If you like cooking and want new ideas or recipes, KLASAC invites you to a new kitchen venture by cooking together as a family and a community. You will receive a bag with everything you need to cook a meal and have the option of joining other community members via Zoom to cook together. If you are unable to join them or cannot access internet, you can still sign up by calling Sheila at (509) 316-9523 and leave a message or email klasaccoalition@gmail.com. You will receive written directions and access to a video so you and your family can still enjoy and cook a meal together. Sign up space is limited, so call and leave your contact name, phone number, address, and student’s name (if you have a child in Klickitat or Lyle School—only for delivery of the bag purposes).

The Lyle Community Council is asking for feedback from the community on a problem with the ongoing problem that’s plagued sailboarders, windsurfers, and fishermen for years. The BNSF Railroad has made it against their rules to cross the tracks and has set barriers to keep these sport enthusiasts out, stating safety precaution. The LCC’s Sandbar/River Access Task Force has been gathering information and want feedback from Lyle residents about how making a public access to the sandbar in Lyle at the intersection of Old Highway 8 and State Highway 14 and the mouth of the Klickitat River will impact the community. What impacts should be considered? Can the community support this moving forward? Give your impression, yae or nay and why, by emailing: lylecouncil@gmail.com.
