The Community and the county showed up strong Saturday, Dec. 9, to honor their own Joan Frey for her many dedicated years as Klickitat County Commissioner. Also in attendance were State Senator Jim Honeyford, State Representatives Bruce Chandler and Dan Newhouse as well as Jim Hodges, Allied (Rabanco) Marketing Director. Stories were shared, accolades were showered. The Indoor Arena at the Fair Grounds in Goldendale was an inspiration of hers. It was announced and shown with a huge sign that it will now carry the name "Joan Frey Indoor Arena."

The Sundowners RV Club helped Shirley Tanner celebrate her 95th birthday this past Sunday with a potluck dinner. Shirley's actual birthday was Dec. 1. About 40 Sundowners and several guests were in attendance. Shirley and Frank Tanner were part of the group that organized the club many years ago, and she has kept wonderful scrapbooks and photo albums showing their activities over the years. What a testament of history.

Santa, along with the Christmas Lighted Fire Trucks, will arrive between 6:30 and 7 P.M. on Dec. 16 at Lyle Park Place. Hot cocoa and treats will once again be served by the Community Council, and the Twin Bridges Museum will be open to the public. Also at the park anonymous donors have added to the Christmas decorations. What a pleasant surprise and how pretty it all looks. Thank You!

The December Community Council meeting will be held Dec. 18. The council election will be held then along with the EDA Grant requests. Mike Canon from the EDA Office will be our speaker.

Jan. 20 is the date set for "Over the Hedge," which is the title of the next free movie. Mark your calendars and plan to attend!

Preparation of the January newsletter is in the works, ideas that you would like to share with your community are welcome. One example is Lisa Conway's project to rid the Park Place of the dreaded "Puncture Vine." Contact any council member, or Glenda Lovejoy who is the editor. The newsletter is an opportunity to contribute to the cohesiveness of the community.

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

The public is invited to the Methodist Church Christmas Eve service at 6 p.m.

Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
