What a blessing for the much-needed rain. Isn't it nice that God waters our yards once in a while for free! Now if we could just get some volunteers to help with the "Poppy Project!" Lots of weeding around personal properties would be useful, perhaps hoeing up the weeds in preparation for the seeding?? We have seeds to start the project and we can go from there. Let us know when you have your property readied and we will come with the seeds. Actually later in the fall would be a perfect time, but if you have an area ready and can keep the seeds watered until they take root, let's do it!
Several Lyle residents took part Saturday in the Historical Homes Tour in Bingen and White Salmon. The Gorge Heritage Museum hosted the event and it was a very informative and interesting day.
Many from Lyle also enjoyed the county fair in Goldendale this past week, both as participants and spectators. Being served dinner by our local politicians, watching the 4-H'ers work their animals and admiring the many exhibits were just some of the highlights.
The Primary Election will be here in less than a month. The Community Council will host a candidates' night on Sept. 29, for the general election. This will give you the opportunity to take advantage of getting to know the candidates so you can place an educated vote.
Community churches are Lyle United Methodist, 403 W Klickitat St., and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.
As printed in The Goldendale Sentinel in 1960 and reprinted with their permission: "Lyle Early Days outlined by Historical Society author's note. The following account of early Lyle history was presented by Mrs. Kamma Sorensen Clark at the Klickitat County Historical Society meeting at Columbia Grange Hall, Lyle, Jan. 16."
"Leslie Boni is also a pioneer in Lyle and has been a Granger for years. He also was very helpful in the Church for many years. The Cimmiyottis also belonged to the Grange here, while they live at Klickitat Heights; they have been active and helpful here. Vic and Albert Johnson, on Fisher Hill, also. The Hyltons and Oneils, the Castle and Sorensen families were among the early settlers."
There is no key to happiness. The door is always open.
