Had a call from Don Smith, asking us to let you know that the meetings of the Lyle, Klickitat, and Wishram Football Booster Club will be held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, at 6 p.m. in the LHS Multipurpose Room. Their mission statement is "to assist the Lyle-Klickitat-Wishram School and Varsity Football teams to raise, deposit, manage and disburse funds for projects or activities, but not limited to equipment needs, football camp scholarships, awards, as well as assist with the planning of events and activities as needed."
Soon you will be receiving a questionnaire from the PUD regarding "standby fees" for hookups that are not currently in use. Please read and fill this out so that the PUD and the council have your input before decisions are made. The more responses the better the representation. The council does not want to make this decision for the community, and prefers that the community give its own voice. If you have questions call the PUD for clarifications.
By attending council meetings on the 3rd Monday of each month, at 7 p.m., at the Lion's Club, you will find these are agenda items facing the council. By not attending you often leave decisions like this to be made without any community input!
Churches in Lyle are Lyle United Methodist, 403 Klickitat St, and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.
Taken from the Ruralite January 1974 -- "Life: Good in Lyle."
"Marshall & Lillian Hamm are a husband and wife business team and in 1969 their son Bill, and his wife Wendy, came into the firm, so now it is a very congenial Hamm quartet who live and work and enjoy life in Lyle, by choice."
"Marshall worked in the signal department of Union Pacific from 1936-1946, which meant living everywhere up and down the system from Huntington, near the Idaho line, to Portland and Seattle, as the crew of 15 or so maintained the equipment including the so-important semaphore signals. Lillian went along too, and they lived in a 'homemade' trailer house before there were commercial ones available."
One nice thing about egotists......they don't talk about other people.
