Lyle is so lucky this year. Santa usually just checks his list twice but this year he is going to visit our town twice. On Wednesday, Dec. 15, at 6:45 p.m. he will ride into town escorted by the Klickitat County Sheriff deputies in their "reindeer" vehicles, led and guided by Rudolph of course. Then on Saturday, Dec. 18, he will arrive on one of the fleet of decorated fire trucks between 6 and 6:30 p.m.
The next OLESS meeting, weather permitting, will be Thursday evening at the Lyle Activity Center at 6 p.m. Under discussion will be the election of officers, spending the balance of the grant funds, budget etc. If you care about the center we urge you to attend and participate in the decisions. One of the meeting rooms now has heat so it will be warm!
On Saturday, Dec. 4, is the Lion's Club's first Saturday breakfast, it is followed at the Lyle Activity Center by the second study circle hosted by the Cultural Exchange Committee. Every one is invited to attend. A video of an interview of Andrew Fisher will be shown. Mr. Fisher wrote the recently published "Shadow Tribe," which will be the focus of future study circles.
"Martin and Friends" will be playing for your enjoyment and the OLESS will be selling goodies as a fundraiser for the building. Dancing and listening is free, so come cut a rug at The Lyle Activity Center on Dec. 12 from 2 to 5 p.m.
Excerpts from the book Early History of Klickitat County copyright by Jim Attwell 1977. Chapter Four - In Rowland Saga: "I visited Memaloose lots of times in the old days before the high waters washed away so many relics and people looted so much of the stuff. There was a big skull there that always interested me. I sure would have liked to have seen the man it belonged to when he was alive."
"My uncle, Green Rowland, measured it. It was thirteen inches from jaw bone to jaw bone. There was bullet hole in the forehead, so we always knew how the giant died."
Don't compare your life to others, you have no idea what their journey is all about.
