Homesteaders, vendors crowd park
Lyle News for Oct. 4
October 02, 2012
By theThe Park was alive with activities last Saturday as the first annual NW Homesteaders Fair kicked off in grand style. Tents of vendors crowded the west end as well as the fence along Highway 14, to the baseball backstop on the SE corner where there were demonstrations of blacksmithing for the public to enjoy. A goat powered wagon gave children rides around the center of the field while vendors displayed a diverse variety of products from homegrown fruits and vegetables to handmade soaps prepared from goat milk. Various demonstrations depicted everyday life as it was in yesteryears. All in all it was a great success.

Those who did not attend the Lyle Community Council (LCC) meeting Monday, Sept. 24, missed very informative presentations from representatives of not only the Skyline Hospital concerning the First Response and Ambulance service now linking Skyline and Klickitat Valley Hospitals but also the Gorge Towns to Trails Project regarding the proposed hiking/biking trails that will link the entire gorge in years to come.
