Those who gathered upstairs in the Twin Bridges Museum this week were privy to a memorable ceremony with the United Methodist Church's past Pastor Earl Lane, the UMC District Superintendent David Nieda and the Pacific NW Area Conference's treasurer Craig Parrish; they presented the museum's President Terry Mills with a donation check of $5,000. Accolades were also expressed for the dedicated residents who strived to keep the church going for over a hundred years and had kept the building in such good condition. After each party spoke, either in congratulation or gratitude, the entire audience was invited downstairs to share in dessert of coffee, juice and a decorated cake adorned with a photo of the Twin Bridges Logo on top.

Whether as a graduate, student, teacher, custodian, cook, bus driver, etc., ALL are welcome to this year's Lyle All School Reunion, on Aug. 4 and 5. The Portage Grill is the chosen spot for the 5:30 p.m. banquet. Reminisce with old classmates, visit the no host bar, have your photo taken, enjoy the memorabilia and choose the auction items you wish to bid on during the 7 p.m. dinner. Music for your dancing pleasure will spotlight the Connolly Boys at 9:30. The Lion's Club will be the setting for the next morning's 9 to 11 breakfast with time for more socializing before the sad goodbyes. Set aside old differences with that bullying schoolmate and concentrate on the friends who would like to see you again! Questions? Contact Barbara Sexton at or 365-5374.

In keeping up with the controversy of "redistricting the Lyle School District;" this week Vern Harpole reported that he will be transporting the certified signatures from the Klickitat County Auditor's office to the ESD office, who will thereupon design the wording that will be placed on the next General Election Ballot. These signatures are from the petitions gathered in the past few weeks to change the district into no fewer than three director districts and no more than two directors at large.

This past week a group of dedicated volunteers cleaned up the park, playground and pavilion. Bags of litter were gathered as well as removal of some undesirable graffiti about a popular teen idol. (Initials J.B.) Evidently he is not everyone’' heartthrob that the media makes him out to be, but it would be more appropriate to direct one's emotions to his blog and not our walls.
