City of Lyle’s 150th Celebration cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic

The Lyle 150th Celebration Committee stated in a press release on Wednesday that after much consideration and with the well-being of the community in mind, the committee has made the decision to cancel the Lyle 150th Celebration, which was to have been held from June 26th-28th as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

According to the release, the committee took several factors into consideration concerning the cancellation, including what social distancing might look like in June, people feeling uncomfortable in any type of large group setting and bigger crowds with the Lyle School District’s All-School Reunion being a part of the weekend’s festivities.  

The committee stated in the news release that the celebration will now take place June 25-27th of 2021.
