Rumor has it there was a wedding in town Saturday, July 10. Gail Castle and Ron Sorensen were married in a somewhat private ceremony at the Lyle United Methodist Church. Since this was also the bride's birthday, her mother instigated the singing of "Happy Birthday" as part of the ceremony. Congratulations to the newlyweds!
Painting and cleaning have been underway at the Lyle Fire Hall in preparation for the upcoming open house. Plan to attend July 17, 2004, from 3 to 5 p.m. See the construction and renovations that our emergency volunteers have achieved over the past few months. Enjoy the scrapbooks showing the "before, during and after pictures." Refreshments will be served. Our community can be proud of our emergency volunteers; let's show support for their accomplishments.
The repair work on the post office is almost complete. Darn, there goes the large bulletin board we were just getting used to and we still don't have a drive up window.
Community Council's regular meeting will be July 26, at 7 p.m. in the Lyle Lions Club. Planning for the candidates' night (September 29) and the annual Chili Cook Off in October (we are thinking of adding a parade this year) are some of the items on the agenda. The PUD may be there again. As always we encourage community participation in the meeting and the projects.
Community Churches are Lyle United Methodist, 403 W. Klickitat, and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.

"Other boats I remember were the Regulator and the Potter. Our mail was brought from The Dalles by boat. My brothers, George and Van Sorensen were the early mail carriers. They took the mail back to New Missouri (Appleton), Liberty Bond and Wright's Station on the Klickitat. Sometime a packhorse was required to carry the load."
Never interrupt when you are being flattered.
