GLENWOOD HOMEMAKERS

4-H in Glenwood has enjoyed the addition of a new club this year and quite a few new members. Welcome everyone.

The Hoof-N-Horn beef club, led by Harry Miller, weighed its steers in a pre-show in Goldendale on April 8. The weights from pre-show are used to determine the steers' rates of gain at the fair in August.

Mae's new Wilderness Club has been busy planning some fun outdoor activities and field trips.

The cooking and sewing groups have been meeting weekly since January. The kids have cooked some tasty treats. After some learning activities, the sewing groups have begun working on their project for Style Review Day. These groups went ice skating at Clackamas Mall during spring vacation, too.

Pam Keithly's craft club has made some cute seasonal decorations at its meeting.

Tonia Warren's horse club held a 50/50 raffle to raise money for the purchase of riding helmets for its members. The club thanks the community for its support.

The Glenwood PTO is still saving Campbell's Soup labels and General Mills box tops for education. You can drop labels off at the school, Big C Grocery or Shade Tree Inn.

The Glenwood High School Rodeo Team has been on the road again the past two weekends. It traveled to Silverdale April 7 and 8 and to Omak on April 14 and 15. There are four fall and 14 spring qualifying rodeos, leading up to Washington State High School Rodeo finals in Pasco over Memorial Day weekend. The Glenwood team had a good rodeo at Omak. Josh Hoctor placed both days in team roping with 3rd and 6th place finishes, along with a sixth place in calf roping. Kim Hoctor took 10th place in pole bending Saturday. She tied two goats in 10.0 and 9,9 seconds and is making her presence known in that event. Shayne Arnold widened her first place lead at the state level with a second and first place finish in breakaway roping. Her two first place finishes in pole bending earned her a nice jacket for winning the average for the weekend. The team will travel to Ellensburg this weekend.

The Glenwood Women's Club hid colored Easter eggs on April 14 for 40 children to find in Conboy Park. The Easter bunny was Ashley Woodward, who found a small pair of black knitted gloves. Owner can pick them up at the Shade Tree.

Seventy members of the Pioneer Memorial Community Church and the Trout Lake Baptist Church sang songs and praises at an early sunrise service. Wonderful goodies and hot refreshments were shared afterwards.
