Visitors from Higginsville, Mo., were in Lyle this past weekend. Dennis and Geri Stewart are trekking from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. Most of the trip will follow the Lewis and Clark Trail. They attended Sunday Service at the Methodist Church giving testimony of the way the Lord has helped them along their way. The congregation shared their potluck dinner and Dennis entertained with several hymns on his harmonica.

Family and friends joined Larry and Mary Sorensen in their open house on Saturday. Over 50 guests came from as far away as Seattle to Grants Pass. They were celebrating the Sorensen's new home at Dallesport and enjoyed a family reunion. Their nephew Ron Cox will be in town for a few days to help them build a deck onto the back of their home.

The Lyle-Balch Cemetery clean up will be held May 22, beginning at 8:30 a.m. Let's all work together to get the cemetery spruced up in honor of our loved ones for Memorial Day. A noon potluck will be held at the Grange followed by the annual cemetery business meeting.

Your June calendar should be marked for the Annual 13 mile Yard Sale. The date has been set for Saturday, June 12. Call Joy Collins at 365-5102 if you want the location of your yard sale included on the map.

Community churches are Lyle United Methodist, 403 W Klickitat St., and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.

History -- Lyle Cemetery, Klickitat County, Lyle, and Washington, as written by J.E. Smith, chairman Board of Trustees. Sept.29, 1917.

"Mr. Jones sold his deed land shortly after this and relinquished his homestead in favor of Mrs. Armstrong a widow who relinquished it soon after in favor of Ralph S. Hood, who knew of the cemetery being located on this land prior to his purchase of the relinquishment. Mr. Hood complicated his entry by purchase from the Government at $1.25 an acre, and had as his witness at the land office two of the charter members of the Cemetery Association. Mr. Lyle and Mr. C. Hall who failed to recollect about the location of the cemetery there."
