Boy...what a wonderful turn out for the annual firemen's turkey dinner that was held March 16. The adverse weather apparently didn't deter many from going out to support the firemen's fundraiser. A great dinner was served: and Fire District Eight would like to thank everyone who helped and attended.
The Glenwood PTO would like to invite everyone to attend its Spring Fling 2002 on March 23 at the school. Students' art projects will be featured, refreshments will be served, raffles for some great items will be offered, and the community cookbooks will be available for sale. Come on out and enjoy the talents of our community's youth from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
I would like to recognize a few Glenwood High School graduates who are participating in college sports. Kristin Scott, 1999, and Casey Arnold, 2000, are members of the Walla Walla Warriors Rodeo Team. Kristin barrel races and breakaway ropes, while Casey ropes calves, team ropes and steer wrestles. Their season began last fall with two rodeos in eastern Oregon, and resumed the first weekend in March at their home town arena. This past weekend, they traveled to Lewiston, Idaho for a double-header. They will compete in four more rodeos this spring, with hopes of qualifying for the College Regionals in Ogden, Utah, over Memorial weekend, and College Nationals in Wyoming during June. Good luck Kristin and Casey.
Kari Steinbach, 2001, has just finished her first season with the Clark College Lady Penguins Basketball Team. Kari played post position, and her team ended up in third place in their district for junior colleges. The team played at the NWAACC tournament in the Tri-Cities the weekend of March 9, where it won the first game before losing two close games. Kari has been invited to return to Clark College next year as a team member for the Lady Penguins. Congratulations, Kari.
Remember the Glenwood Community 4-H Club will be holding a record book meeting on March 21 at 6:30 p.m. at the school.
The Glenwood Rodeo Association will be holding an important meeting on March 24 at 1 p.m. at the school. All members are encouraged to attend, as the association will be voting to amend its Articles of Incorporation.
The third quarter of the 2001/2002 school year is rapidly approaching an end, with the final day being March 27. Glenwood High School students need community service hours in order to graduate. If you have a project that could utilize some young peoples' energies, please contact the school. It will help you and the students out.
