Our community looking for volunteer firefighters. If you (or anyone you know) are interested, please contact Chief Johnny Martin at 903-243-3247. No prior experience needed. You will be trained and your gear and equipment will be provided. We are in need of manpower to safeguard Tira and Hopkins County.
I didn’t receive any other reports this week, so you get to hear about my family again!
Tim and Lori Vaughn hosted the Vaughn family reunion in their backyard on Saturday. Eighty-four descendents and in-laws of the late Alfred and Fannie Vaughn gathered to enjoy visiting and a delicious lunch. Tim barbecued several types of meat and guests brought sides and desserts. The youngest and oldest grandchild of Alfred and Fannie were among those in attendance – Tim Vaughn and Dortheal Denny. The group decided that a cooler day would be better, so the event is scheduled for November 5th in 2016.
Brailon Joslin, son of Landon and Laiken Joslin, celebrated his 2nd birthday with family and friends at his home on Saturday afternoon. The kids enjoyed playing in the kiddie pool, on the swing set and mini trampoline, and several enjoyed playing baseball. Guests were treated to hot dogs, chips, drinks, and chocolate cupcakes.
Our son, Delayne Vaughn, came on Friday night and was here for the reunion and birthday party, and then returned to Waco on Saturday night. Grace and Linda Ellen Vaughn and Tiffany, Kenden and Jaidyn joined us for lunch on Sunday. Morgan spent the day with his dad, Malcolm Joslin, and Tonya. They shopped in Canton and Tyler.
Tira Mayor Floyd Payton reports that over the past few months two folding tables have been taken from the community center. There was no sign of a break-in either time. We are requesting that the tables be returned soon.
I always need and appreciate input from my friends to help keep me informed of news in our community. If you have any news pertaining to Tira residents, past or present, please contact me, Jan Vaughn, at 903-945-2190 or 903-438-6688 or [email protected].
