Car AND Truck: Santa Night in Lyle found this little boy expressing that he wanted TWO things... with a visual of two fingers and verbalizing clearly he wanted Santa to know that he wanted a car..AND a truck. Families may pick up photos of the Lyle children with Santa at the Lyle Post Office.

The Town Hall meeting held at the Lion's Club will be covered in another article in this newspaper so I will only add that it was a standing room only crowd that threatened at times to get out of control. The tempers that flared were successfully doused by the effort of facilitator, Dan Smith. The Friends of the Gorge plan to hold another meeting on Dec. 11, with an Open House forum from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Activity Center. The outstanding question is whether Lyle residents and 'adjacent property owners' are in favor of the new trail.

Santa Night was a great success with many children expressing their desires to the one man who can perform miracles on Christmas Eve. The Lyle Community Council's complimentary photos taken of each child with Santa are available from the bulletin board at the Lyle Post Office.

At the monthly OLESS meeting, Barbara Sexton and Norm White were re-elected to their positions on the board, and Laurece Bonham was elected to serve on that board for two years. Officers will be elected from the initial executive board.

A local business, 'Sayler's Road House' and a live band will be joining forces to hold a fundraiser for the family of a mother with three small children who lost their home to a fire this past summer. She is currently unemployed but taking a CNA course to improve the family's situation, and has no family able to help her out for this Christmas. The gathering will be held at the Columbia Grange off Old Highway 8 on Sunday, Dec. 15, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. A chance to purchase a photo of your child on Santa's knee is planned to help fill the donation purse. For an evening of live Christmas music, coffee, cocoa, and cookies, plan to attend. If you wish to donate without attending, contact Shannon Bren at (509) 365-2170 or email at

Speaking of the Grange; they will be holding their monthly meeting on Saturday, Dec. 14, starting at 11 a.m. followed by a potluck and fellowship in the basement at noon; then the Sundowners will hold their annual Christmas Dinner there on Sunday, Dec. 15, at 1 p.m. The Grange building is a valuable asset to the community that needs a little TLC; with the current members trying to beckon lifetime members back, in order to help with its preservation.
