Laughs, math and pancakes

 


If you weren’t at the Lyle Hotel last Saturday evening you missed a great night of laughter. Two upcoming comedians, Jeremiah Couglan and Don Frost, shared time on stage and exchanged friendly banter with the audience attending the “Dinner, Drinks and a Show.” The food was declared so great that one of the entertainers wanted to take the chef home, and the entertainment exceeded all expectations. So don’t miss the next Comedy Night, on March 18, for some good old-fashioned belly laughs. Might be wise, and never too early, to make reservations: (509) 365-5953.

The Lyle High School Honors and Advanced Math (HAM) Club will be serving up a traditional ham dinner March 4 to raise funds for their annual field trip to attend Math Day at the University of Washington (UW) in Seattle. Dinner will be served in the Lyle School Multipurpose room from 6 – 8 p.m. and includes ham and scalloped potatoes, salad, roll and a drink. Tickets can be purchased from the school office at (509) 365-2211, from a student or by emailing john.bister@lyleschools.org. Cost is just $12 per person, $22 for two people, or $10 each for groups of three or more. Kids 12 and under pay just $5. Attendees will have the opportunity to bid on silent auction items—primarily gift certificates to restaurants, including Sizzlers and Monagon’s Pancake House—during the dinner. Pies in engraved commemorative pie pans will be sold as well. Twenty-seven high school students, including some Wishram students, and several chaperones will be making the trip. The first year, only nine students participated; this year they plan to return via Snoqualmie Pass and tour Perry Technical College and Heritage University in the Yakima area. They need our support folks, so let’s help fill their financial needs as we fill our tummies.

At their last board meeting on Feb. 16, the Lyle Schools Board of Directors voted to change the regular time and meeting date beginning with the March 2017 meeting. The board will now hold regular monthly meetings at 6 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of the month. The next meeting will be March 28 at 6 p.m. in the Lyle Schools Board Room, 625 Keasey Avenue, in Lyle. The remaining meetings for this school year will be April 25, May 23, June 27 and July 25. These dates are posted in both the Lyle and Dallesport post offices each week before the meetings and can be found on the Lyle Schools website, http://www.lyleschools.org.

February is always a short month so the First Saturday Lions Breakfast snuck up on me. On March 4, as usual, you will get the best bang for your buck and enjoy the company of your neighbors. The event opens for the early birds at 7 a.m. and serves until 10 a.m., so come and get ’em while they’re hot: great made-to-order omelets and never-ending pancakes. Mmmm good.
