Pastor David Larkin would like to invite everyone to a Christmas Eve service at the Tira United Methodist Church on Saturday evening, at 6:45.
Martha Payton send this report, “To those who have wondered about the ‘Old Oak Tree’, it was removed by the Highway Department due to dead limbs and declining health due to old age and drought conditions through the past several years. We will miss its wonderful shade, beauty and rustling leaves. It always reminded me of a poem by Joyce Kilmer, titled “Trees”, we memorized the poem in school many years ago.
Yvonne Weir reported, “The Weirs enjoyed Christmas at the community center with Robert’s sisters and families. Afterwards we came home and celebrated with our children and grandchildren. We opened gifts and then ate a Mexican supper. Dustin, Natalie, Maria, Sarah and Lucas spent the night. It was a good weekend.”
Jimmy and Janie Lewis hosted a family Christmas get-together at their home on Saturday, December 17th.
Chip and I visited Posey Baptist Church on Sunday evening and enjoyed their Christmas program and fellowship afterward. Our daughter, Tiffany, and grandchildren, Kenden and Jaidyn were involved with the presentation.
On Monday evening, Chip and I attended a Christmas party with friends, at the home of Keith and Francis Klein. Others present were Phil and Carla Kenley, Shirley Charles, and John Klein. Tiffany and I shopped in Rockwall on Tuesday, and then she and Jaidyn went with a group from Posey Baptist Church to the North Pole of Texas. On Thursday evening, Chip, Tiffany, Jaidyn, and I met friends, Dayne and Natali Lawson, of Point, for dinner in Sulphur Springs, to celebrate Natali’s birthday.
I want to wish you all a wonderful Christmas!
