The Tira Community Christmas Party will be coming up soon. It’s scheduled for Saturday, December 9th, at 6:00 p.m. at the Community Center. We will gather to share a meal and time of visiting with our neighbors. Brisket will be provided and residents are asked to bring side dishes and/or desserts. We will be collecting canned goods for the Tira Food Pantry. Santa will be stopping by to visit with the kids. Make plans to come enjoy the food, fun, and fellowship.
The Tira City Council would like to express appreciation to the North Hopkins Elementary students for the canned goods. Tira Food Pantry was one of several organizations to benefit from the food drive at the school.
There will be a regular quarterly Tira City Council meeting on Tuesday, December 5th, at 6:00 p.m. Following the meeting, the group will decorate the Community Center for the Christmas party. The public is always welcome and encouraged to attend,
Blake Adams and Chelsea Houser were united in marriage on Saturday, November 18, 2017. The wedding was the first event to be held at the Shaw Cottages and Event Venue in Tira. Dona Shaw, Blake’s cousin, is the owner of the new business and everything went wonderfully under her direction.
Landon, Laiken, and Rylan Joslin went to Beaumont last weekend to pick up Dixie for the Thanksgiving holidays. They drove to Conroe on Friday night and stayed at Piney Shores Resort that night and the next day. On Saturday evening they went to the football game to watch Dixie (6) and the other little cheerleaders, and then they returned to the resort. They drove back to Tira on Sunday. Brailon and Slaiden spent Friday night and Saturday with Laiken’s aunt, Rhonda Harness, and family, and then stayed with us Saturday night and Sunday. Tiffany, Kenden, Jaidyn, and Chip’s mother, Grace, had lunch with us. Rylan and Dixie came to play for a while that afternoon.
