The Pretenders are at it once again!
This production is "A Medieval Murder." Performances will be Nov. 16, 17 and 30, as well as Dec. 1. Tickets can be purchased at the Country Cafe in Lyle and Klint's Bookstore in The Dalles. The price of the tickets will include dinner. Once again the audience will be asked to participate in solving the crime, so come prepared to help your table mates in gathering clues and presenting the solution to the mystery. There will be prizes for costumes and for the best dressed. Wines are being catered by Marshall's Winery. I know many of us look forward to these fun evenings.
Who said one vote doesn't count? Have you studied the un-official results of the local races this past election? School board seats are almost too close to call, as well as mayor races in other communities. So we all need to exercise our right to study, learn and then cast our ballots. We know that the constant campaigning is wearing but there is an important Presidential Election next year that may change the world for us and our descendants so please again exercise your right and responsibility to vote.
The last week of the Twin Bridges Museum being open on Tuesday and Thursdays evenings is upon us. Nov. 20 will be your last opportunity to view the display of The Convict road building photos.
If your group is planning on presenting an EDA Grant request at the Nov. 26 council meeting please call Barbara 365-5374 to get on the agenda. Scott Smith from the county Public Works Department will be present to discuss the plans for the sidewalk from downtown to the high school. Council elections will be held at this meeting also.
From The Dalles Optimist -- Mid Columbian (Aug 18, 1966): "The fire might have destroyed our quiet little community of home-loving and friendly people. It could have done much more damage. But it didn't."
"The people of Lyle are grateful for those who pitched in and battled the flames and for those in nearby neighborly towns who volunteered their help. And we're humbly thankful to God for the miracle."
