The Lyle Lions would like to thank everyone who attended the Hurricane Katrina Breakfast and for their generous donations. The breakfast earnings and the donations totaled $1,600. It has been sent to help the Hurricane Katrina victims.
A big thanks goes out to Les Haarstad for the donation of two glass cases to the Lyle "Museum" and to Dean Oldenburg, Mindy Robersen, and Kacee Vaughn for assisting in moving them to the museum location. A third glass case was purchased in White Salmon and Glenn Wood was kind enough to pick it up and deliver it. As you can see the community is coming together in the preparation for the preservation of Lyle history.
