Lyle Ladies Bazaar was a huge success, at least for the OLEES. The taco bar was almost sold out and the raffle brought in more funds. Looks like we are well on our way to paying the light bill for the winter months.
Lyle Middle School and High School Drama classes will present a play titled "Trouble at the Talent Show" on Nov. 21 and 22 at the Dallesport Elementary School. The price of $5 will include a dinner of lasagna w/soup, salad and bread. All this begins at 7 p.m.
Columbia Grange #87 will hold an open house on Nov. 21 at 12:30 with a potluck, with the turkey, dressing and rolls provided by the grange. Bring your favorite dish and join the grangers for a visit and good food.
Another open house will be hosted by the local wineries. On Thanksgiving weekend the following wineries will be open: Domaine Pouillon, Syncline, Cor Cellars and Memaloose. If you bring a donation of a non-perishable food, item for the Washington Gorge Action Program in Bingen, the tasting is free.
Speaking at the Lyle Community Council meeting, on Nov. 23, will be Tom Wooding and Dana Scheffler on the subject of the formation of a Park and Recreation District for the White Salmon Valley. Council elections will also be held at the meeting. Those running for council positions are Terry Mills, Mildred Lykens and Juliet Pouillon.
Now, you can mark you calendar for the next bazaar. The Dallesport Community Council and Fire Department will hold its 6th annual Christmas Bazaar on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 4 and 5. It will be held at the log building on Highway 197 (Columbia Hills RV Park) from 9-5 on Friday and 9-4 on Saturday.
Excerpts from Bingen Observer May 13, 1910, "Farmers Institute Held at Lyle -- Mr. H. W. Sparks Supervisor of Demonstration Farms, will discuss "orchard management" and also give some excellent suggestions on clearing logged off lands. The meetings will be held in Lee's hall, and the party will be entertained by The Commercial Club and the local Grange jointly."
