More bazaars coming

 

November 6, 2019



A last reminder: the Lyle School District Board of Director’s regular November meeting schedule has been changed and will be held on the third Wednesday, Nov. 20, instead of the fourth Wednesday of the month, due to the Thanksgiving holiday. The December meeting will be on the 18th; both meetings are at 6 p.m. in the school’s board room on the lower level of the school

On Saturday, Nov. 9 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., the 7th Annual Klickitat Trail Run Marathon-Half Marathon & 5 K will be at the Klickitat J. Lynch Community Center at 92 Main Street in Klickitat. The celebration will have lots of fun prizes and hot soup for the running participants! It begins at 11 a.m. with Medallion awards and prize drawings. A variety of hot soups will be served, and there will be chili and pizza and festivities, as well as three $500 Scholarships given out by drawing! For Online Registration & Detailed Race Info: https://ultrasignup.com/register.aspx?did=64004. More questions? Contact race director Lynda Esaacson at (509) 365-5380 or email lyndae@gorge.net.

If you are an avid bazaar shopper or vendor and missed the Lyle Craft Bazaar last weekend, fear not. There are several in the near future. The Dallesport Christmas Bazaar at their community center will be on Dec. 6 and 7, with all proceeds donated toward their very own Dallesport-Murdock Fire Department. For information on that one, call or text Evelyn Biggs (509) 310-9130. And St. Peter’s 41st Bazaar will be Nov. 23 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at St. Mary’s Academy at 1112Cherry Heights Road in The Dalles. For information on this one, Email Laurie @ stpeterbazaar@gmail.com I am pretty sure that these are just the start of a very active role in Christmas Shopping Extravaganza this season. I’m not sure where my quilt is—I was sure I was going to win at the Lyle Bazaar this last weekend. After all, I did buy a raffle ticket!

On a personal note, a whopping 864 shoe boxes were filled and made ready for transport from the beginning destination of the First Baptist Church in Bingen to the children all over the world on Oct. 28. For those who don’t know, it is a project founded by the Billy Graham Foundation named Operation Christmas Child, Shoebox Project, or the Samaritan Purse Project—to provide a shoe box filled with items such as learning tools, personal hygiene, toys, and activity books. I have been blessed by completing 216 dresses and tank tops for the children. If you are interested, check out any of the names above for the organization on the internet, and I’m sure it will direct you to their website. I’m pretty proud of our little church!
