The following thank you was given to us to include in this weeks news:
"To our wonderful, supportive, loving community, family and friends, we would like to tell everyone who has donated money, clothes, food, household items, their travel trailers, their own homes, their hearts, hugs, love and prayers to our family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for having the spaghetti feed to help raise money. Thank you to everyone who helped clean up the rubble with their dump trucks and heavy equipment. Thank you for donating your time to help us, without every ones donations we would have nothing. You have all come through for our family when we have needed you most. We thank you very much for everything. Our family is so thankful to you all. May God bless you as He has blessed us with so many loving and caring people in our community, our close friends, and our families. With a very heartfelt thank you, the Coe family Carri, Cameron, Carisa, Christian, and Cristani. Donations are still being accepted at U.S. Bank to: The Coe family fund, account #153560418359."
Don't forget Saturday, April 5, is the Lion's Club Breakfast. Rumor has it that they will also be serving biscuits and gravy that morning.
Community clean-up time is April 11 and 12. Gather your trash and support the council with its main fundraiser. There is a flier in the community newsletter "To The Point" telling what can and cannot be disposed of at the clean-up.
If you missed the school play this past weekend you missed a wonderful production of "Once On This Island Jr." that played to a packed house both evenings. It was overheard that the script prompter was deemed to be unnecessary either night. It is wonderful what those kids and their director can do. Of course this proud grandmother has to brag just a little, as Madison Wood (Barbara's granddaughter) did a superb job as Ti Moune the lead character.
Lyle Hotel is hosting "Pheasant Valley Winedinner," on Saturday, April 12, at 6 p.m. Call the 365-5953 for more information.
The Song of the Rivers (a history of Lyle by Elizabeth McDowell). Prologue: "As the ages of the earth unfolded, many millenniums ago, and the continents rose majestically from the sea, waters bubbled up through the earth's refining crust filled the high depressions and started on their sometimes long journey back to the sea."
"Such was a lake high on an extinct volcano in the Canadian Rockies, which would someday be named "Lake Columbia," whose overflow wound northward around its parent-mountain and then turned southward through descending levels until turning to the west and the Pacific Ocean.
