We want to express our sympathy to the family of Travis Eugene (Gene) Lewis, son of the late Barney and Edna Lewis. He passed away December 19th in Armuchee, Georgia. Rachel Lewis reports that a memorial service will be scheduled for a later date. Siblings are Wanda Clayton, Dorothy Hargrave, Gary Lewis, Judy Lewis and Richard Lewis. Please be in prayer for the family.
The Tira City Council would like to express their appreciation to the North Hopkins Beta Club and Danna Lewis, their sponsor, for their generous donation of food for the Tira Food Pantry.
Linda Petty had back surgery on Monday, December 11th, at Methodist Surgery Center in Addison. Mick reports, “The back surgery went well, but she had some heart issues on the 2nd day after the surgery, so our two-day stay turned into a 5-day stay. I think all is well now and we go back for a follow up this Friday. We can’t thank our family and friends enough for their help and prayers.”
Regina Taylor, of Sulphur Springs, Brenda Allen, of Yantis, and Yvonne Weir and I, from Tira, went to Hot Springs, Arkansas on Friday. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Fisherman’s Wharf, overlooking Lake Hamilton, and then drove around downtown and up the mountain. That evening we went to Garvan Woodland Gardens for their beautiful Holiday Lights event. Later we had a delicious meal at the Bleu Monkey Grill. On Saturday, we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast at the hotel, and then spent the day shopping before returning home.
I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
