Time for the bird count


A message from Bob Hansen: “Folks, spring is here, which means it’s almost time for our annual Klickitat County Spring North American Migration Count. We began these counts in 2017, twenty-one years ago. Can you believe it? Randy Robinson has done a great job of tabulating our recent results. Click on to see how we have done over the years. Here are last year’s (Spring 2017) results: Once again, thanks Randy and all of last Spring’s participants...Please let me know as soon as possible if you will be able to participate this spring, May 12. Also, please let your friends and other birders know about our efforts and invite them to join us. Happy Birding, Bob.”

A long standing member of the Lyle Lions Club, Dean Oldenberg wants to shout out “a big thank you to the Lyle High School Leadership Class for cleaning the Lions Club parking lot and washing the windows at the community center on Earth Day. We appreciate their work there and around the community!”

Have you been procrastinating about getting old Betsy’s winter grime off of her pretty fender skirts? I got a date and time for the Pioneer Days fundraiser Car Wash. It’s going to be May 12 at the Sandbar & Grill from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. This is a good time to get the job done and not have to pack a bucket of suds or get soaking wet. The committee members will be scrubbing bubbles to get those cars all pretty! Cost will be by donation.

And yes, it’s time again for the Lions First Saturday Breakfast this coming May 5 (7 to 10 a.m.). The May Pancake Breakfast is honoring the “White Cane Awareness Day” where a special donation jar will be available for donations that help support various sight programs sponsored by the Pacific North West Lions Foundation. It will provide free health screenings for adults and children to check for any eye related problems, high blood pressure and diabetes, which can lead to blindness or other vision problems. Special grants are also provided for patients who are unable to pay for sight treatment such as cataract surgery, prosthetic eyes, special magnifying equipment, computer software for Braille instruction for the blind and visually challenged, and much more. So glean a little from your coffer and help a neighbor while enjoying a great breakfast!
