Bazaar Time is upon us!
Dec. 7 and 8 are the dates for the Dallesport-Murdock Community Council's 4th Annual Christmas Bazaar. It will be held in the log building at Columbia Hills R.V. Park from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. This is a great place to begin your Christmas shopping.
Twenty-two members of the Sundowners R.V. Club welcomed five guests to their dinner held Nov. 11, at the Casa El Mirador in The Dalles. The December Christmas dinner will be held at the Columbia Grange Hall in Lyle.
Many jovial attendees enjoyed "A Medieval Murder" performance this past weekend and those who attend this next weekend are in for a treat. Several attended in Medieval costumes and some were awarded gifts donated by local wineries and other businesses for their costumes. Tickets for next weekend's performances can be purchased at the Country Cafe in Lyle and Klint's Book Store in The Dalles. The price of the tickets will include a dinner catered by Carolyn Thompson of "Carolyn's Heritage Kitchen."
The Community Council meeting is Monday, Nov. 26, and the EDA Grant Proposals are to be presented. Also Scott Smith from the county will be on hand to show plans for the sidewalk to the high school. Council elections will be held with Darla Brashers and Mike Sayler both up for re-election.
From The Goldendale Sentinel (April 5, 1956): "Article Lauds Mrs. Frank Gill, Pioneer Resident of County"
"The following article, written by Mrs. F.H. Keyes, was read as a eulogy for Mrs. Frank Gill of Lyle at a meeting at the Lyle Grange recently on the occasion of the 80th birthday."
"It takes a lot of living to make a year and it takes a lot of years to make a life. This evening we wish to honor one of our Grange Sisters who had done a lot living and just four days ago reached her 80th birthday. Mrs. Gill, this is our tribute to you and we hope you're going to enjoy this part of the program as much as we enjoyed gathering the material. "
"In the year of 1876 on the 13th of March in the town of Morrisdale, Pennsylvania, Rock-a-bye Baby was the song of the day for William and Sussah Dale the parents of a very new baby girl who was to be named Iva-May -- the May after her mother. She had an older brother and was to become one from a family of eleven children, but now there was only one center of interest, little Iva."
