On Tuesday, Mar 30, at 7 p.m., you can enjoy an evening with two Washington State suffragettes at the White Salmon Library. This is an informative skit going back over 100 years in time when women were given the vote. Prim and proper Emma Smith DeVoe and outrageous and flamboyant May Arkwright Hutton, portrayed by actors, as they work together toward a common goal; that of getting women of Washington State the right to vote. This event is co-sponsored by the Library, West Klickitat County Historical Society and the Soroptimists International of Mt. Adams.

It is time to plan ahead. The Lyle Clean Up is quickly approaching, held on the second weekend of April. Remember this is free to you, but your monetary donation will help support projects of the Lyle Community Council.

History (New section of U.S. 830 dedicated at Lyle June 22, 1967): "Robert L. Mikalson, Washington State Highway Commission member, commented that "we will continue working with the legislators to provide facilities like this throughout the state. It's marvelous to see what has been done due to cooperation of contractors, the labor force and our own state people."

What bargain grandchildren are! I give them my loose change and they give me a million dollars worth of pleasure.
