Lions provide vision screening


October 25, 2017

This month the Lions Club has been very active with their many community betterment projects, one of which was Vision Screening testing at the Lyle Elementary School. Students from kindergarten, first, third, and fifth grades were tested. This is a great service that can find problems early in life to get them corrected as soon as possible. Also, during the month of November and the first week of December, they will be taking sign-ups for the annual Christmas Food Box Project. Individuals or families in need can contact (509) 365-2872. Anyone interested in making a monetary donation towards the Christmas Food Box Project can do so at the Nov. 4 Pancake Breakfast. Checks need to be made out to Lyle Lions and earmarked Christmas Food Box Project. Canned or nonperishable foods will be accepted at the November and December Pancake Breakfasts and every Tuesday at the Senior Meals luncheon. This organization is always ready to help those less fortunate in receiving correction devices for both vision and hearing. If you are in the need of a party place or an important meeting, they rent the building but want to inform the public their phone contact number has changed. The new phone number is: (541) 806-1683 or (509) 365-2921.

Even the pouring rain did not dissuade members and guests from attending the Twin Bridges Museum First Annual Members luncheon last Saturday. The delicious sandwiches were catered by Beneventi’s while the board members brought an array of extras to round out the meal. Officers were elected and it seems that everything must be running right for the vote kept the active executive board intact. The guest speaker, who gave an interesting and educational message, was Cal McDermid, Director of the Fort Dalles Museum.

The days are counting down to Christmas, folks. As much as it questions where the year has gone, the time for shopping and decorating is right around the corner. I know we have to get through Halloween and Thanksgiving, but to get a jump on the competition the Lyle Christmas Bazaar will give you a good start. There will be over 20 vendors there offering their wares so as to afford gifts for their own families, so it’s a win/win situation. If you have a skill that pertains to creating items that others may find a great present for their loved ones, there is still time to get a space. So get your glad rags on and head on down to the Lyle Activity Center on the corner of 3rd and Highway 14, Friday, Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday Nov. 4 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Contact Karen Beck at (541) 490-5673, or Laurece Bonham at (509) 365-2011.
