National Night Out in park at Lyle Aug. 2


Lyle lost another long time resident when Don Graves passed away on the 8th, at his home in Dallesport. He and “Boo” raised their children here and were active in many Lyle events. They nurtured a vineyard in Dallesport for many years and gave some young men their first jobs. He was a warm hearted man always offering a smile and a helping hand. He will be missed by many.

From Andrew Kelly, School Superintendant: “ On Tuesday, August 2, from 4 p.m.-8 p.m., residents of Lyle and the surrounding communities will be meeting at the Lyle Community Park to celebrate vital relationships with our neighbors, safety officials, and local businesses by partnering with Lyle Schools, KLASAC, OLESS, and Klickitat County Sheriff’s Department to celebrate National Night Out. This unique ‘community building’ event is intended to promote residents’ involvement in crime prevention activities, police-community partnerships, strengthening of neighborhood spirit as well as to send a message to criminals that crime is not welcome in our community!” and then; “We would love your assistance in whatever capacity that you are able, such as food preparation, non-alcoholic beverages, volunteer time, talent, or monetary contributions.” Contact person is: Retti Reppy (541) 979-6616.

Don’t forget the “All Lyle School Alumni Reunion” is just around the corner, Aug. 6. This year’s reunion will be on the night of the First Saturday Breakfast at the Lions Club. What an eventful day that will be; a hearty breakfast with all you can eat pancakes and then just when that hearty meal settles, on comes a catered meal at the Shilo Inn in The Dalles with all your alumni friends. It will be a great day to visit neighbors in the morning and then get reacquainted with old friends that night. Besides all that good food, there’s no meals to cook and no dishes to wash! If you did not receive your reunion registration in the mail please contact Barbara Sexton at (509) 365-5374.

Normally I don’t add personal ads to my column but one of our High Prairie neighbors is advertising he has fire wood for sale. Those of you who still use wood might be interested. “All oak, $75 cash per cord, tree lengths. Will load your trailer free from various piles, your choice. Approximately 12 cords available. You may cut and split on site. Splitter available for a small fee. Location: High Prairie, approximately 7 miles from Lyle.” Call Tom at 365-0010.
