The annual Tira Homecoming is coming up on Sunday, July 5th. The program and Tira Cemetery Association business meeting will begin at 11:00 in the Tira Methodist Church. A covered dish luncheon will be shared at the picnic tables, following the program. We are hoping for a good crowd to gather to share good food and memories. Contributions toward the upkeep of cemetery are welcome and appreciated and can be given that day, or mailed to Tira Cemetery Association, c/o Floyd Payton, 1601 CR 4612, Sulphur Springs, TX 75482.
The Hillis family held their reunion at the Tira Community Center last weekend. I hope to have more to report on their activities soon.
Dakota and Robert Weir fished on Saturday, but didn’t have any luck. On Sunday Robert and Yvonne had a visit from Destri Weir and her friend, Eben, and Dacy, Elise, and Eli Campbell. Yvonne comments, “Robert had a good Father’s Day.” On Wednesday, Robert and Yvonne went to Grand Prairie to hear Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. Robert saw them in 1965 in Florida.
Chip and I took our grandson, Morgan Joslin, to Columbus, Mississippi last Friday, to spend a week at the Specialized Undergraduate Pilot Training Familiarization Course at Columbus Air Force Base. Chip and I drove south to Gulfport and spent the night. On Saturday morning went for a walk on the beach, and then drove along the Mississippi Gulf Coast on our way back home.
On Sunday, our daughter Tiffany joined us for Father’s Day lunch. Kenden and Jaidyn Joslin were with Malcolm on Father’s Day. Landon, Laiken, Rylan, Brailon, and Slaiden Joslin visited Malcolm and Tonya and Laiken’s parents on Sunday afternoon.
