One week off for good behavior...and look at all the news we came up with!
Jan. 25 brought a big surprise for Lorene Ladiges. Thirty-eight family members, including Jolene Chandler from Jacksonville, Fla., got together for a surprise 85th birthday party for Mrs. Ladiges. Lorene's children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews met at Kathleen and Manuel Pinheiro's home in The Dalles for the family get-together. Everyone enjoyed the party and Lorene's great stories! Happy birthday, Lorene!
The Glenwood students just completed the mid-point in this school year. The following youngsters were named to the honor roll as of the end of the first semester: seniors Krista Hansen and Neola Putnam; juniors Audrey Hill, Brian Langfield and Julia LaVallie; sophomores Dustin Jones, Mariah Smith and Kaylene Tyndall; freshman Jake Keithly; seventh grader Jonathan Throop; sixth graders Greg Dechand, Mary Jorgensen and Tiffany McCoy. Congratulations to each of the students for the recognition of their hard work.
After a week full of dressing for themes such as pajama day, Mardi Gras day, southern day, crazy hair/clash day and school color/unity day and special activities the junior class was deemed to be the winners of the spirit week competitions. On Friday evening the traditional bonfire was torched; followed on Saturday by the homecoming game, coronation and dance. Trout Lake/Glenwood took on Yakama Tribal in Glenwood's gym before a full-house of basketball fans. The girls furthered their cause with another win; while the boys lost to a team that was tough on three-point shots. The Homecoming Court including Krista Hansen, Amy Keithly, Julia LaVallie, Neola Putnam, Dustin Jones, Jake Keithly, Brian Langfield and Tygh Schuster, was introduced at half time of the boys' game. The honorary crown carriers were Madi Couch, Bailey Gimlin, Brittany McCoy and Kinley Troh. King Jake Keithly and Queen Neola Putnam were crowned by Tim Kuhnhausen and Dave'y Lumley before the basketball action resumed. The homecoming dance featured music by a live band after the basketball games.
The TLG basketball teams will travel to Sunnyside Christian's gym for the last of their regular season play on Feb. 7. District competition will begin in Zillah on Feb. 13th. Best wishes to both teams as they complete their regular season schedule.
A pee wee basketball tournament will be held in Glenwood on Feb. 7 beginning at 9 a.m. Local hoopsters from pre-school through fourth grades will hit the court in tournament competition against Klickitat's young ball players. JaeCee Hoctor and Sara McFall are coaching the pee wee players from Glenwood. Plan to come out and enjoy the chance to watch our future basketball stars!
