If laughter is the best medicine, you will find great therapy at the Lyle Grange. The actors of the Pretenders Dinner Theater will "cure what ails you" by their presentation of "Love, Sex and the IRS." Their next and final presentation will be on Nov. 18 nd 19 with doors opening at 6:30, dinner at 7 and play starts at 7:30. You will experience a delicious dinner catered by Beneventi's, while Marshall's Winery offers a wide variety of fine wines for an evening of enjoyment for all of your senses. So eat, drink and be merry...for the next day you will be healed! Advance tickets are a must and can be purchased at Klindt's Booksellers in The Dalles and Country Cafe in Lyle.
You still have a chance to start your Christmas shopping early with the one-of-a-kind items found at the 8th Annual Dallesport Bazaar which will be on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2 and 3, from 9 to 4, at the Columbia Hills Log Building on Hwy 197. The Dallesport Community Council and Fire Department host it and sell chili, hot dogs, soda, and homemade cookies for lunch. Contact Alice Mattox at 509-767-4077.
The Lions Club Christmas Baskets will be dispersed on Dec. 17. They serve the Lyle, Murdock, Dallesport and High Prairie areas and are seeking donations which can be mailed to them at P.O. Box 383, Lyle; or brought to the Dec. 3 Saturday Breakfast. Please contact one of the following Lions if you wish to submit the name of an individual or a needy family: Martin Huffman, 541-993-2329; Joan Titus. 365-2872; or Rick and Linnea Denis, 365-0039. The club will take cash or food donations of macaroni and cheese, canned fruit or vegetables and are hoping to "meet the needs of those who need it the most."
Remember every 3rd Saturday of the month The United Methodist Church, located on the corner of 4th and Klickitat St, is offering a free bag of personal essentials between 10 a.m. to noon. Their Hope Project desires to reach those who cannot afford these items.
A thought to remember: When my mother observed a self-righteous person she would say, "I wish I could buy him for what he's worth and sell him for what he thinks he's worth!" I'm sure she previously heard it, but it always seemed to fit.
