March has come in like a lamb. Does this really mean it will go out like a lion? Let's hope not!
Mark your calendars for March 16 -- cooking dinner and cleaning up afterwards are off your list that evening. Instead, come down to the school for the Firemen's Benefit Dinner. This annual event is a major fundraiser for the fire department to purchase and update needed equipment. For $6 adults and $4 kids 12 and under, enjoy all the turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, cranberry sauce, drink and dessert you can find room for. Dinner will be served from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. If you'd like to help with the dinner, please call Carol Guinn at 364-3443.
Do you have any family favorite recipes you'd like to share? The PTO would love to publish them in the Community Cookbook. Recipes can be in any category, and there's no limit on the number you can submit. Mail or deliver your recipes to the school before March 23.
Did you know that 2002 (or, more accurately, Feb. 12, 2002 through Jan. 31, 2003) is the Year of the Horse? In Chinese astrology, it is believed that the events of the years are affected by cosmic influences in a 12-year cycle linked to Jupiter's orbit around the Sun. The Horse Year is predicted to be a lively and high-spirited year for all. Life will be hectic and punctuated with adventures. People will find themselves reckless, romantic and carefree. Decisions and projects will be incorporated at high speed and with efficiency. Action will be the key work.
Sounds like a fun and "interesting" year!

For those interested in obtaining a Type II Driver License, a training class will be held at the school on March 14 from 6 to 9 p.m. Please call the school to sign up.
The Glenwood High School Rodeo Club will be selling oranges and grapefruit again.

Thank you for your support of the first campaign -- the club sold 100 cases of fruit.
Please call Terry Arnold, 364-3371, if you have news to report during the month of March. Thanks!
