WAY TO GO TLG VOLLEYBALL TEAM! The combined Trout Lake and Glenwood ladies had an outstanding day in district competition at Goldendale last Saturday. District play requires a team to win the best 3 of 5 games in order to win the match. In the first round of competition, TLG beat the Bickleton Pirates in only 4 games before advancing to the championship round against the Klickitat Vandals. In that round the TLG ladies came out on top in only 4 games as well, and were named winners of the 2009 District Tournament!
As first and second place finishers at districts, both TLG and Klickitat have qualified for the state tournament to be held in the Sun Dome at Yakima next weekend. State titles will be determined in Yakima for the 1B, 2B and 1A levels. At state competition, the matches are determined by the best 2 of 3 games. TLG will take on the Kingsway Christians at 9 a.m. Friday, Nov. 13, in the first round. They will continue play on Saturday in the double elimination format. Best wishes for a great state tournament, TLG ladies!
Glenwood's contribution to the TLG volleyball team is Coach Bo Arnold, varsity players Dakota Jones and Julia LaVallie, and JV player Katrina Garcia-Chubb. A rooter bus has been organized for the trip to Yakima on Friday. If you would like to go cheer for the TLG team, contact the school for rooter bus details, and to sign up for a ride. The bus is scheduled to leave at 6:30 a.m. Friday. All-day-tournament tickets are $9 for adults and $7 for senior citizens and students. All-tournament tickets are available for $15 for adults and $10 for seniors and students.
I just had the most awesome opportunity. Mrs. Ann Beveridge had telephoned and left a message last week to give her a call about a news item. When I returned her call today, dear Ann, who suffered a stroke earlier this fall, reported that she is home and recuperating with the help of her family, friends and physical therapist. You may see Mrs. Beveridge out along the Mt. Adams Highway strolling along with her walker; or again be the recipient of her knitting projects or delicious cookies.
Mrs. Beveridge was treated for her stroke at the Mid Columbia Medical Center's Rehab Center in The Dalles; and reported what a wonderful facility it is! She is determined to recover from the stroke -- and sounds like she is on her way! Both Bob and Ann would like to thank their neighbors and friends for their prayers, cards and well wishes. She reminded me again what a wonderful town we live in. In my opinion it is people like Mr. and Mrs. Bob Beveridge who help make our town such a wonderful place. Best wishes to you both; and thank you for the inspiring telephone conversation!
Duane Gahimer would like to thank the community for its response to the annual Operation Christmas Child campaign. Operation Christmas Child seeks gifts that will fit into a shoebox for underprivileged children around the world. Duane will be delivering the donated boxes to White Salmon on Saturday, Nov. 14, to be sent off to the Samaritan’s Purse distribution center. So if you haven't filled up a gift box yet, and would like to -- you still have time. Duane said he would even pick up the box if you can't deliver it to the parsonage or church before Saturday. Mr. Gahimer's phone is 364-3501.
Just a reminder that Klickitat County Economic Development Authority grant applications are due into the community council on Tuesday, Nov. 17, at 7 p.m.
We were glad to receive the news that Cessy Arquette is home from OHSU now. Best wishes for a complete recovery, Cessy!
Please call Terry at 364-3371 if you have news items to share. Thanks!
