Bring in that old cell phone


February 28, 2018

While heading off to the great First Saturday Breakfast at the Lion’s Club on Saturday March 3, you might want to bring along any old cell phone lying around the house. Along with providing a delicious meal, they are joining the Pacific NW Lions Recycle Center who is heading up a new project of collecting used cell phones to be cleared of any personal data and refurbishing them to be distributed to domestic violence victims for emergency 9-1-1 calls. There’s a drop box titled, “Recycle/ Eye Glass & Hearing Aid,” located in the Lyle Lions Club lobby for them. The Lions club is open every Tuesday for Senior Meals from 10 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. and every first Saturday of each month, during the Pancake breakfast from 7 to 10 a.m. You can get two things done early that day—and your soul will have the satisfaction of doing a good deed. You’ll be glad you did!

Ahoy maties! The ship is expected to pull alongside and the pirates will swing aboard and start ransacking everything! The Klickitat School is preparing for their annual deluge of pirates for the costume contest at the Fundraiser Pirate Carnival. The looting will begin on March 11 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Klickitat School Gym. There will be treasures galore at the silent auction and a hearty clam chowder and chili to warm your belly, plus root beer floats, a bake sale, and cotton candy for just a few coins from your coffer. Admission is free, and tickets to games are only a quarter a piece. So don your eye patch and peg leg, Maties, and swing on over to the action.

Grab your “this-day-and-age” calendar and jot down a Lyle Pioneer Days fundraiser. Then practice jumping up and yelling Bingo! Yep, there’s going to be a Bingo Night, held on the following Saturday, Mar. 10, at the Lyle Activity Center from 2 to 5 p.m. Special Events like the Pioneer Days come on fast as the days and months fly by in a flash, so join the fun while funding this revived Lyle tradition; and help make it the very best one ever.

I’m glad to see the rain. It has dissolved all those horrendous icicles inside the tunnels. Every time I go under them my shoulders come up as I think about the roof of my car and visualize what that stuff did to the Titanic.
