Tira Mayor Allen Joslin reports that the Tira Community Center will remain closed during the month of July. Some updates and repairs are being done while it’s not in use.
The Tira Food Pantry is still being stocked for those who are in need of some assistance with food.
Wesley and Yvonne Weir attended a youth rally at First Assembly of God in Cooper on Friday night. Yvonne reports, “There were skits and musical numbers by the youth from four churches.” On Saturday, Brenda Allen and Yvonne attended a women’s meeting and luncheon at the church.
We enjoyed visits with our great-grandchildren over the weekend. Dixie, Rylan, Brailon, and Slaiden came for a few hours on Friday afternoon. On Saturday, Laiken took Dixie to meet her mother for the return trip to their home in Sour Lake near Beaumont. The boys came and fished on Saturday, and then they came back on Sunday and had lunch with us and played for a while.
We didn’t see any spectacular sunsets from the Sahara dust, but we had a beautiful sunset on Sunday evening, after the rain had cleared the air over the weekend.
We are disappointed that we won’t be having the Tira Homecoming this year. We hope that we can have a good crowd on the first Sunday in July next year. I hope everyone has a good 4th of July weekend.
