Yvonne Weir reports that “last weekend was a red letter one.” They got to see all five of their children and their grandchildren, too. Dacy, Elise, and Eli Campbell joined Robert , Yvonne, and Wesley at the Embassy Suites Airport South, where they spent the night. They enjoyed swimming and playing on the elevator.

Joanna Comer would like to get several Tira residents to participate in a community garage sale on October 2nd and 3rd. Folks would set up their sales at their homes and chip in on a newspaper ad. Each sale site would need to have a large, bold sign. If you are interested in participating, please leave a message for Johanna at 903-945-3075.
The North Hopkins Alumni Officers met on Tuesday afternoon and made plans for the upcoming school homecoming, which will be held in the school cafeteria on Saturday, October 10th. The event will begin at 4:30 p.m. with registration and Bingo. A barbecue meal will be served at 5:30. Following the meal, guests will be treated to a video presentation honoring the Classes of 1965, 1975, and 1985. A group of former North Hopkins students (and others) gather on Monday nights to jam and they will be sharing their musical talents with the group at the homecoming. All former students, staff members, and their guests are encouraged to attend. We are asking that everyone help us pass the word.
