Nothing like a budget discussion item on the agenda to clear out a room! There were only five members of the public in attendance at Monday night’s Board of Trustees (BOT) meeting, and none of them stuck around to take in the presentation and discussion of the December 2012 financial statement. Too bad, because in addition to there being a new sheriff in town, there is now officially a new Finance Director too, and from the timber of

To the Lyons Community,
I’d like to personally thank all of the blood donors who came out on Easter Sunday to support the second annual Lyons Community Foundation Blood Drive.

Monday was April Fool’s Day however, the weather was not fooling when it was so great Easter Sunday. We hope all enjoyed Easter. The Fire District’s Easter egg hunt with Mr. Bunny was great with lots of kids and lots of prizes. Churches were filled with worshipers happy that the Lord “arose” so many years ago to save us from our sins, and give us something to “look” to at all times.

Lyons residents, Elizabeth Lennert and her husband Eric, knew that they wanted to re-model their 1970s-era home, and thought there must be something better than 1970s energy use. As a part of their re-model process, the Lennerts decided to get a home energy assessment from EnergySmart. Based on recommendations from their EnergySmart advisor, they decided to upgrade the insulation in the walls, attic, and in the floor and crawl/space.
