The Pioneer Memorial Community Church is offering a free movie for community members on Friday, Jan. 14. The featured show "The Tooth Fairy" will begin promptly at 7 p.m. and popcorn is included. Come enjoy this family event.
The Glenwood community learned some sad news last week. Mr. Kenny Sheridan passed away leaving his wife, Freida, and daughters JoAnn Hutton, Barbara Warren and Dannet Wheelhouse and their families. In addition to his Hereford cattle operation, Kenny had been involved with Hell Roaring Irrigation and the Glenwood Rodeo Association for many years. A memorial service is planned for Kenny on Saturday, Jan. 15 at noon at the Glenwood School. A potluck dinner will follow his funeral. Kenny will be missed; and our thoughts go out to his family in their loss.
The Glenwood School will be humming with homecoming activities from Jan. 14-22. The game to cap off the week's activities will be against the Bickleton Pirates at 4 p.m.; followed by the homecoming dance where the king and queen will be announced. Royalty reigning over the week's events include Perry Wasgatt and Mariah Smith, Kenny Henderson and Dakota Jones, Dustin Jones and Kaylene Tyndall, and Harvey Starr and Catherine Settler.
Basketball season is in full swing with the middle school team hosting Centerville on Jan. 13 before heading to Lyle on Jan. 20. The TLG high school teams travel to Toppenish on Jan. 14 and take on Sunnyside Christian at Trout Lake on Jan. 15. TLG will also host South Wasco on Jan. 18 and travel to Lyle on Jan. 21 before the homecoming game against Bickleton at Glenwood on Jan. 22. Sounds like many hours of basketball action, so plan to watch and cheer on the Glenwood middle school and the TLG high school teams!
Jan. 20 is the Ladies Bunco Night at the church beginning at 6:30. Ladies are asked to bring finger foods to share during this fun activity.
An open house is planned in honor of Jerry and Louise Lorenz on Saturday, Jan. 22. Stop by the Glenwood Grange from 1 to 4 p.m. to wish Jerry and Louise well in their retirement; and to thank them for their many years of service and support to the community of Glenwood.
Shane and Billie Jo Patterson have purchased the business from Jerry and Louise. Best wishes to the Patterson family in their new endeavor, Mountain Inn, LLC.
The Glenwood Rodeo Association has scheduled the annual meeting on Sunday, Jan. 23, at the Glenwood Grange at 1 p.m. The agenda includes election of officers; coronation of the 2011 Ketchum Kalf Queen Amber Mercer; and a silent auction to help with the queen's expenses.
Governor Chris Gregoire has proclaimed January to be School Board Recognition Month. The School Board members for Glenwood include Darrel Spies, Betsy Putnam, Harold Cole, Jay McLaughlin and Vernadean Dean. Huge thanks go to each of these volunteers who make the Glenwood School such a great place for our community children to learn and grow.
Congratulations to Mariah Smith on winning post and district Voice of Democracy contests. Mariah's essay "Does My Generation Have a Role in America's Future?" advanced her to state competition in Salem on Feb. 5. Best wishes to Mariah as she travels to Salem for that contest. Dale and Jensi Smith are Mariah's proud parents!
If you play a musical instrument (any type) and enjoy playing music with others, plan to join in the jam sessions on the fourth Thursday of each month at the church beginning at 6:30 p.m. I bet it would be fun just to sit and listen even if you don't play an instrument!
If you have news to share during January, please contact Terry at 364-3371. Thank you!
