Just a heads up for all hunters and hikers -- many hikes have been planned this month and paths may cross between the two...just keep aware of your surroundings and plan accordingly.
Klickitat Trail Conservancy (KTC) 9th Anniversary and New Lyle Trailhead Celebration is Sunday, Oct. 23. Two hikes are planned -- Fisher Hill Bridge to Pitt, or, Lyle to the Fisher Hill Bridge. KTC Board Members Jim Denton, Bev Linde, and Barbara Robinson will be at the new Lyle Trailhead with free snacks for the hikers. The first hike is a strenuous eight-plus mile, one way from the Fisher Hill Trestle to Pitt, which involves a car shuttle. The second is an easier four-mile round trip, from Lyle to the Fisher Hill Bridge. Both hikes follow the Klickitat River and are flat, but the trail is rocky, so wear sturdy shoes. Bring water and a lunch.
One last notice. To all residents desiring a seat on the board of the Lyle Community Council, you must declare your intentions for one of the three open positions on or before the meeting of Oct. 24 to qualify. One person can make a difference, so try it, you just might like it.
Time and tickets are running out for your opportunity to discover firsthand how "spirits" are recorded. On Oct. 29, the OLESS will host The Columbia Gorge Paranormal Society in its plans to answer all those questions you've wondered about. Wine, appetizers and a one hour lecture will start at 6 p.m. at the Activity Center, followed by a field trip to the Lyle Hotel where these activities have been reported. Price is $25 a ticket. Contact Vern at 365-6828 or Lisa at 365-6828.
The Pretenders are in rehearsal! The upcoming Dinner Theater "Love, Sex and the IRS" is sure to keep you laughing while Beneventi's caters to your fine dining experience. It will be held at the Lyle Grange on Nov.11-12 and 18-19. More information will follow, but get your tickets now at Klindt's Book Sellers in The Dalles or the Country Cafe in Lyle.
Also on Nov 11-12, the annual Lyle Bazaar will be held at the Activity Center. Many vendors have already signed up and are anxious to show their wares. Beautiful homemade articles, foods and one-of-a-kind items will be on display, ready for you to get a good start on that Christmas list.
A thought to remember: Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
