Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us; but if you still have a few hard-to-shop-for friends and relatives still on your Christmas list, you can finish checking them off at the 8th Annual Dallesport Bazaar this coming weekend, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 2 and 3, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Columbia Hills Log Building on Hwy 197. It is the annual fundraiser for the Dallesport Community Council and fire department who will also sell chili, hot dogs, soda, and homemade cookies for lunch. Contact Alice Mattox at 509-767-4077.
It's your last chance to contact one of the Lions Club members with names of people who may qualify for one of the Christmas Baskets which will be dispersed on Dec. 17. Monetary or food donations can be brought to the Dec. 3 Saturday Breakfast. Members to contact: Martin Huffman, 541-993-2329; Joan Titus, 365-2872, or Rick and Linnea Denis, 365-0039.
Following the Lions Club Saturday Breakfast on Dec. 3 the River Peoples Cultural Exchange and Lyle Community Study Circle will hold their meeting at the Lyle Activity Center. Laura Slockish will be the guest speaker. She will share some of the challenges she faces maintaining her Native American culture and identity, in a dominantly white society, as a wife and mother.
This second in a series of five monthly sessions exploring personal xxperiences in bridging two cultures will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
The admission is free and all are welcome. For more information contact Portia Masterson, 509-281-0631 or firstname.lastname@example.org
It's not too early to mark your calendar for Santa's visit. A merger of the county fire, search and rescue, and the sheriff's departments will ensure his safe arrival on Friday, Dec. 16, about 6:45 to 7:30 p.m. at the Lyle Activity Center, corner of 3rd and Klickitat streets. Weather will determine whether Santa will hear the children's requests indoors or outdoors in his sleigh, so bring your camera to catch that memorable photo of your child on his knee.
Members of the Twin Bridges Museum and OLESS will serve cocoa and cookies, but any and all who wish to help out will be welcome.
A thought to remember: A person finding no fault in their self...needs a second opinion.
