Kelly Link was treated to a lovely bridal shower at Lonnie Dean's home on Aug. 7. The future Mrs. Travis Miller received many nice gifts for their home. Best wishes are extended to Travis and Kelly who will be married on Sept. 10!
Boy, oh boy...the summer has flown by as evidenced by the rapidly approaching Klickitat County Fair next week, Aug. 24-28. 4-Hers are busy preparing their livestock projects for showmanship and market classes. This year, the Mt. Adams Community 4-H Club has four youngsters taking steers: Whitney Feller, Angel Murillo, Jaylin Throop and Jonathon Throop. The pig club has 11 members including Baylee Couch, Bella Couch, Madi Couch, Kaylee Feller, Dakota Jones, Dalton Jones, Dustin Jones, Richard Slawson, Colton Troh, Kinley Troh and Vicky Valdez.
As in the past, the Glenwood 4-H Market Sale coordinators are seeking donations to help support the Mt. Adams Community 4-Hers at the Klickitat County 4-H auction. If you are interested in donating to this worthwhile program, please contact Roxie Clemmer at 364-3539 before the fair; or Harry Miller and Margaret Throop at the fair. Many of the 4-Hers taking livestock projects count on proceeds from the sale of their market animals to supplement their college educations. So supporting the Glenwood 4-H Market Sale is a great contribution to the future of these young people!
On July 31, the Glenwood Rodeo Association put on the annual Family Fun Day. This year's event was well attended with about 40 contestants. Contestants competed in barrel racing, pole bending, keyhole race, Figure 8 and dollar bill races. The top three in each age division were: pee wees -- Francis Wells, Mikala Gutierrez, and Kinley Troh; juniors -- Emma Wells, Callista Howell and Nicole Oldfield; seniors -- Amelia Tyndall, Casey Chambers and Lauren Hoodenpyl and Dakota Jones (tied for third place); adults -- Jackie Miller, Rachael Cameron and Paige Wells. Thank you to everyone who worked and competed at the 2011 Family Fun Day!
The recycling bins were removed from the Glenwood School property in recent weeks due to dumping of non-recyclable trash in the bins. The Klickitat County Solid Waste Department recently contacted the Community Council and expressed interest in returning the bins to Glenwood if the community can increase its vigilance of the bins and keep trash out of them. Please make sure that only recyclable items are placed in these bins and if you see something that should not be there, please remove or inform the school. If not, this service will be lost indefinitely.
