If you ever attended or wanted to attend the Lyle United Methodist Church you are invited to its centennial celebration on Sunday, Sept. 26.

The service starting at 10:30 a.m. will be mostly music and sharing of the church's history. Everyone is invited to this service.

The community council will host a candidates' night on Sept. 29, for the general election.
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.
The council sponsored annual Chili Cook Off will be held on Saturday, Oct. 30. This year, we are adding a parade.
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.
Were you one of the thousands (more or less) who enjoyed the wind and rain last Friday night? Willie Nelson had to be the biggest draw to the Gorge in years. Maryhill Winery hosted the concert and we both were very impressed with the speed and order of gaining entrance into the amptheater. Just goes to show what can be done with good organization. The weather cannot detour the loyalty of a Country Western fan!
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."
"Two of Van Sorensen's sons reside here, Harold at Dallesport and Kenneth at Lyle. Both have families, Harold a son and two daughters and Kenneth two daughters and three sons, so the name is likely to linger here for some time."
"Pioneers of later date are the Niblocks, Mrs. West, the Jameses, Mrs. Dessie Hewett, Mrs. Forest Hewett, Sauters, and others."
I've learned that the less time I have to work with, the more things I get done.
