Regina Payton from Victoria spent a week visiting with her mother, Martha. Martha says, “We had a list of chores and repairs to be accomplished, lunch out a couple of days, even a trip to Paris, Texas and a picture of the Eiffel Tower. Also attended the council meeting on Tuesday night with dedication of the free food pantry in memory of Floyd Payton. Thank you very much and hopefully it will work into a very worthy cause. Liz Steinsiek invited us for a visit, tour of her new country home and a delicious glass of cold lemonade. A great asset for our community.”
The Tira Homecoming is coming up on July 2, 2017 at the Tira United Methodist Church and cemetery grounds. The program will begin at 11:00 a.m. inside the church, and then a pot-luck lunch will be shared at the picnic tables on the grounds. Make plans to come visit and share memories. Donations toward the upkeep of the cemetery are always appreciated and may be given that day or mailed to the Tira Cemetery Association, C/O Jan Vaughn, 776 FM 1536, Sulphur Springs, Texas 75482.
Chip and I took our great-granddaughter, Dixie, back to Kountze, near Beaumont on Saturday. Our granddaughter, Jaidyn, went along with us. After we dropped Dixie off with her mom, we went to Piney Shores Resort on Lake Conroe. We spent Saturday night and Sunday there and enjoyed swimming and playing miniature golf.
