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 are adding a parade. 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. For entry information contact Mindy at the Full Throttle Coffee Shop. We plan to have the museum doors open to the community so you can share ideas, information or items you 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 this museum. Bring your history, memorabilia or items you might 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.
Darla has declared for position #1. Position #2 has no declared candidates at this point. If you are interested in running for a position on the council plan to come to the meeting on Sept. 27 to declare. Candidates must declare by Sept. 30.
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."
"Garver Castle moved from Glenwood some years ago and bought the old John Olson place, which was owned by the Strattons. Mrs. Castle has been active in the church and also has taught school here for several years, so they have contributed much to Lyle. Their son, John, is carrying on with the farming operations. Their daughter, Betty, has her home in The Dalles, where she is employed."
I've learned that everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile.
