Terry Mills hosted a surprise "major milestone" birthday party for his wife Barbara on Saturday, Nov. 18. Barbara, her three sisters and mom Darla Brashers had returned a day or so before from a ten-day vacation in Mexico. Darla began the outing with a fall down seven steps at the home they were renting. As the saying goes you should see the other guy. Even though she had a knot the size of a golf ball on her forehead, two black eyes, multiple contusions and a broken wrist she didn't slow down, and the whole group had a memorable week.
Churches in Lyle are United Methodist, 403 Klickitat St, and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.
Excerpts from a pamphlet issued by The Lyle Commercial Club (date unknown): "The town of Lyle occupies one of the most commanding and beautiful locations on the Columbia River. For many years the development of Lyle has been retarded, but the recent opening for public sales of the town site has removed all bars to its future growth and development."
"The development of the waterpower of the Klickitat will bring manufacturing interest, while the growth of the backcountry will make it an important trading and shipping point."
"What Lyle needs most is men and women, men to till our lands and build houses, and women to make our homes. We believe that here success and contentment is within the reach of all."
