Clean-up campaign set for Earth Day

Two different Clean Up Days-Lyle School District Leadership Students are rockin' their way to WE Day (a regional leadership/motivational conference and concert) in Seattle on May 3. To earn admission, they need to complete a community volunteer project, and participate in a worldwide project. They're starting out with a Community Cleanup Campaign in Lyle on Earth Day, April 22. This follows the Lyle Cleanup Day by just over a week, but the structure is different. The kids will fan out in the community to help local homeowners and businesses with miscellaneous tasks that need to be done to spiff things up. Students will also take garbage bags and pick up the litter and trash they come across along the way. If enough students and community volunteers turn out, the group will consider sending groups to Dallesport, too. If you want to join in the fun, meet at the lower parking lot of the school at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, April 22. After wrapping up around 2:30, everyone's invited back to the school for a barbecue. Come one, come all!

Do you have your photography, paintings, drawings, arts and crafts, fiber arts, cooking, baking, needlework, quilting, sewing, canning, and candy making ready for the Goldendale Grange mini-fair at the Grange Hall on E. Darland, in Goldendale? Beginning on Tuesday, April 10, you can bring your items to the hall at 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. and on Wednesday, April 11, from 7 a.m. to 9a.m. when the hall will close for judging of the items. The hall will reopen at 12:30 p.m. for the community to stop in. There will also be a presentation of grange history on display. Keep your wallet tucked away because there will be neither admission fee nor any vendors. Winning entries of Best of Show or Best of Class can have their item advance to State Grange in June. Contact Lucille Bevis at 773-9122 during the day or Pat Sajdak, Mt. View Grange, (509) 538-2126.

You were waiting for it, weren't you? Yep-it's time again for the First Saturday Breakfast at the Lions Club. This one is on the 7th of April. It's from 7 to 10 a.m. for that great all- you- can- eat pancakes and your made-to-order omelet plus a slice of ham...mmmm, good. The measly price you have to pay is turned back into the community in the various ways those great people choose, like that wonderful Egg Hunt they sponsored for the children the day before Easter.

Don't forget the fundraiser for the Lyle Clean Up. It is scheduled for April 14 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the bus parking lot on SR14 in the middle of town. No fees, except donations are joyfully appreciated.

I wish to express my thoughts about April 1, 2018. On this day we find two kinds of people. Those who honor our Lord Jesus for sacrificing his life for us, and the April Fool who does not believe in Him and jeopardizes their eternal soul. But then of course this is only my opinion, and I'm sure many will not agree, so I usually keep it to myself except for a few good friends who accept me with all my flaws and misconceptions-although my belief in God is neither one. So, may God bless you all on this April Fool's Day. Some may need more than others, but we all need His blessings. (I like the statement going around on Facebook: "Only two entities gave their all for us-the fallen American Soldier and the Lord Jesus.")
