The Glenwood Middle School volleyball team finished up its season of play in a tournament at Klickitat on Wednesday. The young team tied for second place in league this year. You may recall the middle school netters completed last season in second place as well. Coach Julie Brazil's talented line up consists of Katrina Garcia-Chubb, Dakota Jones, Mary Jorgensen, Tiffany McCoy, Leah Peterson and Catherine Settler. Congratulations to each of you on another successful volleyball season.
Scary stuff will be happening in the halls and multipurpose room of the Glenwood School on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 6 to 8 p.m. The annual Halloween Carnival will be offering an evening of fun for community members and guests who want to try their hand at carnival games or brave a trip through the haunted house. A costume contest will be judged at 6:30 with age divisions of kindergarten and younger, first through third, fourth through sixth, seventh and eight grades, and high school. A special prize will be awarded to the winner of each age group and treats will be presented to all costume contest entrants.
Each class is responsible for building a theme booth that offers an activity. The three classes who are deemed to have the "best booths" will receive case awards for their treasuries. While the class with the very best booth will have its class year inscribed on the coveted Skeleton Trophy in the award case. The PTO will be offering pizza by the slice and caramel apples for sale. Make plans to come out for an evening of frightful entertainment and treats at the Glenwood School on Saturday.

Jeannie and Trish Kuhnhausen held a baby shower for Shelly (Kuhnhausen) Knopsnyder on Sunday, Oct. 21. Shelly and her husband, Brandon, are expecting their first child in early December. Shelly received many wonderful gifts at the shower to help her prepare for the arrival of the baby.
A few new sights have appeared around Glenwood recently. Roger and Trish Kuhnhausen took delivery of their new home the day before Mike and Debbie Woodward's home arrived a few weeks ago. AJ and Davina Feller's home and shop construction are also changing the landscape along the BZ-Glenwood Highway. The Glenwood General Store is sporting a brand-spanking new roof too. Watching the construction has added interest in addition to the beautiful leaves this fall.
A longtime community member, Mary Mullin, just traveled south for the winter. We wish Mary well as she leaves the Glenwood area.
