The bus, which was owned by Mr. Brlmacombe, was leased by him, to the old Glenwood School District, from 1937 to 1943. In 1943 the Glenwood School District was able to purchase It's own busses, and Mr. Brlmacombe continued to drive the board owned busses until the district was annexed to the Rossford School District. The only change that was reqqired then, was to paint Rossford where Glenwood once was, and our faithful driver continued to transport his precious load of lives each day, throughout the school year. But, alas, the faithful Mr. Brlmacombe, plans to retire after this year, and to take out the old fishing pole. Mr. Brlmacombe poses for the camera today, with a few of the children who represent the 2nd generation of students that he has transported.
