The Tira City Council will meet at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 6, 2017, at the Tira Community Center. Following the meeting, the group will be dedicating the community food pantry in memory of former Mayor Floyd Payton.

Mick and Linda Petty spent this past weekend in Bolivar, Missouri, attending their granddaughter Reagan Humphrey’s graduation from Southwest Baptist University. Reagan received a Bachelor of Science degree with a double major in Accounting and Psychology.

The Aiguier Cemetery Association will have their annual homecoming on the cemetery grounds on Sunday, June 4th. A pot-luck lunch will be shared at noon, followed by a brief business meeting.

The families of the late Bob and Myrtle Lawrence met on May 20th and 21st for their annual reunion at the Tira Community Center. Georgia Smith reports, “We had the smallest group that we have ever had, partly because none of the families in Wichita Falls came.” She adds, “We lost a member of our family. Patsy Lawrence passed away. They were all missed and we said a prayer for the family.” Those attending were Joyce Johnson of Mesquite, Charlene Lawrence of Fort Worth, Mark, Julie, and Darby Lawrence of Grand Prairie, Danny and Judy Rawson of Denton, Sophie and Constantine Markides from Houston, Chandler Smith and friend, Cody, from Forney, Helen and Jimmy Smith and Kyleigh Williams from Greenville, Gene and Ida Bratcher of Sulphur Springs, Mary Rawson and Troy and Georgia Smith of Tira. Georgia says, “We hope to have more next year.”

I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and take time to remember those who gave their life for our freedom.
