The Glenwood PTO would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the volunteers who made this year's Halloween Carnival and Haunted House a success. Thanks to the many hours of your time and the dedication of all the children of our community, everybody that attended had a hauntingly good time! Thanks again! We couldn't have done it without you.
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Chris Gimlin on the arrival of their son, Derrick Christopher, on Oct. 25. He weighed in at 4 pounds 6 ounces and was 18 inches long. Derrick is still in the hospital in Yakima and hopes to be home soon.

The exchanging of information and ideas with other fairs throughout the state of Washington and other visiting delegates was of real value.
