Happy 35th birthday to the Lyle Sundowners. Eight rigs circled the campgrounds at Lewis and Clark Park in North Bonneville this past weekend. There were 14 members and eight guests. The group enjoyed a potluck on Saturday along with cards and dominos. The beautiful park meeting room is in reality a museum that pays tribute to Lewis and Clark and the pioneers of early days.
Don't have any facts or figures on the benefit dinner for the Coes but the Lions Club was packed from 4 p.m. until the close of the dinner so it must have been a successful fundraiser for them.
The Lions will once again host the annual Easter egg (candy) hunt on Saturday, March 22, at 9 a.m. at the Lyle Park Place. Bring the little ones for a fun adventure.
Sorry kids, the free movie has been postponed again until April. Everyone's schedule is so hectic the council felt it would be better to skip March.
Come to the speaker filled community council meeting on March 24. Speakers on the agenda are Fritz Osborne and Andy Kallinen from Columbia Hills State Park, Bill Weiler from Fish & Wildlife and Greg Harmon from Habitat for Humanity. Looks like this meeting will be filled with information of interest to almost everyone.
Community clean-up time is April 11 and 12. Gather your trash and support the council with its main fundraiser. This is your opportunity to dispose of those old appliances, (for a small fee) and other debris for free. Monetary donations will be gladly accepted.
June 14 and 15 is the 13 mile+ yard sale. Have you noticed the signs about town to sign up and to be on the map? You can call Joy Collins at 365-5102. She hopes to fill the park by the old school with sale tables so that all can benefit from the traffic on Highway 14. (She already has seven spots filled at the park so hurry to reserve yours.)
The Song of the Rivers: a poem by Elizabeth McDowell:
Rolling and tumbling from heights beyond knowing,
Moving and murmuring softly today;
The Song of the Rivers, flowing and flowing,
While all else succumbs to change and decay.
Oft through my dreams I can hear its clear singing,
The music of earth, of humanities will,
Seeking and finding, taking and bringing,
Nevermore ceasing, nevermore still.
Then I know in my heart that Life is Forever,
That dreams will come true and nevermore cease,
That man will lay down his long labors never,
And the Song of the Rivers is of eternal peace!
