Pep band debuts Friday


August 30, 2017

Family and friends of Larry Hart will meet at his Memorial Service on Saturday, Sept. 2, at 11 a.m. at the

Pleasant Hill Cemetery (Appleton Cemetery), half way between Appleton and Glenwood Canyon Rd that goes into Fisher Hill Rd. Larry served our country as a Vietnam veteran in the Special Forces and will receive full military honors at his graveside service. A potluck is planned following.

Lyle Community School is inviting the community to the debut performance of their newly formed “Cougar Community Pep Band” at the Lyle vs. Stevenson-Carson football game on Friday, Sept. 1. They are also in search of mentors for these novices because one of the hardest things for young people just starting to learn an instrument is sticking through the “bad” long enough to get “good.” Being in the company of an adult who plays an instrument can provide youngsters the encouragement to continue playing. Community members who play woodwinds, brass or percussion instruments are encouraged to team up with Lyle’s music students to bring the music to Lyle’s home football games and selected winter basketball games, too. Let’s all get together and support not only our team, but the new band as well.

Well folks, it’s that time again—can you believe that August is already gone and it’s not long before fall will be upon us? Always start the month off right by having breakfast at the Lion’s First Saturday Breakfast. The meal is plentiful and the eggs are cooked just the way you like it, with plenty of juice or coffee and those delicious never-ending-pancakes. You won’t find this great of deal anywhere else. On top of all that you have sociable discussions with great neighbors. And as a quick reminder; their regular meeting for Sept. 4 has been cancelled due to Labor Day.

Still have your eclipse glasses? I decided to donate mine to the Twin Bridges Museum. Just think—50 to100 years from now, visitors will point and laugh at how primitive they are. That cardboard safety eyewear will go right next to the 3-D glasses for a few of the movies I’ve attended. The museum is now open from noon to 5 p.m. each Saturday through September. If you haven’t visited this year, time is running short, so please check out the latest military display as well as new items donated this year—plus its new air conditioned atmosphere!
