What is Good Old Days?

Dear Editor:
A reporter from the Daily Camera was in town this past weekend and asked me what is Good Old Days? It made me think that with all of the emphasis on events and bringing visitors to Lyons, this event at its heart is about celebrating this small town. And what a celebration it was this year. I never thought that in a single day in Lyons there would

A grateful thank you

Dear Lyons Community,

On behalf of the Lyons Clarifier Project, Priscilla Cohan and I would like to thank Trustee Ed Bruder for arranging, and Parks and Rec. director, Dave Cosgrove, for the mowing and clearing around the Clarifier work area.

Lyons Gothic

Lyons Gothic

An anonymous chalk artist created this “Lyons Gothic” especially for the Outdoor Games, which were held last weekend. The sidewalk mural showed the iconic couple with kayak paddle and racing bib, and was located on the south side of Sandstone Park (near the Post Office).
