Linda and Bo Woosley are happy to announce the marriage of Tammy Lindsey to Fred Feller, son of Susie Feller and Alan and Fran Feller, all of Glenwood.
Little Liliana Rhian James was born Nov. 8 to Arlie Woodward and Don James. She weighed 7 pounds 12 ounces. Maternal grandparents are Mike and Debbie Woodward, Glenwood. Paternal grandparents are Frank and Jeanine James, Spokane. Great-grandparents are Keith and Sue Woodward, Goldendale.
Alex Ryan Dean was born Nov. 27 to Jeff and Vernadean Dean at Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital. At birth Alex weighed 6 pounds 13 ounces, and was 19.75 inches long. His big brother, Kyle, 6, is so excited to have a little brother instead of a sister; and Kyle is looking forward to teaching Alex everything he knows! Grandparents of little Alex include Jim and Lonnie Dean and Vern and MaryAnita Addington all of Glenwood, and great grandparents Jack and Mary Finn. Congratulations to the Dean family on Alex's arrival.
Basketball season is off and running. The Trout Lake/Glenwood high school teams kicked off their season by playing in a Jamboree at Klickitat High School on Nov. 29. The girls beat Lyle and lost to Klickitat, and the boys' team lost the mini competitions with Lyle and Klickitat.
The Trout Lake/Glenwood girls and boys high school basketball teams continued their competition at the Mt. Adams Shootout tournament in Trout Lake this past weekend. Friday night the girls and boys both won their first-round games against Christian Faith teams from the SeaTac area. Saturday evening both teams played in the championship bracket. The girls defeated Horizon Christian from Hood River; and the boys came out on top of Vancouver Christian to keep the championship trophies at home. The Glenwood girls who played in the Mt. Adams Shootout tournament included Amy Keithly, Julia LaVallie and Dave'y Lumley; they were coached by Bo Arnold. Anthony Settler and Tygh Schuster from Glenwood played on the boys' team, and they were coached by Steve Allaway.
Well, we have snow on the ground and basketball season has officially begun. So even though the calendar says it is still fall, it seems close enough to call it winter to me. Be sure to remember to allow extra time for icy roads when traveling. The Klickitat County Road Department has done a great job of keeping our roads drivable during this early snow, so be sure to thank the men when you see them.
Recently Duane Gahimer led a campaign in the Glenwood area known as Operation Christmas Child. The program is arranged through the Samaritan's Purse organization, and seeks Christmas gifts (whatever will fit in a regular shoebox) for under-privileged children. Gifts were sought for boys and girls from two to fourteen years of age. Generous community members from the Glenwood area contributed 42 holiday-wrapped shoeboxes for the program. The gift boxes were forwarded to Samaritan's Purse headquarters in North Carolina for distribution to children world-wide. Thank you to everyone who supported this annual project.
Remember to stop by the school to check out the Scholastic Book Fair in the library until Dec. 14 from 8 a.m. through 2:40 p.m. weekdays. This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase books for childrens' gifts. While you're at the school, remember to support the community food drive. Food items will be collected until Dec. 15 for distribution in community food baskets.
In keeping with the holiday spirit, the all-school Christmas program will be held on Dec. 13 at 7 p.m.
Santa will pass out candy canes to the little ones after the program; and the Glenwood Homemakers will serve cookies and hot cocoa to the community.
Just thinking of several friends and neighbors who are not feeling well: Lester Blair, Dennis Humphrey, Donna Montgomery, and Steve Wilkens. We hope you are all feeling better soon!
