The Tira Food Pantry has received several donations lately. The council members want to express appreciation to everyone who has helped make food available to those in need.
The deadline to file as a write-in candidate for the Tira City Council is August 20th. Tira residents who have an interest in serving in this capacity, should contact me, Jan Vaughn, Tira City Secretary. My contact information is at the end of the column and my mailing address is 776 FM 1536, Sulphur Springs, TX 75482.
Yvonne Weir reports, “The Weir family has been busy, busy, busy. Our goddaughter Shanna Parkinson and her sons Aaron and Caleb visited us and spent 3 nights earlier in July. We went to a birthday party in Garland at Dustin and Natalie’s for their niece and nephew Lukkas and Ellie on July 22. We were excited to see our friend Sarah and her son Lucas, as well as Destri, Eben and family, and Mike and Dacy and their family. Debra (Natalie’s mom) did professional face paintings that were amazing, but got washed off in the pool. We brought our granddaughters Mena and Emmy home with us and they visited for 3 days. They attended Vacation Bible School in Cooper while they were here. We took them and Wesley to Shenaniganz in Rockwall on Wednesday to meet Destri. Robert, Wesley, and I attended the Renaissance fair and jousting on Sunday. It was to benefit Shadow Ranch . Wesley goes to therapeutic riding classes there.”
Our nephew and niece, Michael Horn, of Schertz, Texas, and Tonja Horn, of Chicago, Illinois, and their families spent a few days with Liz Steinsiek (Michael & Tonja’s mother) at her Tira cabin. Chip, Tiffany, Jaidyn, Kenden and I enjoyed getting to visit with them while they were here.
