Santa lifts spirits at Activity Center


December 6, 2017

The Lyle Activity Center was abuzz Sunday, Dec. 3, with children, parents and a merge of volunteers from MCPAL, OLESS and the Twin Bridges Museum to make the children's eyes sparkle to see their favorite hero this time of year. Yep, Santa came to hear their wishes and have his picture taken with them. The complementary photos will be posted, for family members, at the Lyle P.O. bulletin board. From a couple of months old to 17-year-olds sat on Santa's knee. Santa brought Mrs. Claus this year and she gave the children books and candy canes. There were cookies and cocoa waiting for everyone; all in all, it was a special night.

If you get the paper in time...Lyle Schools invites the entire community to celebrate the season with their students and staff for a delightful winter music concert featuring students K-12 grades. The concert takes place in the Lyle School gymnasium starting at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 6. Now in its second year, their renewed music program is better than ever under band director and alumnus Mark Kendrick. They encourage everyone to bring a non perishable food item to donate toward their food drive.

Congratulations are in order for one of Lyle's Alumni-George Cooper. He has always been active in Lyle School activities. He will have his name commemorated by his last endeavor with the Secondary students and dignitaries on Dec. 15 at 12:15 p.m. They will hold a grand opening of Lyle School's new weight room, by officially naming it the "George Cooper Health and Fitness Center." It is just like him to step up to the plate and follow through with physical and financial support for one of his main loves: Lyle School and the kids.

Now is the time to start your list of New Year's Resolutions for 2018. I can suggest one in particular-pick a worthy cause and volunteer! There are plenty of organizations out there and you can choose how much you wish to be involved, in one or more. Such as; the new Lyle Community Council meeting is scheduled for Dec. 10 at Lyle School's multi-purpose room, 6:30 - 8:30 pm; The Lions Club is a great place to give a couple hours of your time. Just stop in during one of their meetings which are on the first and third Mondays, and see the variety of events they offer. Interested in preserving local heritage? The Twin Bridges Museum meets every second Tuesday and 4:30 p.m. and is always in need of willing entities, even if it's just a day with a feather duster! Of course the Fire Department is a great place to make a difference in your life and possibly even save lives. The school is in need of mentors for the students, and about kids-think of the KLASAC (Klickitat-Lyle Against Substance Abuse Coalition). They are a bit newer, but going strong to keep students away from Substance Abuse and showing them positive lifestyles. Call Rita Pinchot at (360) 952-3569. There is also the Grange, hospitals, libraries, veteran's homes, and the list goes on. Your time can be even more valuable than your monetary donation.
