Glenwood Reunion 2020
Welcomes First Tractor Show But Where’s the Green?
Gail Brown, the Tractor Show organizer, is doing some last minute checking of all the entrants for the crowd favorite award.
Glenwood Reunion opened Friday night, August 21 with the raising of the flag and the National Anthem. Music for that evening was provided by the Kelly Sisters, who sang many of their own songs, and the multi-talented “Just Us,” who played popular 50s and 60s music mixed with some blues and country tunes. The car show was back with several crowd favorites. New this year was the Tractor Show with a mix of orange and red running down the line of tractors, representing Allis-Chalmers, International Harvester, Farmall. But no green. Not a sign of John Deere green among the orange and red!
The snack shack had plenty of tenderloin sandwiches, chips, drinks, and ice cream to cool everyone off, during the hot afternoon. The dime toss was busy, as were the playground swings and slide. Local businesses and residents provided plenty of prizes. And closing out Saturday night was music by Paige McClamroch followed by the band, Just Us.
The crowd was a little light, but everyone there had a great time. The committee is already making plans for the 150th Reunion! See you there! (For more fun photos of the Reunion, please check out pages 7 and 8.)
