For the Lyle Lion's Dec. 1 Breakfast from 7 to 10 a.m., the staff is planning to use those proceeds to fund its annual Christmas Baskets. Besides the regular price of breakfast, they are encouraging participants to bring canned goods, non perishable food items or an extra monetary donation toward the program. This event will also have a Holiday Cake Raffle to help gain the much needed funds. The Lion's Club also sponsors the weekly senior luncheon every Tuesday, with the program starting at 11:30 a.m. and lunch at noon. Besides the community seniors, the lunch is open to all for $3.50 donation for those 60 or older and $6 for under 60 years of age. To drop off donation items beforehand call Joan Titus 365-2872.
Volunteers are needed at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1, to help decorate the small area where Santa will sit and greet the children to make for a more pleasant memory photo. Supplies are on hand; just a little expertise in home decor would really come in handy because the countdown is closing in on Dec. 3 when the children get to express their heartfelt wishes to Santa this year. The sheriff's patrol cars will be escorting him to the Lyle Activity Center between 6:45 and 7:15 p.m. Hot cocoa will be ready to warm the tummy and if anyone chooses to whip up and donate a batch of their favorite cookies to please the palate -- well that would be welcome too.
If you happen to overhear your child pour out their deepest desires to Santa, you just might be able to help the jolly old man by visiting the following weekend's Holiday Bazaar held at the log building at Columbia Hills RV Campgrounds, (on the road to The Dalles) Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 7 and 8.
