Lady Sundowners shared in the monthly luncheon at McLeod's restaurant last week. There were eight ladies and three lucky spouses (that were made to sit off in the corner so they weren't privy to the ladies conversations). Isn't that just the way the world is now a days?

"Martin and Friends" will be playing for your enjoyment and the OLESS will be selling goodies as a fundraiser for the building. Where? The Lyle Activity Center. When? Sunday Dec. 12. Time? From 2 to 5 p.m.

Come out on Dec. 18 at 10 a.m. and help the OLESS decorate the Park Place Pavilion with Christmas lights for the holidays.

Santa has changed his arrival time on Dec. 15 to about 6:45 p.m., but he said he hopes everyone will still come to see him. If you can't come on Dec. 15, he will return to give the children a second opportunity to visit with him on Dec. 18 around 6:15 p.m.

Two successful events this past week were: The OLESS Board meeting, where Lisa Conway was elected president for the coming year. She will bring new ideas and challenges to the Board...and, the Study Circle this past Saturday was attended by over a dozen citizens who watched the video interview with Andrew Fisher, whose book will be the subject of the study circle in February.

Deadline for an article to be in "To The Point" is Dec. 20. If you have something you wish to contribute please contact Glenda Lovejoy at as she is the publisher of the newsletter.

Renovations have begun at Twin Bridges Museum so when it opens in the spring expect a new look along with new displays, and new donated items.

Excerpts from the book Early History of Klickitat County, copyright by Jim Attwell, 1977. "Chapter Four -- In Rowland Saga: After my folks left Curtis Mountain we moved to Rowland Lake, where I. A. DeBois now lives. There I first began to play the violin. I played by ear and I got to be good enough to play for dances, first at Lyle then at White Salmon and other places. My brother Herbie played the banjo."

"Dances were different then. There wasn't any drinking. If anybody was drunk he was sent home. We did square dances, the schottiche, polka, two-step, Trolla waltz, heel-and-toe polka, round polka, and a lot of other steps."

When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
