Last reminder for dinner


September 25, 2019

With all the conflicting meetings with the 30 condos project, the Lyle Community Council decided to postpone their monthly meeting until Tuesday, Oct. 8, at 6:30 p.m. at Lyle School, lower level in the Board Room.

This is the last reminder for the annual Twin Bridges Museum’s Spaghetti Dinner/Silent Auction that’s coming on Sept. 27 from 5 to 7 p.m. Auction items this year range from fine local wines to OMSI tickets, a hand-maid quilt to a Willamette River cruise. Not to mention all of the baskets full of diverse products. And don’t forget about that autographed Seahawk football I’ve been telling you about. Beneventi’s spaghetti/silent auction Tickets can be purchased from members or at the door. Dinner for one is $10. And for the whole family is $50. Remember how good that spaghetti was last year!

Farmer’s Market is still going strong and parks at the Lyle Park every Friday afternoon from 4 to 6 p.m. Here’s your chance to get great fresh fruits and vegetables every week without having to leave town.

As my deadline for this column is Sunday, I had no way of thanking (by proxy) the earth angel who filled my back steps on Monday with beautiful fabric for my sewing project. I sew for the Operations Christmas Child/ Samaritan Purse Project/Shoebox Project that the Billy Graham Foundation that was started many years ago. My small contribution is making dresses for girls and tank tops for boys. With all the disasters here in the United States and around the world, there are so many children in need of the supplies that fill these shoeboxes. The First Baptist Church in Bingen, where I attend, has set this year’s goal to fill over 800 boxes. I not only thank this recent anonymous earth angel but all those who have supported my endeavors and still do. I’m sure our Good Lord will reward you with even more blessings than you already receive.

Lyle and Dallesport area residents wish Elma Brashers a very Happy 102nd Birthday on Sept. 20. When asked about her secret to longevity, she said she trusted in the Lord and that He had blessed her with a great daughter-in-law (Muriel Krusow) who she lives with (in Dallesport)and takes very good care of her. She enjoys, and looks forward to, going to the Senior Lunches in Lyle on Tuesdays and says they celebrated her birthday that week. The family is planning a family dinner for her on her special day.

It is with a heavy heart that I have to report the passing of two of our local residents last week. John Banks of Dallesport, a member of the Sundowners RV Club, passed away while traveling on his vacation back east. And Lyle’s own Jack Bryan lost his daughter Lisa Bryan Griffith to an automobile accident near her home in Woodlawn. Services for Lisa will be held at the Lion’s Club, Saturday, Sept. 28, at 11 a.m.
