The Glenwood Rodeo Association put on its annual poker ride on Oct. 9. Inclement weather dampened the turnout, but a good time was had by those who participated. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward construction of a kitchen in the dance hall.
The Glenwood Cemetery District put on its yearly dinner on Sunday, Oct. 10. The delicious turkey dinner with all the trimmings was enjoyed by 199 guests. The fundraiser helps support the upkeep of the Glenwood Cemetery. The Cemetery Board would like to thank everyone who helped with the meal, those who supported the benefit by attending the dinner, and those who made cash donations. The Cemetery District would also like to thank the anonymous donor who made a very generous cash gift to go toward drilling a well at the cemetery. Just a reminder that the Cemetery Board will meet at the Grange Hall Wednesday, Oct. 20, at 7 p.m.
Remember to save your General Mills box tops and Campbell's soup labels for the school. As in past years, our school district can cash in cereal box tops and soup labels for equipment. Collection boxes are located at the Big "C" Grocery, Shade Tree Inn, and the Glenwood School.
The senior class would like to thank the community for its support of the Free Woodcutting Weekend on The Campbell Group's forest land Oct. 9 and 10. Also a special thanks to The Campbell Group for donating the firewood and to Nate Putnam, Dave Wasgatt and Debbie Woodward for their coordination of the fundraiser for the seniors.
We would like to wish Jan Gimlin a speedy recovery after her recent surgery.
Please note that the flu clinic that was scheduled for Oct. 27 has been canceled due to the recent cutback in the availability of flu vaccine. Those wishing to receive flu shots should contact their doctor or attend the Health Fair to be held in White Salmon Oct. 29 at the Park Center from 7:30 to 11 a.m.
National 4-H week was Oct. 4 through 9. Taunie Shupe prepared a display of projects at the school in recognition of the special week. The exhibit included projects made by local 4-Hers during the past year.
The Glenwood Community Leaders and 4-H Clubs will meet Wednesday, Oct. 20, at the school. Leaders will meet at 6 followed by the 4-H club at 7 p.m. The agenda will include electing officers, voting on the proposed 4-H policy, and making plans for Achievement Night.

Remember to come out and support our local athletes. Glenwood's junior high volleyball team will play at home Oct. 14 and 18 at 5 p.m. The high school volleyball team will be on the road Oct. 15 at Bickleton, and Oct. 19 at Lyle. If you are a football fan, cheer on Mitch Wheelhouse as he plays on the Columbia High School varsity team. Their next home game is in White Salmon on Oct. 15.
Oops. Last week a list of Glenwood High School alumni who are attending college was reported. A couple of GHS grads were unintentionally missed. Our apologies to Marlena Shupe, who is in her fourth year of college. She currently attends Heritage College in Toppenish. Third-year college student, Travis Miller is attending Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, Ore.
