Regina Payton is spending a few days visiting her mom, Martha Payton.
Rylan Joslin, son of Landon and Laiken Joslin, celebrated his 5th birthday over the weekend. He enjoyed having a friend over to spend Saturday afternoon and night with him. They roasted hotdogs and had a cookie cake that evening. On Sunday afternoon, Rylan was honored with a birthday party at the Tira Community Center. Several friends and family members gathered to help him celebrate and were treated to Laiken’s delicious carrot cupcakes. The kids had fun playing on the playground.
Elementary students at North Hopkins School enjoyed an Easter egg hunt and class parties on Thursday afternoon, before being released for the 3-day weekend.
FEC (Farmers Electric Cooperative) is hosting a “Hotdog Night” for the North Hopkins Panther fans at the April 18th game between North Hopkins and Cumby. FEC will be cooking hotdogs and handing out drinks and chips, all at no charge. The game begins at 4:30 p.m. Coach Tim Henderson reports, “Fans are encouraged to wear red as we play the biggest game of the year, with the district title on the line.”
Chip Vaughn accompanied Clay Hansford, teacher at Sulphur Springs Middle School, and the Destination Imagination teams to the state competition in Lubbock last weekend. The team Chip helps coach placed 2nd at the state level and will advance to the Global DI finals in Knoxville, Tennessee in May, along with another of the Sulphur Springs teams, which won first place in their category.
I want to wish you all a wonderful Easter and encourage you to attend an Easter church service on Sunday.
