It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas -- like -- maybe in Phoenix!?! Well, we may not have snow in the valley yet, but the Christmas lights are sure pretty. What a treat to drive back into the valley after dark and to see the pretty lights on buildings and trees. Kinda, sorta helps to make a person think Christmas is coming! Thanks to everyone who has gone to the effort to show their Christmas spirit!
The ladies are meeting at the Pioneer Memorial Church Wednesday mornings at 10 to work on craft projects. Community members are invited to bring their projects to work on and to enjoy hot coffee and visiting. The task for Dec. 17 will be to put together cookie plates for our community senior citizens! Please contact Leona Garner at 364-9424 if you have questions about the craft get-togethers.
Remember to support our annual community food drive. You can take your donations to either the school office or the church kitchen by Dec. 18.
The book fair at the school will continue until Dec. 18. What a great way to encourage youngsters to read -- by giving books for Christmas!
The Glenwood Junior High boys basketball team kicked off its season play against Lyle's Cougars. Lyle came out on top of the first of two games for this season, but watch out next time Lyle! The junior high teams will travel to Centerville for some action on the court beginning at 5 p.m. on Dec. 11.
The TLG boys and girls basketball teams played in the annual Mt. Adams Shootout tournament in Trout Lake last Friday and Saturday. The boys and girls both played Arlington in the first round of competition and came up with wins. In the championship games on Saturday, the TLG girls defeated Lyle, while Lyle's boys were ahead at the buzzer. We've got high school basketball competition in the Glenwood gym this Thursday, Dec. 11, against Horizon beginning at 6 p.m. Come on out and enjoy basketball competition on our home court!
The community council is looking for people with fresh new ideas and a lot of energy to become a part of the council. The next meeting will be Dec. 16 at the Grange. Please support our community council by becoming involved.
Our condolences go out to the Hoodenpyl family after the recent passing of their mother and grandmother, Laura Costanzo.
Darold Ward, master of Glenwood Grange, announced the meetings of December through February have been postponed until March 2009.
The officers for the new year will be installed then. The grange is still collecting postage stamps that are trimmed leaving 1/8" around the stamp so as not to damage them. Also eyeglasses.
The Glenwood Women's Club is still hosting bingo on the first Friday of each month starting at 7 p.m. with snacks. Also pinochle get-togethers on the other Friday evenings.
If you have news to share in December, please contact Terry at 364-3371. Thanks!
