GOOD NEWS! Several neighborhoods of town will be going home this weekend. Yea, for us, and Yea for the Town Staff and all their co-horts for working so hard to get us back home.

Welcome Home!

By Lyons Bluesologist, David McIntyre

About Town -October 17, 2013

Woe is me (us)! A month ago Lyons was forever changed. Its people (2047) were upset with flooding waters, rousting us out of our homes up to the school and church on to higher ground. All 2047 of us were told we had to leave town; no services, no sewer, no water, no electricity, no gas, and no
