We're telling you folks, this community is alive and thriving with opportunities for everyone to be involved in some way!
Game Night will be held on Feb 26 at the Lyle Activity Center from 7 to 10 p.m.
March 6 is the next Lion's Breakfast, so have your breakfast and then join the tentative volunteer work day, to begin the construction of the pavilion at Lyle Park Place. Mark your calendar, gather up your tools and plan on spending the day with an old fashion "barn raising." This structure will be a wonderful addition to the park that is used by families daily.
Word out is that the Habitat for Humanity Home will also need your volunteerism in the very near future. Work may begin as early as this coming week.
It is time to plan ahead. The Lyle Clean Up is quickly approaching; it is the second weekend in April. Remember this is free to you, but your monetary donation will help support projects of the Lyle Community Council.
Starting soon the Lyle Hotel will be open for dinners at least five nights a week, several of which will have live music for your enjoyment.
The 13 Mile Yard sale is on the horizon for June. Twin Bridges Museum is being given a quilt to raffle, made and donated by Ida Roane. Joy Collins will soon be contacting those who have been involved before to get your table on the map. You can contact her at 365-5102
Tables and chairs were joined to accommodate the 17 members of the local Sundowner's RV group who met Valentine's Day at "The Barbeque" in The Dalles.
Five couples from the Lyle Celebration Center have completed Dave Ramsay's "Financial Peace University." For time and location for new classes, contact the church at 365-3971.
History (New section of U.S. 830 dedicated at Lyle, June 22, 1967.): "L.D. Ewing of the Lyle Commercial Club, said he could remember when the only way to get to Bingen and White Salmon was either to go by way of Snowden or else down the river by boat. "Either way took several hours and now I understand it takes only eight or nine minutes", he said.
