Shirley Tanner's memorial service will be held at the Columbia Grange Hall on Saturday, Aug. 14, at 2 p.m. A potluck dinner hosted by the Sundowners RV Club will follow.

The next meeting of the OLESS is Monday, Aug. 16, at 7 p.m. at the Lyle Activity Center. Many good things are happening to create our Activity Center and park. On that note, a great big thank you goes to three electricians from Portland who spent this past Saturday donating their day, expertise and travel time to work on the wiring at the Activity Center. Hopefully now we won't blow circuits when more than one thing is plugged in. The OLESS and those who use the center appreciate their generosity.

The Lyle Community Council will meet Monday, Aug. 23, at 7 p.m. at the Lions Club. On the agenda this month is the sheriff, the PUD, and Doug Miller who is running for PUD Commissioner. Should be an interesting and informative meeting.

A reminder that the Twin Bridges Museum is open on Thursday evenings 6 to 8 p.m. Also, the quilt that Ida Roane made and donated is on display with raffle tickets at $1 each. The drawing for the quilt will be held in Aug. 29 at the History and Music Evening in the Park.

A reminder to the public...the Lyle Activity Center has rooms to rent for parties, meetings, classes or other events. Call Joy at 365-5102 to schedule. The rent is nominal and offsets the utilities costs and it is a convenient location with the new pavilion and the park adjacent.

History (Pioneer Days much better than Atomic Ages, says Ira Rowland): "Squaw whipped, Chapter ll -- A few days later three big Indian bucks came they were all dressed up in deer skins and they had eagle feathers in their hair. They had berry stains all over their faces for war paint."

"This time father wasn't home. My sister and I hung on to mother as tight as we could. The Indians told her we have to leave in three days or they would kill us all. When father came home he took a light view of it, and said he was sure they wouldn't hurt us."

"But three days later while father was off in the woods, the same three Indians came back again. They were all dressed up in their fighting clothes. They told mother if we didn't go before sundown they would kill us."

When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the corn's natural sweetness.
