Lyle middle school is busy preparing for its upcoming field trip to Neah Bay, May 10-13 -- a time filled with learning and discovery. To help the cost, the students will be selling Sees candy bars and lollipops over the next few weeks. Your support is deeply appreciated; if you have any questions please contact the Lyle Middle School at 354-2211.
The students enjoyed an ice cream party Wednesday, April 12, celebrating the end of the quarter "Accelerated Reader" winners. High point receivers were first place Austin Howard, second Ben Vincent and third was Amanda Roden.
There will be a yard sale at the Lyle Celebration Center, at 7th and Washington, on Saturday, April 30, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The number of vehicles arriving to deposit their load of trash into the dumpsters for community pride seemed to be less this year. Still at the close of business on Saturday evening, four 50-yard dumpsters and over half of another had been filled. I'm always amazed at the amount of trash we see in two short days. I'm also thankful for your dedication and help in seeing that this huge amount of trash finds its way to the landfill in Roosevelt. Again this year I thank Tri-County Disposal, R.D.C. Trucking and Rabanco, Buster Warner, Bill Mello, Steve Crow, and his crew of Klickitat County young people. John Longfellow, Klickitat County Solid Waste Department printed our fliers and furnished trash bags. KPUD hung the clean up banner over Highway 14 and will also remove it. I thank Sid Slate for hauling away a full semi-trailer load of metal. Thanks to Lyle School District for letting us use a very nicely spiffed up bus yard for this year's event.
I'm proud of the LCC and also some of Lyle's citizens who are not on the council, but always ready to help. I'm proud that Jimmy Curl lets me take care of and use his cream can to collect donations at all LCC fundraisers. Terry, Darla, Barbara, Pam, Mildred, Glenda, Joyce Hutchins, Jack Bryan, and Don Brashers, Good job, well done.
LCC wants to thank this community for the generous donations of your "trash and cash." Take a deep breath and get ready for the next clean up. The second Friday and Saturday in April 2006 will be here before you know it.
There are three new businesses opening in Lyle! The entrepreneurs will be at the April 25 council meeting and will share information about their respective endeavors.
May 21 has been set for the annual Lyle-Balch Cemetery clean up, with a potluck and business meeting to follow.
Churches in Lyle are United Methodist, 403 Klickitat St, and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.
Taken from the Klickitat County Agriculturist -- "1894, Death of J. O. Lyle."
"Shortly after his arrival he rented a place at Rowena a short distance down the river from The Dalles, where he lived two years, then buying off a squaw man a farm situated on the Washington side of the Columbia River."
Do the math. Count your blessings.
