The Tira Community Christmas Party is coming up on Saturday, December 6th, beginning at 6:00 p.m. Brisket will be provided. Residents should bring side dishes and desserts. We are also collecting canned goods (preferably gallon-size) for the Meal-A-Day program in Sulphur Springs. Santa Claus is planning to stop by and visit with the youngsters and the young at heart. Make plans to come enjoy a time of visiting with your neighbors.
The Tira City Council will meet on Tuesday, December 2nd, at 6:00 p.m. at the Community Center. Following the meeting the group will decorate the center for the Christmas party. The public is always welcome and encouraged to attend.

Chip and I spent Sunday evening through Tuesday morning at the Lake 0’ the Woods resort on Lake Palestine. We enjoyed driving around the area and seeing the beautiful fall foliage and just relaxing. We had delicious burgers at the East Texas Burger Company in Mineola on the way home. Our family will be gathering for Thanksgiving today (Friday).
I’m sure most everyone in Tira was busy with Thanksgiving activities and will have lots to report for the next column.
