The Lyle Lion's Club would like to thank all who contributed to their Saturday breakfasts, and to all who generously gave so they could prepare and distribute 79 food baskets this year.
The community was bright and festive for the holidays again this Christmas season. Fourteen families were given prizes donated by businesses in the Gorge. Those who gave prizes are thanked and those who received are as follows, although not listed in any order: The Wayne Trospers -- Columbia Gorge Breakfast gift certificate' Greg Colt Realty -- Beneventi's gift certificate; Cindy Saunders and the Dean Oldenburgs -- gift certificates from The Country Cafe; the Ralph Keiths -- Les Schwab T-shirts; the Jack Bryans and Jim Titus -- Lyle Hotel gift certificates; Cougar Den/Coffee Shop and the Martin Huffmans -- Port of Hood River bridge tickets; the Mike Saylers -- McCoy Video gift certificates; Colleen Hatfield -- Diane's Beauty Shop gift certificate; Norm White -- Bingen Station coffee mug, the Jim Brashers -- Memories by Mildred gift certificate; and Oren Johnson -- Cougar Den gift certificate. Kudos to the best-decorated block in Lyle "Washington St. between 4th & 5th." It truly was beautiful!
Thanks go to the Lyle Hotel and the Lyle Post Office for their donation of the Lewis and Clark Commemorative Postage Cancellation Stamp and Poster to the Lyle Historical Museum. This will insure this tribute will stay in the community forever.
The Lyle Community Council will be meeting on Jan. 23. This is your opportunity to get involved and participate in the decisions made by the council regarding your community.
Churches in Lyle are the United Methodist, 403 Klickitat St, and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.
An article printed on March 21, 1957, in the Goldendale Sentinel, written by Grace Minor: "A city park became the next project of the Improvement Club and the Grove in Lyle became the site of the Lyle Parkland. A trailer court occupies that site at present. In the meetings of the Woman's Club they studied, "Rearing Better Babies," and "Short Cuts to Economy"."
I've learned the easiest way for me to grow, as person is to surround myself with people smarter than I am!
