Twin Bridges Museum opening soon


August 2, 2017

August has us hitting the ground running. To start, we had Lyle and surrounding communities celebrating ‘National Night Out’ with fun, food and frolic at the Lyle Park yesterday. The best way to create a safer community is to get to know your neighbors and your local businesses. The Lyle School District is teaming up with KLASAC to sponsor the event. Dallesport community will celebrate this on Tuesday Aug. 8 from 6 to 8 p.m. on the Dallesport school campus.

And again, it’s time to remind you of the Lions First Saturday Breakfast on Aug. 5, from 7 to 10 a.m. You know the drill. If you’re looking for good food at a great price for the whole family, it’s the place to be. Made-to-order eggs or omelets, with a slice of ham and never ending pancakes—all while visiting your neighbors. Also the Lions want to let everyone know that their regular meeting on Monday, Aug. 14 has been cancelled.

Then a couple of hours later at noon, on Saturday, Aug. 5, the doors will be open at the Twin Bridges Museum. This gives you the opportunity to see the way things used to be in the bygone days of our local pioneers, whose descendants graciously donated or loaned great family heirlooms. See the new military display of photos and souvenirs that our local heroes have collected and graciously loaned.

All Lyle middle school students are invited to Cougar Quest 2017, happening the first two weeks of August. This leadership development camp is open to all students entering grades 6, 7, or 8 during the 2017-2018 school years. The two-week camp began Monday and is running through Friday, August 11. There’s no charge to Lyle students, thanks to funding through the state School Improvement Grant. This event will give students a chance to learn more about themselves and others, work with many of the Lyle staff outside of a classroom setting, explore our amazing Gorge community and set goals for the upcoming school year. On Friday, Aug. 4, Cougar Quest will feature an overnight “lock-in” on campus and middle school student-only dance. On Friday, Aug. 11, the last day of program, students will have a graduation and promotion ceremony, followed by a family potluck. To register, go to the district webpage at Questions? Please call or email Rettai Bruni or Andrew Kelly at (509) 365-2211, or or

The next meeting for reviving the Lyle Community Council will be held on Sunday, Aug. 6, at 5 p.m. at the Lions Club. If you wish that Lyle have a liaison between the residents and the County Commissioners, and you have great ideas to improve Lyle and help your neighbors, by all means make yourself present and share your ideas. Getting involved has a way of making one feel a real and important part of the whole, instead of just looking out for number one. This is an event where you can bring your children, and I’ve heard rumors that there might be pizza.
