This month's community council meeting will be Sept. 27. Instead of a regular meeting, it will be a candidates' forum, your opportunity to come out, hear the candidates and to ask questions.
Also, the council's elections will be held in November. Two positions are up for re-election. Position 1 - Darla Brashers and Position 2 - Oren Johnson. Anyone wishing to run for one of these positions must declare in writing to a council member before or by Sept. 27.
Friends of High Prairie are inviting every one to help them celebrate their new building at an "Open House" on Sunday Oct. 10, from 2 to 6 p.m. with a Grand Opening Ceremony at 3. This is the combination building for High Prairie Fire Department and Community Hall, and is located at 701 Struck Road, High Prairie.
Congratulations to Karen Stafford. She was the lucky winner of the quilt that was made and donated to the Twin Bridges Museum by Ida Roan. It was raffled as a fundraiser for the museum and Karen's name was drawn at the history and music event a couple of weeks ago.
Would you like to have music and dancing at the Lyle Activity Center on a regular basis? A group of musicians has agreed to come once a month. Now we would like someone to step forward to schedule and host the event. It could be a fun evening or afternoon and open the Activity Center to many more folks from all over the gorge.
Excerpts from the book: "Early History of Klickitat County" copyright Jim Attwell 1977: Chapter Three -- Indians Chase Ira Rowland. "I can remember mother getting ready, my sister and I tagging along behind while she packed the wagon. She caught the chickens, tied up their legs and put them in sacks. She found the cows and tied them off behind the wagon. She even cooked up some food to eat on the way and packed it and whatever victuals and bedding we had in the wagon too. She was half scared to death, but she had the presence of mind to do all these things and hitch up too, something few women could do today."
A thief fell and broke his leg in wet cement. He became a hardened criminal.
