Million Father March is on its way


August 23, 2017

Dads, did you know the tremendous influence you have on your child’s school experience? Here’s a chance to demonstrate to your children that you believe school is important and that you support their success: The Million Father March (MFM) by design is a community-driven event and is not restricted to fathers only. Grandfathers, foster fathers, stepfathers, uncles, cousins, big brothers, significant male caregivers, family friends, and other male role models are all encouraged to participate. In 2015, over 900 organizers in 581 cities across 40 states and 3 countries rallied the fathers in their communities to be more involved in the education of their children. Lyle Community School is proud to participate in this event and looks forward to seeing students and their dads (moms, you’re welcome too!) on August 28 by 8 a.m.

A report about last week’s fire: “8-13 Fire. Yesterday at 3:50 p.m., High Prairie Fire was paged for a mutual aid fire by Centerville. They had reports of multiple ignitions in Centerville district, including in the area of Warwick and Harms road. Chief Darland, upon arrival, determined that the west most fire was in High Prairie district. It was located at approximately 1211 Centerville Highway. The fire was seated north of the highway in steep terrain overlooking Swale canyon. With the help of multiple agencies including Lyle, Centerville, Rural 7, DNR, Scenic Area (USFS), and State Parks, the fire was contained at 1.71 Acres. Hand crews, engine crews, and one helicopter were involved in this fire. No firefighter injuries were reported, although some were exposed to intense smoke and heat. It was reported that these multiple ignitions were caused by a backfiring vehicle. The fires ignited without regard to the somewhat cooler temps and higher humidity we experienced yesterday. Keep this in mind when operating equipment near dry fuels.”

The visitors to the Twin Bridges Museum Yard Sale found many great treasures, which have found new owners to impress others with their great find. Thanks to those who worked before, during and after to make it a great success…and of course all the buyers who shopped and added the dollars to the museum’s depleting coffer. Next month the final fundraiser of the year will be their annual spaghetti dinner with raffles worthy of your dollar tickets. I’ll let you know more about that in the near future.
