The Glenwood Rotary Club recently made a donation to the Glenwood Pickleball project. Shown accepting the check from Rotary members is Dr. Jacque Young, one of the committee members for the project. The project entails converting the south Vine St. tennis courts into six Pickleball courts for use by the public. Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the Metro as well as nationwide, and can be played by people of all ages.
