It's that time of year again...basketball season! Tom Eldred is leading the middle school boys' team. Boys turning out for that team include Max Jacobson, Andrew McFall, Nick Palmer, Forest Putnam and Colton Troh. Lacey Masden will coach the middle school girls' team consisting of Bella Couch, Madi Couch, Bailey Gimlin, Brittany McCoy, Kinley Troh and Vicky Valdez.
The middle school team will take on Klickitat in our first home game this Thursday, Dec. 6, beginning at 5:30. Good luck Glenwood Middle School teams!
Glenwood's contribution to the TLG basketball teams include Dakota Jones and Bethany Putnam on the girls' team; and Baylee Couch, Dalton Jones, Jaylin Throop and Jonathan Throop on the boys' team. Roger Huffsmith is serving as girls' coach; while Ryan Webb is coaching the boys' team.
Becca Hallenbeck is joining the TLG cheer team under the direction of Toni Troh.
There are two games at Glenwood this season -- Dec. 4 and Jan. 19. Be sure to enjoy a winter of great basketball action as you cheer on the home-town competitors! Best wishes TLG basketball teams!
Word is that Santa will make an appearance at the Mountain Inn on Dec. 6 from 6:30 until 7:15 p.m. This will be a great opportunity for children to tell Santa what they would like for Christmas -- and for a photo op with the jolly old guy. Because Santa is such a great guy -- he'll return to Glenwood after the Christmas concert on Dec. 19 to pass out candy canes to the young people in our community. I think that makes Glenwood a pretty fortunate community to have two visits from St. Nick before Christmas!
The Scholastic Book Fair will arrive in Glenwood for a week beginning this Friday, Dec. 7. The book fair is open weekdays from 8 a.m. until 2:40 p.m. On Dec. 12, Glenwood School elementary students will read for the public in the gym. Plan to enjoy listening to our young readers. What a great opportunity to purchase books for Christmas gifts that will encourage budding readers to love to read!
While you're out at the school for the book fair on Dec. 12, why not have dinner out also? The Class of 2016 is putting on a taco dinner from 5 until 7 p.m. Cost for the all-you-can-eat dinner is $6 for adults and $3 for children.
