The Lion's Club is presenting its annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Lyle Park Place on Saturday, April 7, at 9 a.m., with the OLESS on board to help sponsor it. It will be a grand time to come out and enjoy the children's delight of finding each tiny treasure tucked behind a clump of grass while the adults watch and photograph their favorite "hunter." It's fun to watch both the kids and the parents.
Following the Easter Egg Hunt, on April 7, Wilson Wewa, Jr. will be the guest of the River People's Culture Exchange at 10:30 in the Lyle Activity Center. He will give a contemporary perspective of attitudes and programs at the reservation. The Study Circle programs will continue next winter, but to stay informed as the future programs evolve, contact Portia, 509-281-0631, firstname.lastname@example.org .
The OLESS monthly meeting at the Activity Center will be on Monday, April 9 at 7 p.m. Isn't it time to join a positive group that has only the betterment of Lyle and its residents at heart? Sit in and decide for yourself.
Clean Up Day will only be for ONE day this year. It is scheduled for ONLY Saturday, April 14, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Your undesirables can be brought to the school bus parking lot (the corner of 5th and SR-14) with the same rules, so take advantage of free dumping, (although the Lyle Community Council appreciates any and all donations). Any questions can be answered by Joy Collins, 365-5102.
The Lyle Community Council is seeking help in pursuing ways in the beautification of Lyle to the eyes of the tourist or traveler passing through and hoping to find ways of attracting them to stop and stay awhile. This would be advantageous to our business owners and show pride in our community. Jot down your ideas and bring them to be discussed at the next meeting of Monday, April 23, at 7 p.m. The council would appreciate your input.
