It takes a lot to get the "Snow Birders" to return home early. But this year Jim and Joan Titus had a good reason. Their son Paul and daughter-in-law Mary Jo presented them with a new grandchild. Natalie Clair is just about two weeks old and doing great. Paul and family reside in The Dalles, so you can bet where Jim and Joan will be spending a lot of their time.

Lyle's annual clean-up days are this coming Friday and Saturday, April 7 and 8. The orange bags that are usually left on each doorstep will be available at the clean up. There was a flier in your newsletter last week listing all items that will be accepted at the cleanup. Let's do the community up spiffy and fill many dumpsters again this year.

The Lion's Club again sponsors the Annual Easter egg hunt at the Lyle Park Place on Saturday, April 15, at 9 a.m. The Lewis and Clark re-enactors will be on hand also with their drum, fife and bugle corps. And The Lyle Historical Society will have the museum open for visitors after the Easter egg hunt. Looks like a fun day for Lyle.

Sunrise Service will be held out side at the Methodist Church at 7:30 a.m. on Easter Sunday. Then the men of the church will prepare breakfast and Easter Services will begin at 10 a.m. All are invited to attend these joyous morning services and the wonderful breakfast. This is a good Sunday to attend and learn about the little church with the "Cross and Flame" on the hill in Lyle.

Churches in Lyle are United Methodist, 403 Klickitat St, and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.

Taken from The History of Klickitat County Washington published by Klickitat County Historical Society in 1982: "Marshall & Lillian Hamm -- They lived in Tacoma for a time, but city life was not to their liking. They left in 1936 to make Lyle their home base. Marshall worked in a sawmill, and then went to work for the Union Pacific Railway for a period of ten years. During that time they followed the job locations from Portland to Huntington, Ore., early "pioneers" in trailering! Barbara Carole was born Feb. 18, 1939 and William Marshall was born July 24, 1942. That year they bought the ranch, which is now their home."
