The Tira Homecoming is quickly approaching. It will be held on Sunday, July 4th. The program and business meeting will begin at 11:00 inside the Tira Methodist Church, and then a covered dish lunch will be shared at the picnic tables on the grounds. Donations for the upkeep of the cemetery grounds may be given that day or you can mail them to the Tira Cemetery Association, c/o Jan Vaughn, 776 FM 1536, Sulphur Springs, TX 75482. We always appreciate the contributions.
Joyce Dodd reported that Georgia Smith made a donation to the Tira Food Pantry. Joyce added, “She, also, brought the American flag that Danny Rawson’s daughter donated to the Tira Community Center.” We want to express our appreciation to Georgia and to Sophie Markides, daughter of the late Danny and Judy Rawson and granddaughter of the late Dwight and Mary Rawson, of Tira.
