Several guests shared last weekend's Good Sam campout at Elks Meadow in Trout Lake. They were Steve and Gayle Pimley, Dave and Jan Graber, Doris Carter, Eula Smith, Jim and Kathy Brashers Jr. and children. Larry Sorensen, Delbert and Jim Brashers showed the other members how to play Beanbag baseball, which they learned at the State Samboree at Moses Lake. This weekend was a no host weekend, and was enjoyed by all who attended. August will see the group at the Lewis and Clark Park at North Bonneville.

The open house for the Lyle Volunteer Fire Department was well attended. I hope you were able to attend, see all the before, during and after pictures. A tour of the new facility was given and it is amazing how much space and how much equipment there is. The newest rescue truck was on display along with all the other rigs. Lyle is truly blessed that we have such an active group of volunteers. THANK YOU!

Mildred wants to report that wishes do come true. Within hours of the last Lyle News letter going out she had a call from Harold Wethered of Pitt with a generous donation of poppy seeds. So the project of covering the hills and dales of Lyle with poppies is definitely on its way. Thank you, Harold for getting the "Poppy" project underway.

Community Council's regular meeting will be July 26, 7 p.m. at the Lyle Lions Club. Planning for the candidates' night (Sept. 29) and the annual Chili Cook Off in the fall (we are thinking of adding a parade this year) are some of the items on the agenda. The PUD will be there. As always we encourage community participation in the meetings and projects.

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."

"Mr. Wright made his living by fishing and hunting, they were a happy and talented family. After the Grange Hall was built Mr. Wright and his son Edgar would come and play their violins for dances, and how they could play!"
