Guest speakers at the LCAC Meeting on Jan. 27 were Anita Payne from The Dalles Chamber of Commerce and Marie Davis from the Klickitat Community Council. Anita spoke on the Lewis and Clark Commemoration. She expressed the many opportunities for communities to work together in preparation of local Lewis and Clark Celebrations. The Dalles CC has a web site on which she offered to post any future events these communities host, such as Lyle's Pioneer Days and Klickitat's Annual Yard Sale. Marie extended an invitation to the Lyle Council to join with the Klickitat Council in working on ideas for our communities to share, in the Lewis and Clark Commemoration. Marie also asked Lyle to join with Klickitat in their aforementioned annual community yard sale. The council unanimously voted to link with Klickitat for this event. Watch for dates, and sign up information. The two communities should be able to generate some vast advertising and bring avid "yard salers" from near and far!

Just a reminder:

Pioneer Days are back: Memorial Day Weekend 2003 the Man in the Black Hat needs volunteers!

Lyle Community Action Council meets the 4th Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at the Lyle Lions Community Center.

Lyle History: As published in the Enterprise, July 6, 1967.

Lyle Pioneer History continued, as recounted by Jesse A Jewell: "The Swift & Company built the sheep sheds when cattle and sheep ranches both flourished in the county. They brought sheep in from off the range in the fall to fatten through the winter for any early spring market. At first there were two sheds but one winter the snowfall became so heavy one shed collapsed and it was never rebuilt. It is reported that they fed as many as 20 to 25 a winter."

A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel sooooooooo goooooooood!
