It's getting to be that time again. Articles, event notices, etc., are being compiled for the next issue of Lyle's quarterly newsletter, "To The Point," which is due out Oct 1, and is distributed to the "What's Happening in Lyle" e-mail list. If you are not getting weekly updates of "What's Happening in Lyle," then you are not on the list. If you would like to be added, you can send your request to LyleCommunity@gmail.com. Your email address will NOT be shared with anyone else, or be used for anything other than to inform you about events or issues in our community. You may request to be removed from the list at any time. Articles needed about upcoming events, updates on your organization's doings, creative writing, poetry, photographs, etc., would be appreciated. Contributions from students in the elementary, middle or high school too. This is Lyle's newsletter. Glenda Lovejoy has been essential in editing, managing the layout and some editing. If any edits are done to your piece, she will send it back to you for approval first.
