Many from Lyle enjoyed the Senior Picnic at Maryhill State Park this past Friday. The annual picnic honors volunteers each year who have contributed many hours to the county's Senior Program. Congratulations to Jim and Alice Mattox who were recipients of two awards this year.
Next Lyle Community Council meeting is Monday, Sept. 27, 7 P.M. Plan to attend this meeting; get involved in the projects the council is working on.
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.
The council sponsored Annual Chili Cook Off will be held on Saturday, Oct. 30. This year we hope to add a parade, games and contests for children. Halloween being the next day, children (of all ages) should plan to come in costume, as there is a rumor of rewards for the best costumes as well as many other surprises. And there's a hope that the future museum door will be open where the community can share ideas, information or items they would like to see in a Lyle History display. Please come forth and volunteer to be on the required museum board, or participate in one or more of the many hours needed to accomplish the goal of a museum for Lyle. Bring your history memorabilia or items you care to donate.
Council elections will take place at the November meeting, which will be held Monday, Nov. 29. This date change is due to the Thanksgiving holiday.
Community churches are Lyle United Methodist, 403 W Klickitat St., and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.

"William Oneil, who recently celebrated his 90th birthday, is still active and helpful in all community affairs. He is regarded as part of the Lyle community, though he has lived at Dallesport for a number of years. His son Crocket is widely known as Tip Oneil, master road builder, and we are very proud of him. He was one of the boys who went to school with us in the one-room schoolhouse. He has built a beautiful home at Dallesport on the old Curtis place."
