Members of the Lyle Sundowners RV Club attended both Arizona and Nevada State Samboree Conventions. Jim and Eileen Brashers along with Delbert and Jean Brashers entered the Blind Drivers Rodeo and had lots of fun. The Arizona Samboree was one of the largest with over 500 RVs. Nevada was a little more laid back with only 160 rigs. The Brashers also managed to leave a little loose change in Nevada casinos. The first local get together of this year was March 11 and 12 at the Lyle Grange. April will see the group meeting at the Tygh Valley fairgrounds.

History of Lyle Cemetery, Klickitat County, Washington, as written by J.E. Smith, chairman Board of Trustees, Sept.29, 1917.
"In the meantime Mr. E.W. Jones had taken up 160 acres in homestead, which included this land. He was not favorable to releasing 20 acres as named in the certificate of incorporation. He finally gave a warranty deed from E. W. Jones and wife for 2 and 1/4 acres instead. The deed was made to the association and filed for record Dec. 2, 1903 -- Book P of Deeds page 546 -- County Auditor Goldendale, Wash."
