Get your smoke detectors checked


October 31, 2018

There’s still time for you to get your smoke detectors checked out and perhaps replaced for free. The Lyle Fire Dept. and the Red Cross are in cahoots to making you safe and sound for not only the winter months ahead, but for all year long. Give yourself and family peace of mind by calling (509) 365-2500 and setting up an appointment to get your home as safe as possible. Oh, yes—they have carbon monoxide detectors as well, so give them a call. I did, and now I feel like I’m better protected and can sleep assured I’m safe. They also have good instructions about setting up an escape plan on what to do in case of emergencies.

After that hearty breakfast on Saturday, mosey on down to the Lyle’s Christmas Craft Bazaar. Although it starts the day before, there will still be bunches and bunches of great items on Saturday to set you on the right track toward getting your Christmas shopping done early. So set your mind to: Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Nov.2 and 3, at the Lyle Activity Center, corner of Hwy 14 and 3rd St. Around lunch time you can treat yourself again with their lunch special of the day. How’s that for not having to cook or do the dishes? Any questions, call Karen Beck at (541) 490-5673.

Start your Saturday right by joining your friends at the Lyle Lions’ November Pancake Breakfast on Nov. 3.

This month a special jar will be available for early Christmas Food Box Project for monetary donations, as well as a box for non-perishable food items. This campaign will continue through the next two ‘First Saturday Breakfast’s’ as well as every Tuesday at Senior Meals during the month of November and the first two weeks in December. Let’s get out there and help those less fortunate than ourselves.

As long as we’re talking along those lines; there is a free training program coming up on Nov. 9 and 10 and Nov. 16 and 17, Fridays 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Some of the topics are emergency preparedness, first aid and disaster psychology, fire safety, and light search and rescue. This is all sponsored by Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) members who are trained to do initial assessment of situations in case of natural disaster that may be helpful to their neighbors until first responders can arrive. If interested in attending, please contact Lynette Black ( with your name, e-mail, phone, and address.

I want to brag a little: the First Baptist Church in Bingen packed 809 shoeboxes for the Samaritan Purse Project, Operation Christmas Child on Saturday. The boxes are filled with toiletries, school supplies, clothes, toys, trinkets, and treasures and sent all over the world to enlighten a child to the Grace of God. That’s a very good count for that small congregation.

It’s nice to see people that have enough pride in their property to keep their yards neat and orderly and pleasant to drive by. Personal pride builds community pride, and Lyle is showing that more and more.
