A big community thanks to Oren Johnson for weed eating around the Lyle Welcome signs; also, to the Lions Club for trash pickup along highway 14 between the Chamberlain Rest Area and the tunnels east of Lyle. All of this contributes to a more attractive community.
September Sundowners Campout at Beacon Rock honored Shirley Tanner. Shirley has served as the group's secretary for over 20 years, kept many scrapbooks and albums of the club. At 91, she says she is going to retire. The Brashers and the Sorensens served homemade ice cream to the many members and guests. Guests included Jim and Charlotte Pimley and Steve and Gail Pimley, plus several drop in day guests. A climb to the top of Beacon Rock was one of the highlights of the campout.

Lyle History as published in the Enterprise, July 6, 1967.
Lyle Pioneer History continuned as recounted for readers by Jesse A. Jewell: "When Lewis and Clark turned in their report to the President about being able to travel overland to the Pacific, mostly following the rivers, it created a new interest in the Oregon Territory. The report electrified the minds and fired the imagination of the adventurous -- a whole new empire to conquer, his for the taking, if only he were big enough to hold it. The slogan was: Go west, young man -- go west!
