Several people gathered for the Tira Volunteer Fire Department Open House on Sunday afternoon. The kids, especially, enjoyed getting a close look at the fire trucks and other equipment. We appreciate our volunteer firefighters giving of their time to help protect our community.
Joyce Dodd would like to let everyone know that the next Bible study at the Tira Methodist Church is coming up on May 7th, at 1:00 p.m.
Sheila Boyd shared her heartfelt advice. She says, “Hello. I would like to remind everyone to hug your loved ones every chance you get. Don’t be afraid to say ‘I love you’ to them. We get caught up in our day to day routine and don’t think about the possibility of an unexpected event. Unfortunately, we have lost several family and friends just this year. This weekend I lost a long time dear friend, Sylvia Mohler. Then I heard of another friend Phillip Coleman. So, I wanted to express what was on my mind this morning. Tomorrow is not guaranteed….live today to its fullest. Make memories! God bless to all!”
Evelyn Horne had a busy weekend. She attended the North Hopkins Scholarship Dinner on Saturday night. On Sunday she went shopping in Lewisville, and then drove to her son’s home in Southlake, to help celebrate his birthday. While there she attended her grandson’s ballgame, where her son was his coach. She comments, “Very nice ball fields and we had shade, with nice weather.”
Yvonne Weir reports, “Wesley Weir attended the Cooper Junior-Senior Prom on Saturday night, with his cousin Ally Shelton. It was held at Charleston Sky. We enjoyed the lovely surroundings.” On Sunday Robert, Yvonne, and Wesley went to see Everly Rose and her parents, Dustin and Natalie Weir. Yvonne comments, “She is so beautiful.” She adds, “Elise Campbell won 5th in rabbit showing at the Hunt County Fair. They brought a good price in the auction. This is her second year in 4-H.” Elise is the daughter of Mike and Dacy (Weir) Campbell.
Chip helped with the Young Eagles event at the Sulphur Springs airport on Saturday. We went to the North Hopkins Scholarship Dinner that evening. The decorations, service, and food were wonderful. The Scholarship Board and the student groups and their leaders did a great job. After the meal, Chip and I went to Greg and Karon Adams’ home and enjoyed a time of fellowship with our Sunday School class. Our friends, T.J. and Jannie, who had previously been in our class for several years, were back from the Netherlands for a visit. We had not seen them in about 8 years. It was so nice of Greg and Karon to open their home for us to all get together.
