Choir and Drama students deserve standing ovation


he Lyle High Choir and Drama students need a standing ovation for the great job of entertaining the large crowd at the Twin Bridges Museum’s Spaghetti dinner Friday night. They deserve a big Thank You as well as the two teachers, Mark Kindricks and Glenn Wood who accompanied them. A few brave students shared the lime light and gave readings of our community’s forefathers Fredrick Balch, and the Lyle Family both of which the cemetery is named after, plus one on Nora Lillian Parkes, which included a memorabilia display of her personal items, on loan from the museum from her great granddaughter, Barbara Sexton. If you received a call later that night, you were one of the lucky winners of the many great raffle items.

A phone number was omitted in last week’s column about who to call about the Holiday Bazaar coming up on Nov. 5 and 6. So if you have any questions the person in charge is Laurece Bonham 365-2011. She’ll have all the answers. Don’t miss this annual event that offers homemade items from A to Z; Aprons to Zucchini bread. This fundraiser benefits a win, win, win situation…besides being a great way to accomplish your Christmas shopping early; you’ll be supporting your local artists as well as the Activity Center.

The person to call for the Klickitat Trail Half-Marathon being held on Nov. 5 is Cindy Blumel, (360) 892-8444. The overlapping of these events, both being on the 5th, caused this old brain of mine to falter. This is also a fundraiser for the Activity Center.

One more shout-out to be on the lookout for those little ghosts and goblins that will be scurrying around town from house to house for those Halloween treats. Please be watchful when driving. Some of the costumes are just not as visible at night and presents a threat to the little ones. And if some of those little ones happen to be a wee bit older, don’t belittle them with statements like, “Aren’t you too old to be trick or treating?” Wouldn’t you be happier seeing them having this kind of fun than doing drugs or drinking? Heck, if I weren’t so arthritic I’d have me a big bag and be running house to house myself—especially with the promise of chocolate!
