The All School Reunion committee will meet at 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 29, at the Twin Bridges Museum in the activity center, corner of 3rd & Klickitat Streets. If you wish to help organize this annual event please attend. By doing so you will be helping those who have previously met the challenge and who would appreciate a few more ideas and helping hands.
There is an OLESS meeting planned for Monday, April 9, at 7 p.m. at the Lyle Activity Center. Support this group by investing a little of your time. Attend at least one meeting and discover how these volunteers are committing a little of their time to the betterment of our community. Minutes of previous meetings are available at http://lyleschoolbuilding.blogspot.com/
It is important to be aware that this year's annual Clean Up Day will only be for ONE day. It is scheduled for only Saturday, April 14, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The location is still at the school bus parking lot (the corner of 5th and SR-14) with the same rules. So start sprucing up the yard and cleaning out the unwanted from attic and garage to take advantage of dumping for free, (although the Lyle Community Council appreciate any and all donations to further their quest in creating future public events). Preceding this event, volunteers are needed to canvas Lyle proper with instruction flyers and empty bags for the public's convenience. Any questions can be answered by Joy Collins 365-5102.
This season, the River Peoples Cultural Exchange will shift from the May event to outreach to the local Native American communities. The programs will be included on What's Happening in Lyle and emailed directly to interested community members. If you would like to receive emails specific to the RPCE programs, please contact Portia, firstname.lastname@example.org. The goals are to learn more about local Native culture, build friendships in neighboring communities, and have fun. At this time, the Rock Creek Powwow (April 21) and the Maryhill Museum dedication in May are the only confirmed events with carpools from Lyle. Others are still in the planning stage. Please arrange with each driver to contribute to gas expense.
It seems the older I get the less I enjoy the sight of falling snow. I don't know about you but I'm ready for warmer days.
