Nada McMurrin was taken to Mid Columbia Medical Center this past week where she has been undergoing tests. She is going to Portland on Monday for more testing. But we are happy to report that in the midst of all this medical stuff she is feeling much better, is up and around, sharing her joy and enthusiasm with staff and other hospital patients.
"To Catch a Thief" dinner will be at the Dallesport Elementary School on Thursday, Feb 9. This is being held to help raise funds to replace the library books that were destroyed by vandals last week. There will also be an auction of some wonderful donated items. Such as scenic flights, dollars off on some great merchandise; so open your hearts and checkbooks and show your support for the school.
Welcome to the new owners of the Lyle Hotel. Penny and Jim you will be missed and the community has benefited from the fine job you did with the hotel while it was under your ownership.
"Lewis and Clark" are going to make a return visit to Lyle in April. The Lyle Historical Society is working in conjunction with them by holding a grand opening of the museum. Watch for an update and let us know if you have any Lyle area memorabilia to add to the museums growing collection.
The next council meeting will be Feb. 27. Both Tim O'Neil and Chris Mace will be in attendance to address what can be done about the crime and drugs that seem to have taken roost in Lyle. Please put this date on your calendar and fill the house to let them know "Not in our Town!"
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: "The Robert McMurrin Family -- Nada Clark was born at Goldendale, Dec. 16, 1922. Her family lived at Hartland, Lyle, and Grand Dalles, but when her dad died they returned to Harland. Nada graduated from high school there, attended college at Ellensburg, then taught at Prosser."
I've learned that everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile.
