Twenty-two Lyle ladies enjoyed their birthday luncheon this past week at Ixtapa in The Dalles. The seven gals celebrating January and February birthdays included Peggy, Betty, Marg, Marilyn, Martha, Ida, and Barbara, with one March birthday, Joan, who is wintering in Arizona. The gals talked about becoming members of the "Red Hat Society." Darla is looking into what is required to join this fun Society.
Dallesport Elementary students are hard at work on their play. So mark your calendar and plan to attend one of the two March performances. These students and their teachers do a wonderful job each year with their productions. This is a great opportunity for the students to learn the ins and outs of taking part in a public performance. More information regarding the dates, and title of the play, etc. will be in later news articles.
Find the Key and earn the prize.
Clue # 3:
I'm hanging lower than five
But higher than knee
Two junctions are near
Come and find me!
Each week a new clue will be presented, add that new clue, to last week's clue, and you will be that much closer to the hiding place. One clue each month will list the zone in which you will find the key. So stop in at the Monitor's office and pick up your Disaster Plan Zone Map, which will aide you in your quest. Each month we will give the key a new hiding place, have a new prize and all new riddles. The key will not be hidden in a place that would cause harm or endangerment to the participants! If you have any questions about this contest call MILDRED at 365-0060.
Don't miss this month's council meeting. On the agenda are two speakers -- one from Sprint and the other from the County Weed Control Department; Peyt Turner with the final presentation of Lyle's Community Disaster Plan; and our Sheriff Chris Mace to respond to your concerns and/or questions. Feb. 24 at 7 p.m. at the Lyle Lions Community Center.
There are two churches in Lyle that welcome visitors -- the Lyle United Methodist Church, 403 W Klickitat St, and Lyle Full Gospel Church, at 715 Washington St.
Lyle History: As published in the Enterprise, July 6, 1967.
Lyle Pioneer History continued, as recounted by Jesse A Jewell: "One of the cheapest ways to build was to use the existing convict labor already here. You can still see some of the results of their labor as you are leaving town by looking up above the highway, as you are, the tunnel clearance sign is just below quite an extensive bit of cement work. Rex Bullis has unearthed a culvert dated 1915. The roadbed is plainly visible from the roadside park just beyond."
