Mick Petty reported that Rex Hargrave, formerly of Tira, passed away. I don’t have any details, yet. We want to express our sympathy to the family. Please remember his wife, Beth, and the rest of the family in prayer.
The Tira City Council met at the Community Center on Sunday afternoon. The group agreed to keep the Center closed through the month of June. Also, they discussed some needed projects and repairs and hope to get these taken care of during the closure. At the end of the meeting, council members, Tami Joslin, Yvonne Weir, Evelyn Horne, Joyce Dodd, and Janie Lewis, and Mayor Allen Joslin gathered around the flag pole to dedicate a plaque in memory of former Mayor John Hadley. He served in the position from May 1999 until June 2009.
The Tira Volunteer firefighters gathered at the fire station for training activities Sunday afternoon, also.
