Tira News February 3, 2017

I received word that Steven Vickery passed away on Thursday evening, following a battle with heart problems. Funeral arrangements are pending. A Pancake Breakfast fundraiser to help his family with medical expenses is scheduled for Saturday morning, February 4th, from 8:00 to noon at the Hopkins County Central Fire Station, next to UPS on South Texas Street. Please keep his family in your prayers. Steven’s father, Powell Vickery, is the mayor of our community.

We, also, want to extend prayers and sympathy to the family of Wilma Ruth Vaden Brice. She was buried in the Tira Cemetery on Saturday, January 28th.

Robert, Yvonne, and Wesley Weir met Dacy, Elise, and Eli Campbell at Shenaniganz on Sunday afternoon to play games and laser tag. On Monday night Wesley played basketball at Hoop Dreams, sponsored by the Pilot Club. Yvonne reports, “It was fun for everyone.”

The Cross Spur Cowboy Church (953 County Road 4759, Sulphur Springs) would like to invite everyone to their annual “Sweets for Your Sweetie” auction, on February 12th at 10:30 a.m. All proceeds go to their youth group.

Rylan, Brailon, and Slaiden Joslin spent the night with us last Friday, while their parents, Landon and Laiken, had friends over to play games and visit around their fire pit.

James and Vickie Longino picked Chip and me up on Saturday evening, January 21st, and we all went to Cooper and enjoyed a delicious meal at Tejano’s Mexican Restaurant on the square. We came back to our house and had a good visit, before the Longinos headed home.

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].
