A community "thank you" to the group of local citizens who volunteered, organized and proceeded to follow through in helping a burned out resident clean up the debris from his fire. An act of kindness like this helps not only the victim, the community and but also makes Lyle a great place to live.
Congratulations to the several music students from the Lyle Middle School and Lyle High School who were chosen to take part in the Gorge wide Honors Band this week. It was held in Trout Lake and the concert was on Monday night. This is a wonderful learning experience and an honor for any band member selected to take part.
Thursday, March 23, at 6:30 p.m. at the Lyle Lions Club, the Lyle Community Council is hosting its second Meth Education Night. Snacks will be provided and everyone is welcome.
The Lion's Club is once again sponsoring the Easter Egg Hunt at the Lyle Park Place on Saturday April 15, at 9 a.m. The Easter Bunny will be on hand to have pictures taken. He will assist the wee ones, in finding their share of the candy that will be hidden in place of the traditional Easter eggs. The field will be divided for the following ages -- pre-school, K-2, 3-4 and 5 and up.
The Lyle Lion's Club is boasting that 192 breakfasts were served at its "1st Saturday of the month" breakfast. Is that a lot of pancakes or what? The bulk of funds raised by these meals usually find their way back into the community.
Churches in Lyle are United Methodist, 403 Klickitat St, and Lyle Celebration Center, 715 Washington St.
Alcohol Anonymous meets on Friday evenings at 7 p.m. in the Methodist Church basement. Lyle's polling place is also at the Methodist Church.

Balch, who wrote "Bridge of the Gods." Marshall joined them after graduation and worked with his father in various jobs during those Depression days.
