Glenwood was a happening place over the weekend!
The Glenwood School classes vied to see which grade had the most spirit leading up to Saturday's homecoming game. The Class of 2011 won Spirit Week including competitions during school assemblies; lip sync contests; and dressing up for theme days such as school colors, decades, fairy tales, super heroes and favorite teams.
The exciting week came to an end as the TLG boys and girls basketball teams took on the Bickleton Pirates in the Glenwood gym. The TLG girls came out on top of a close game with the Lady Pirates, while the TLG boys blew the Pirates out of the water.
As is tradition in Glenwood, the homecoming queen and king were revealed during halftime of the boys' game. Kenny Henderson and Mariah Smith were crowned and introduced as the 2011 GHS Homecoming King and Queen. Their princes and princesses were: Dustin Jones, Harvey Starr, Perry Wasgatt, Dakota Jones, Catherine Settler and Kaylene Tyndall. The theme for the dance following the games was "Fly Me to the Moon."
An open house in honor of Jerry and Louise Lorenz was held at the Glenwood Grange on Saturday afternoon. Louise wanted to express their gratitude to their many friends and customers for their patronage over the years; as well as to those who stopped by on Saturday. The Lorenz's have many fond memories of their years in Glenwood.
The Glenwood Rodeo Association held its annual meeting on Sunday. The agenda included coronation of 2011 Ketchum Kalf Rodeo Queen Amber Mercer, and election of officers and board members. Previous Officers were re-elected including Keith Kreps, president; Charlie Allen, vice president; and Terry Arnold, secretary/treasurer. Board members receiving a renewal nod included Keith Kreps, Bubs Murray and Mike Woodward. Plans are underway for the 77th annual Ketchum Kalf Rodeo to be held June 18 and 19.

The Class of 2011 is planning a crab feed for Monday, Feb. 7, from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at the Glenwood School. Prices for 1.5 crabs, salad, bread, dessert and beverage are $20; or chef salads with toppings, bread, beverage and dessert are $8.
