Start your countdown for Dec. 3 for your children to greet Santa when the sheriff's patrol cars escort him to the Lyle Activity Center between 6:45 and 7: 15 p.m. Bring your cameras for some lasting memories. Hot cocoa and cookies are planned.
At the last OLESS meeting on Monday night, it was determined that one of the rooms would be chosen to be taken off the rental roll for remodeling. The room will get a new paint job and the drop ceiling removed. Please keep in mind that volunteers will be needed to offset the labor cost but as of this date no schedule has been set. If you like to be destructive, or constructive and have frustrations you wish to release, this would be a great opportunity to expel them.
The Lyle students hosted a free dinner for the residents to inspire a get-acquainted evening. It was well received and is just one of the many events that the children are planning. On Halloween, they went door to door handing out candy to the homes showing a willingness to participate in the holiday tradition.
