State Sen. Jim Honeyford, among other dignitaries, will attend the Lyle Community Council's Nov. 24 meeting. They will listen to the State Ecology Department, the KCPUD and other invited guests who will be addressing the need for the new water/wastewater treatment plant for Lyle and the funding issues involved.

Each of you needs to show support for those working on your behalf in order that the KCPUD can keep your sewer rates lower.

Lyle history from the "Minutes from the Balch Ladies Aid -- June 21, 1927."
"The Balch Ladies Aid met in regular order at the home of Mrs. Knappenberg with a potluck dinner at noon. Thirteen members and friends gathered around the table and enjoyed the lovely repast spread before them. Those answering roll call by reading verse were Mrs. Knappenberg, Mrs. Freeman, Mrs. McNabb, Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Lester, Mrs. McCutcheon, Mrs. Hewett, Mrs. M. R. Hamm, and Shirley Hamm. All joined in singing 'America'."
