A candidates' night is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m. at the Glenwood Grange. Candidates will present a three-minute speech -- followed by a question and answer period. Thank you to the Glenwood Community Council for letting this event occur during their monthly meeting! As a side note -- this is a very crucial election for our state and nation.

Our condolences are extended to the Hathaway family after the recent death of their mother and grandmother, Dee. You are all in our thoughts. Mrs. Hathaway's pastor reminded me of Dee's efforts to raise funds to build their new church in Hood River. Many of you will recall Dee selling pizzas to everyone in Glenwood years ago. Her efforts helped raise money for the construction of the church she attended. Just a good example of what one person can do!

The Glenwood High School Honor Society would like to thank the community for its tremendous support of the Red Cross Blood Drive. Donors far exceeded the Red Cross target for the Oct. 4 blood drive held at the school. Thanks everyone!
