Wearing their beautiful (and what a variety) Red Hats, 26 Lyle ladies took over the party room of the Ixtapa restaurant last week. The occasion was to celebrate birthdays for Mary, Alice and Shannon. Those attending were heard to be planning many more "Red Hat" events in the near future.
The 13-mile yard sale was held this past Saturday. Spanning from Lyle to Klickitat the road was dotted with sale signs. I'm sure that the bargain hunters were out bright and early. Were you one of them and did you find the deal of your life?
Plan to attend the Community Council meeting on June 23 at the Lyle Lions Community Center at 7 p.m. Some of the items on the agenda will be -- final adoption of the updated by-laws; reports on the communities' yard sales; the PUD workshop; and an Update on the Annual Chili Cook-Off plans. We also need ideas from as many as possible for the EDA grant this year. Liz Kinne will speak on outreach/education program that Klickitat has adopted. It is called Stream Stewards.

Lyle History: As published in The Enterprise, July 6, 1967
"The boat was late in departure but did get all but two of the porkers on board, the river got the other two. Bryd wrote, 'you can imagine what the deck hands were saying'. The Grange Hall up on the hill has quite a distinction in that it is the oldest that has been in continuous use in the State, in fact it was built before we even had a State. The Grange was organized in 1889, the Hall was dedicated in 1891 so must have been built before then. They had a charter when this was still the Oregon Territory. Changes have been made on the interior but the exterior is the same as when it was built, all but for adding a small section. This was one of the main meeting places for the early settlers so is very dear to many of them."
The Main Library at Indiana University sinks over an inch every year because when it was built, the engineers failed to take into account the weight of all the books that would occupy the building.
