The Pretenders, a local theater group, will be performing Neil Simon's "Rumors" and dinner theater at the Lyle Grange Hall on Dec. 28 and 29.
Dinner is a choice of prime rib or chicken cordon bleu followed by a sinful dessert.
The Pretenders originated in the '90's and performed seven plays. After a six-year hiatus, they are back in top form offering the perfect opportunity to experience small town theater at an affordable price.
Advanced reservations are required. Tickets are available at the Lyle Cafe or from any Pretender member.
For more information, call Gail Farris at 509-776-4070 or Diane Howard 365-3721.
We need to make a correction as it has been called a Tim Kelley play in all publicity when in reality it is a Neil Simon play. We apologize for the mistake.
The winners of the Lyle Christmas Lighting Contest are as follows: Powells are first place and Veesons are third and both are on Columbia Drive. Trospers on Washington took second place and Huffmans on Spokane were fourth. Prizes donated by local merchants were first place two dinners at the Lyle Cafe, second place multiple video rental from the Lyle Merc, third and fourth places were gift certificates from the Lyle Hotel and R&K Auto.
Thanks to all the merchants for their support and thanks to all the residents for the beautiful decorations. Lyle looks so festive at this time of the year and represents the season we are celebrating.
The Lyle United Methodist Church will host a Christmas Eve service beginning at 7 p.m. Singing of Christmas carols and the lighting of candles will be the theme of the evening. Every one is welcome to come and share in the celebration of the birth of Christ.
At the Community Council meeting on Dec. 10, the Christmas decorations were judged and winners announced. Plans were presented for the Lyle Community Action Council's Annual Chili Cook-off Challenge to be held on St. Patrick's Day.
Watch this column, or better yet, attend our meetings for more information on this and other upcoming events. We have lots planned for the coming year and would like to share them with you.
The council elected its new officers for the coming year: Barbara Sexton is chairman, Terry Mills, vice-chair, and Glenda Lovejoy remains secretary/treasurer. The next meeting will be Jan. 28.
Lyle History: From a book titled "History of Klickitat County" 1982, published by Klickitat Historical Society.
Records do not show how this dispute was finally settled. Apparently, Mr. Jones' warranty deed was deemed valid, or the association paid the demanded $100.00, as there is no further mention made.
Originally, ownership of lots was given for payment of .25 annual membership dues. This custom led to complications, and the method was finally abandoned. However, the problem still remains, with uncertain titles to many almost unused plots for which as little as .25 has been paid.
Joy and Barbara wish you all the very best Holidays ever and look forward to continuing this column in the New Year. Until then we will take a break. Thanks for your support
