Community Clean-up time is fast approaching. This year our crew is being joined by a new volunteer. Norma Brashers (who grew up in the area and has recently returned). She is going to work with the youth and the businesses in town to get them involved. We've heard rumors of contests, prizes, food, and fun times. So if she approaches you for any of the above go for it! This is such a great community effort each year and her ideas and enthusiasm are greatly welcomed.
Twin Bridges Museum Board voted at its last meeting to have a booth at the 13 Mile Yard Sale in June and this will be the main fundraiser for the museum. So board members are asking for donations of quality items to sell. Please search your home and find at least one thing you can live with out and let them have it for the booth. The board also is looking forward to opening the museum to the public one or two times a week in the summer months. This will be done by volunteers so if you are interested and have time please contact Terry Mills. Again, if you have history or memorabilia of Lyle, the museum is very interested in preserving it. So, again contact Terry to arrange for the museum to have it or to make copies of it.
LCC Council will hold its regular meeting on Monday, Feb. 25, at 7 p.m. at the Lyle Lions Club. The guest speaker will be Greg Harmon, from Habitat for Humanity. He will be speaking about the opportunity of having Habitat housing in our community.
From The Goldendale Sentinel, April 5th, 1956 (article lauds Mrs. Frank Gill, pioneer resident of county): "Mrs. Gill was a charter member of the Columbia Woman's Auxiliary when it was organized on Aug. 25, 1943. Mr. Gill prepared the by-laws for the ladies and Mrs. Gill explained them at the first meeting, and has spent many pleasant years of working with the women to make the Grange hall more homelike and the community a better place to live."
Humor and Lexophiles (lovers of words): He broke his song because he couldn't find the key.
