"Game Night" will be held this Friday, Dec. 18, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Activity Center. Everyone is welcome to join the fun of video and table games, from "Go Fish" to "Chess" as they listen to our local youth band. Anyone with old games or puzzles they no longer need, and wish to donate, may bring them to the center that evening or call Mildred at 365-0060 to drop them off.

The Sundowners RV Club combined its monthly meeting and annual Christmas Party at the Lyle Grange Hall on Sunday. A large turkey dinner with all the trimmings along with the usual potluck was enjoyed by all that attended and several groans of full happy bellies were heard. After clean up, those who could stay gathered around separate tables and either played cards or Mexican Train.
The Who's Who of Lyle attended and enjoyed the camaraderie of their peers at the Lyle Hotel's Open House on Sunday evening. The staff was seen scrambling for chairs to seat the multitude that gathered for an evening's enjoyment of music and complimentary appetizers.
As we count our blessing this Christmas season, let's open our hearts to those less fortunate by donating to a favorite charity either financially or physically. Sometimes just a visit to patients at your local hospital can do wonders for their spirit...and yours.
