Seven Lylites boarded the tour bus that took them to WSU in Spokane for additional training of the Horizon Project. The three-day seminar was fast and furious for Oren Johnson, Julie Larson, Lorie Hull, Holly England, Austin Howard, Barbara Sexton and Mildred Lykens. The training they underwent will benefit the community towards expanding the project in reaching a future goal.
Once again a reminder to mark your calendars for Dec. 21, to come and hear the proposals and be involved in the selection process for the Horizon's project for Lyle. There will be a free meal at the Lyle Lions Community Center, 1 p.m., come show your support for this wonderful town we all share.
The Dallesport Annual Bazaar was a buzz of activity this past weekend. The various vendors gave many choices to the visitors who found unique hand made items just perfect for that hard-to-please person on their Christmas list.
Also mark your calendar for Santa's arrival on the Christmas Decorated Fire trucks. The trucks will circle around Lyle Park Place at approximately 6:15, Dec. 20, so be there early for treats and hot cocoa sponsored by Lyle's Twin Bridges Museum.
The Lyle United Methodist Church invites everyone to share in their Christmas Eve Service at 6 p.m. Come share the "Reason for the Season."
The Song of the Rivers (a history of Lyle by Elizabeth McDowell): "VII A Tribute -- The purpose of the Pioneer Days Celebration is somewhat more than just to give those who come a good time, of course. It is also to honor and salute the brave Pioneers, living or dead, who braved hardship, danger and the hazards of the unknown, to people the West with enterprising, hard-working folks who made it what it is today. We try to show what it was like in the 'old days' and to imitate briefly the fine people who lived through that time. "
"For they were the backbone of our beloved America, the sturdy stuff of patriotism and devotion and human kindness which have become a part of our own lives, and we are grateful to them."
"We do not suffer from insanity, we enjoy every minute of it!"
