Fill out the survey

If anyone has used eyeglasses, hearing aids or old cell phones and wants them to go to a good cause, recycle them at the Lyle Lions Community Center. They will be glad to receive them and have a special box located in the lobby that is labeled for these items and is open on Senior Meal day every Tuesday during 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and again on the day I keep reminding you about: the First Saturday Pancake Breakfast, which is every month from 7 to 10 a.m. The items donated will be recycled by the Pacific NW Lions Recycle Center, where they will be cleaned and refurbished. The cell phones will be given to domestic violence victims for 911 calls only. If you care for your fellow man or want to do something good for your community, check out this worthy organization at their monthly meetings every first and third Mondays with a potluck dinner at 6 p.m. followed with their meeting at 6:30. Questions? Contact Dean Oldenburg at (509) 365-2921. The Lyle Lions Club is always looking for volunteers and new members. And remember, the Center is available for building rental for parties, showers, banquets, meetings, memorials, and the like. Contact Rose at (541) 806-1683.

The Lyle Film Club is inviting new members to join in January. The film club works like a book club except you don’t have to read anything. The club meets on the second Friday of the month. Each person/couple takes turns hosting. Snacks will be provided. If you are interested in attending, email

Come on, agree with me—Lyle is a great place with even greater people.
