By this time, I hope you have all dug out from the winter storm that hit our area on Jan. 19. Wow...it's been quite awhile since we were without power for more than five days. A huge thanks to the Klickitat and Benton PUD crews who worked so tirelessly to restore our power. Also thanks go out to the Klickitat County Road crews who worked to remove downed trees and snow that made the roads impassable.
The 80s -- Footloose was the theme for the 2012 Glenwood Homecoming week. After an abbreviated spirit week due to school closures, Friday was the grand finale in which TLG varsity girls and junior varsity boys defeated the Klickitat Vandals on the basketball court. Catherine Settler and Perry Wasgatt were crowned as this year's homecoming queen and king.
Following Friday night's basketball wins over the Klickitat Vandals, the TLG varsity boys and girls teams took on Yakama Tribal at Trout Lake. TLG was on a roll; and enjoyed victories in both of Saturday's games as well. Way to go TLG!
