Mildred is home from a wonderful trip. "Boy am I glad!" (Barb)
School is back in session once again. Be on the lookout for children waiting for the buses or walking to and from school. You know they are not going to be watching the streets, as they will be so excited about the new school year, etc.
The next community council will be on Sept 26. The "Meth" education night is set for Sept. 28. This will be an opportunity for you to be informed on the look, feel and damage that Meth can reap upon a user's body, the family and the community. What, where and when to seek available help, etc. The Fireman's Chili Cook Off is scheduled for October, as is a Candidates' Night. The council election will be held at the November meeting and the open positions will be announced next month.
The Lyle "Museum" is ready to take your Lyle memorabilia. Contact Terry Mills (or any other council member) if you have items to donate or if you only wish to share your photos, the museum is capable of scanning them and returning the originals to you on the spot. This project has been a life long dream of many of us in the community and is finally becoming a reality.
Churches in Lyle are United Methodist, 403 Klickitat St, and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.

"To the western home seekers and investors: To those really desirous of acquiring a very choice tract of berry, melon, fruit and vegetable land, which produces the early stuff that always commands the fancy price, and grown in site of and near town, schools and market, where almost hourly shipments can be made by water or rail to the leading markets of the Northwest, I earnestly invite you to go to Hood River, White Salmon, and The Dalles, and personally investigate the conditions and prices of those places and then come to LYLE, Wash., and I feel you will look no further."
Maybe this will jog some memories: "It's sad that almost all the old folks are gone who would call the accelerator the 'foot feed'."
