A group of dedicated volunteers met last Saturday at the Lyle Activity Center and cleaned out the boiler room in preparation for repairing the roof. Looks like they have an extensive mound of discards to dispose of at the "Annual Lyle Community Clean up," on April 8 and 9. Don't forget you, too, can take advantage of this clean up for your personal home rubbish. The clean up helps beautify Lyle and is the only fund raiser the council has so your monetary donations are gratefully accepted and are put back into our community.
The local Sundowners RV Club met last weekend at Lewis & Clark Campgrounds in North Bonneville for its first campout of 2011. There were four rigs and three other couples who came for the potluck and meeting. All enjoyed the barbecue Friday night and the pot luck on Saturday.
The Grange open house this past Saturday generated several new members, and commitments from existing members. The hope is still that Columbia Grange can be kept alive.
