After many years of absence, the large tree in the center of Glenwood has been lighted again with Christmas lights. It is truly a beautiful sight. A thank you for reviving this tradition goes to the 21st Century Grant folks. The coordinator is Jensi Smith and program assistant is Rachel Throop. The entire community can enjoy their work and that of all the volunteers that helped make this happen. Thank you very much.
The Glenwood Homemakers had its annual Christmas party at the home of Rachel Throop on Wednesday, Dec. 12. Rachel's home was decorated very nice and everyone had a great time. Lonnie Dean and Darlene Humphrey organized some games for the party, which was a lot of fun. Thank you Rachel for the hospitality and thank you to Lonnie and Darlene for the entertainment.
The senior class at Glenwood School sponsored a Snow Ball Formal Dance on Friday, Dec. 14. Students elected a court for the dance. Princesses included Jenna Dean, Jennifer Harter, Kortni Kamp, Sarah LaVallie and Leslie Steinbach. Princes were Jeremy Ballard, Jerrit Kuhnhausen, Travis Miller, Joshua Smith and Bron Tomeo. Congratulations to Miss Jenna Dean crowned queen and to Mr. Joshua Smith crowned King. All the students had a nice time.
The annual food drive ends this week. The Glenwood School students have been working hard collecting food. The different classes compete with each other for the top collection percentages. Anyone wishing to contribute to the food drive can do so at the school or the Glenwood Community Church. The food will be distributed to Glenwood families by the church at the end of the week.
There are high school basketball games both Friday and Saturday nights this week. Sunnyside Christian will be playing in Glenwood on Friday night and then our girls and boys teams will travel to Cascade Locks on Saturday to play. These are the last games until after the Christmas break. School will let out for the Christmas break at 1 p.m. on Friday and then resumes after the holidays on Jan. 2.
The Glenwood Homemakers would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year!
