HAM to serve ham


March 13, 2019

“March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb”—and if so, we might have a chance at a break in this weather. We believed the groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, when on Feb. 2 he did not see his shadow, and, as the legend goes, we’re in for an early spring. Well, we know how that has turned out. But if this weather lets up, and the roads are safe, consider attending (and joining) the Twin Bridges Museum. Their membership luncheon is on March 16 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. For your entertainment, Susy Ramm will enlighten you about the Sauter family and history of Lyle. If you choose to, give Barbara a call: (541) 993-5374.

Lyle resident’s hearts are saddened by the passing of two of their own in the last couple of weeks. Deepest condolences are expressed to families of Delmar Kendrick, whose services will be held March 23 at 2 p.m. at Gateway Presbyterian Church in The Dalles. He once owned the Lyle Merc, and after his retirement he mentored both Hood River and Lyle students. One thing remembered about Del was the airplane he built in his garage which was fondly named, “the other woman.” He loved his family, friends, and especially the Lord.

Secondly we also lost David Clear Cark, son of Denis and Sondra Clark. He lost his battle to cancer at the age of 52. His services will be held on his birthday, May 11, at the St. Peter’s Landmark Church in The Dalles. Both were surrounded by loved ones at their bedside.

The Lyle High School Honors and Advanced Math (H.A.M.) Club will be serving up a traditional ham dinner March 17 to raise funds for their sixth annual field trip to Math Day at the University of Washington in Seattle. Dinner will be served in the Lyle School Multipurpose room from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and includes ham and scalloped potatoes, salad, roll, and a drink. Tickets can be purchased from the school office at (509) 365-2211, from a student, or by emailing The cost is just $12 per person or $14 at the door, $22 for two people, or $10 each for groups of three or more. Kids 12 and under eat for just $5

In the midst of multiple snow days in February, Lyle Schools fired up the “A Team,” a free after-school tutoring program. In many school districts, parents have to pay to have access to tutoring for their children. Thanks to a Title I state grant, Lyle Schools is able to offer tutoring to students in grades six-12 for free, twice a week. The A-Team Program is for students who need a little extra support in understanding a concept or who need time to prepare for high-stakes exams required for graduation. It’s also for those who simply need a quiet and supportive place to focus on their learning. Because this grant is specifically for ELA and math, tutors will focus their efforts on those subjects, but if students have questions about other subjects, they are welcome to ask. The tutors are there to help our young people expand their learning.
