The Tira City Council will meet at the Tira Community Center for the regular quarterly meeting on Tuesday, September 6th. The public is always welcome and encouraged to attend.

Robert and Yvonne Weir’s daughter, Destri, and her family, Eben, Nicholaas, Mena, and Emmy spent the weekend visiting with them. On Saturday, the all went to Dacy and Mike Campbell’s home in Caddo Mills for Eli’s 7th birthday. Yvonne comments, “The brisket was great!” She adds, “On Sunday, we all relaxed and enjoyed the new puppy.” The Weirs were also at the Campbell home on August 5th for Elise’s 9th birthday party. A big crowd was there to help her celebrate.

Kim and Lee Beck just returned from vacation – two days in Washington D.C., two days in North Carolina and four days in Virginia visiting family and seeing the wonderful east coast beaches. Kim says, “Our trip home was eventful – our 3-hour return trip took 13 hours. Our plane in Virginia had an engine that would not start. They tried to get a part flown in, but it did not work out and they rerouted us to LaGuardia in New York and then to DFW. What a haul!”

The principals and superintendent at North Hopkins report a great start to the school year this week. Be sure to check the school website for upcoming events. There will be an informational meeting on the Tax Ratification Election (TRE) on Tuesday, September 5th, at 7:00 p.m. in the school cafeteria.

Chip and I went to San Antonio on Wednesday evening, August 9th. I had training there on the 10th. After the training we shopped at Market Square and enjoyed a delicious meal at Mi Tierra Café. On Friday, we shopped and enjoyed riding the river taxi. We had a wonderful lunch at Landry’s Seafood House on the Riverwalk. We drove to Waco on Saturday and our son, Delayne, treated us to lunch at Texas Roadhouse, and then we went to his house for a visit and Chip trimmed limbs off his house.

Tiffany, Kenden, and Jaidyn went with us to Holly Lake on Friday, August 18th.  We had fun swimming, playing miniature golf, board games and watching movies at the resort. On Saturday evening, we enjoyed a great meal in a beautiful setting at Taste of Italy on Lake Hawkins. We packed up on Sunday morning and returned for church.
