is strictly a non-profit organization. As such, the rodeo grounds and/or dance hall are available to rent for public and private events. For more rental information, please contact Chris Miller at (509) 364-3427.
