More school trophies have been unearthed from storage. The Lyle Alumni Association is taking donations to build a new trophy case at the high school. Martin Huffman, principal, and George Cooper, from the Alumni Association, are working together to salvage the forgotten history these trophies represent. If you would like to become involved please contact George at 767-4333 and let him know how you can help. Many yearbooks from past years were also found and may be put into the school library or on display.
Maude Gibbs was admitted to Skyline Hospital last week. She is on the mend and would love to receive cards from friends.
Another former Lyle resident has returned. Mildred Lykens' sister Joyce Iman has moved from Carson; she will share Mildred's home and the two of them are making plans for some fun times and new beginnings.

The stuff you have gathered
To leave you know where
You can take it away
Or you can share

Lyle history taken from the Ruralite January 1980 -- "Still Having fun!" Story by M.V. Frank Morgan.
"In mid-May the Shipley's hosted 60 square-dance friends from Hood River, The Dalles and Carson square-dance groups for a weekend "camp-out" at Skyline Ranch. Included, naturally, was an evening of square dancing in the little old Appleton school building not far from the old log dance hall built in pioneer days."
"It's really great to feel that now we can take time off to do more things we enjoy", Blair comments, "like once or twice a week. In fact, we even went to a square dancing and Peach Festival in Pentiction, Canada in August. That was really fun!"
"Actually finding something fun to do has never been a problem for the Shippeys. They still enjoy doing the ranch work together. Blair does the combining and Dorothy trucks the wheat down the twisting gravel road to the grain elevators in The Dalles. "She's a good driver!" beams Blair. 'And she's OK pulling the hay baler when I cut our hay too'!"
Remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
