News from Jennifer Machado, the Lyle School District coordinator, (to Sara Sanderson): This year the Lyle School district has a couple of really cool things going on. It has initiated a calling system that will allow school representatives to call everyone that would like to be notified of events that may be happening at the schools (i.e. fundraising dinners, open houses, etc). If any community members would like to be added to the call list, they can either call the school or email their contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, they have launched a newly redesigned website at www.lyleschools.org .
Don’t forget the great breakfast at the Lion’s Club on Saturday, Oct. 5 from 7 to 10 a.m. The Lions always put an effort into serving you the best breakfast for a nominal fee. Made to order omelets, ham and eggs and never ending pancakes await the hungry visitor. They too are a group of volunteers that return the funds back into the community by aiding the hearing or vision impaired residents, as well as scholarships for Lyle graduates and filling the Christmas boxes of food each year.
The next OLESS meeting will be on Oct. 7 at 7 p.m. at the Activity Center. Anyone with community spirit and the desire to improve your neighborhood are urged to attend and become involved if only just for your ideas and input. This is a very civic oriented group of volunteers with only the betterment of Lyle and its residents their goal.
The Twin Bridges Museum invites you to its monthly meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 6 p.m. in the basement. Do you have any old photos that you would allow the staff to copy and return to you on the spot? Have you come across old family heirlooms that you would like to share? The museum displays items “on loan” as well as donated articles and would encourage you to honor your ancestors with a special exhibit.
It’s not too early to mark your calendar for the upcoming Annual Christmas Bazaar that will be held at the Activity Center on Nov. 8 and 9. This event grows each year and it appears this one will be no different.
A new organization is being launched in the prevention of substance abuse in our local area.

If you would like to join them in this endeavor, please contact County Coordinator Barb Klinger of the Klickitat County Health Department, 493-1558.
