Many woke to snow on the ground Sunday morning...this is a reminder that winter is here and a neighborly thing to do is check on the elderly and offer your services if needed. There are many out there who don't drive in the inclement weather and lack the ability to obtain necessary household items or medical supplies.
The Lyle Fire Department has appointed David McCune to fill the seat vacated when commissioner Mike Sorensen retired. McCune will hold the position for the remainder of the two year term.
Dec. 12 will see two of Lyle's writers holding a book signing in Goldendale. Colleen Hatfield and Mildred Lykens have both written books based on their family history and will have autographed copies for sale that day, at the book store on Main Street. (A good Christmas gift for that reader in your family).
The community is invited by The Lyle Hotel to its open house on Sunday, Dec. 13, from 3 to 6 p.m. Come meet the new owners Mary Ann and Steve to enjoy a pleasant afternoon with complimentary appetizers.
A successful "1st" Game Night was held Friday at the Lyle Activity Center. A crowd, ages ranging from 8 years old to "grannies," enjoyed games varying from cards to videos. Popcorn and homemade cookies were served as treats. The next game night will be Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. You can enjoy pictures of this event on the Lyle Blog.
The Santa Fire Truck Caravan will arrive in town on Dec. 19 about 6:20 p.m. The council and the OLEES will be serving cocoa and treats that evening at the Lyle Activity Center. Santa will be there to chat with the kiddies, (young and old) but his time will be short due to his tight schedule that night.
Excerpts from Bingen Observer, May 13, 1910: "More Help on State Road -- It is reported that 50 more convicts have arrived at Lyle to work on the state road, and that a large number more will soon arrive. The work will then be pushed both east and west. If necessary another stockade will be built probably near Bingen."
