Lyle hosts Spring Carnival, Pioneer Days


April 19, 2017

Have you ever attended the Lyle School PTO’s Spring Carnival? Well, here’s your chance. This year it will be held on Sunday, April 30 from 1 to 4 p.m. Great cakes will await the lucky gambler who stands on the number drawn when the music stops. The book fair is for the avid reader to be taken to faraway places or enlighten their mind, plus various games to tweak the mind or challenge hand and eye dexterity. Game tickets are 25 cents each or five for a dollar. All of these plus interesting items will be raffled with tickets offered for a dollar each or eight for $5. This fundraiser is not only fun, but also supports different student projects.

Great news for long time Lyleites as well as the “Newbies”: a Lyle group is bringing back a past annual event called “Lyle Pioneer Days.” They’ve had a short time in their planning but are working fast and furious to schedule it for Saturday, May 27 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the Lyle Park. What used to be a whole weekend celebration will start out smaller to see how it goes. This year’s plans include a parade, car show, bounce house, live music, many contests and booths, as well as bringing back the favorite ‘Jail,’ where a person can have a friend arrested on specific charges, who in turn has to present bail for release. If you wish a booth or have ideas, please join them at their regular meetings of Mondays at 6 p.m. at the Activity Center. All finalities are yet to be determined. In support of this event, the Twin Bridges Museum has changed their opening day to May 27 also.

Speaking of which: past or present military families, the Twin Bridges Museum need your help. They are working on new displays for the seasonal opening day. Needed are any and all local military person’s photos, no matter the branch of service. The photos will be scanned and handed back to you so you do not have to part with the originals. They would like name, date, branch, and a brief military background of the service personnel to link to the photo.

We have a winner amongst us! Our own Beth Sauter entered a Facebook contest: “Color Your Classroom with Canon Contest” recently and low and behold, she won! Her first grade classroom at Whitson Elementary School received, “A brand new Canon color printer, 2 years worth of ink (a whole case!), several hundred pictures worth of photo paper packs and two reams of copy paper”: a total of $950.00 for her class. Although it is not Lyle School, we are still proud of Lyle’s Beth Sauter and happy for her students.
