The Grange Hall was jumping with the music by the "Mill Creek String Band" during "The Last Blast of Summer" Friday night. Age was no concern to the dancers as they paired off and followed the lead of the dance caller Sue Baker, who led them in the steps of different contra dances and brought many to the floor with hand clapping and "Wahoos." On the quieter side, there was also the ever popular waltz.

Thanks to many generous merchants, the silent auction brought in much needed funds for newer lifesaving equipment for our valiant men and women of the volunteer fire department.

Domaine Pouillon Winery is offering free movies to the public this summer. They are pulling out the big screen, projector, popcorn, and serious sound system each Friday and Saturday at 8:30 p.m. Movies will range from classics to new favorites, so bring your chair or something comfy to sit on and a blanket to snuggle under. They will provide the entertainment. Children are welcome for the first two movies, but the last three may not be appropriate for young minds. Dates and titles of the movies are: Aug. 19, Rango; Aug 20, M. Hulots Holiday; Aug 26, Pulp Fiction; Aug 27, Delicatessen; and on Sept 2, Amelie. For directions to the location or further information call: 365-2795

Lyle Community Council will be meeting Monday night, Aug. 22 at 7 p.m. at the Lions Club. The agenda this month includes Bob Hansen from the Rails to Trails Conservatory. These meetings allow residents a platform for expressing any suggestion, proposal or concern they may have. Be assured that the council will address the issue and within their power take steps to resolve it. But there's little accomplished without hearing these ideas, so show your support by attending the meetings.

It's that time again, folks...the county fair is opening next week. Are you ready? Do you have your fair entries all spruced up and ready to be judged? This tradition dates back over a 100 years of friendly competition of farmers and their wives to see whose garden yielded the largest pumpkin or whose kitchen produced the tastiest apple pie. There is always something for everyone from horsemanship competition to the 4-H livestock auction; the hand crafted quilts and the photography on display. So take pride in the talent you have and share it by entering something you've created. It makes the fair a lot more interesting.

A thought to remember: Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible. Author Unknown
