Lyle all-school reunion Saturday; Bryan turns 80, celebration Aug. 10


Our deepest thanks to all the firefighters that rallied around our area last week and won the battle over those wildfires. And know that the community provided what we could to make them comfortable, (the school provided them showers, while the activity center opened its doors to provide sleeping quarters) was just a token in return.

Last reminder about the all school reunion this coming Saturday, Aug. 2. If you haven’t gotten your registration mailed, there will be time at the door of the Portage Grill in The Dalles; but without the total, caterers will not know how many of what kind of meals to prepare. You might have to take an ‘old cold tater and wait’ so to speak. The next morning, plan to attend the breakfast at the Lion’s Club in Lyle.

After all the goodbye hugs and promises of keeping in touch with those classmates, walk (or drive if you’re as old as I am) a couple of blocks over to the Twin Bridges Museum. Even with the man hours and small financial backing, the partners have succeeded in making changes, inside and out of displays with items that pioneer families have donated. Step by step the building is transforming from its original church structure to a welcoming museum to be proud of.

Family and friends are encouraged to attend to honor and celebrate the 80th birthday of Lyle’s lifelong resident Jack Bryan. It will be at the Lion’s Club, Sunday Aug. 10, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The only present he desires is your presence at his party. Let’s fill the building and show him how special he is to all of us.

KLASAC (Klickitat-Lyle Against Substance Abuse Coalition) has started a youth Tuesday afternoon summer program. The “young-uns” will volunteer at the Lion’s Club Tuesday luncheon before an afternoon of fun activities at the Lyle Activity Center. Chaperones are Julie and Johanna! Questions? (509) 840-3330 Sounds like a great way to get our kids involved in the community and intertwine with not only their elders but their peers as well, while instilling self pride.

I saw a buzz of activity with bodies at work painting the front of the Lyle Activity Center this week with some balanced on scaffolding while others busy on the ground below. The work done looks absolutely amazing; far better than the original paint of by gone years. With continued financial help and volunteer hours we are going to have the best activity center in the Gorge!
