I need to make a correction about the Tira Community Christmas Party. It is scheduled for the second Saturday in December, not the first Saturday, as previously reported. We are hopeful that conditions will allow us to gather safely at that time.

Robert and Yvonne Weir’s grandson, Nico, stayed with them from Wednesday night until Sunday morning, while his mother Destri was traveling in Maryland. Yvonne said, “We went to the park and the children’s museum in Commerce. We enjoyed his stay so much.”

Also, recently Robert, Yvonne, and Wesley went to Princeton to watch Eli, Dacy’s son, play soccer, and then they drove to Sunneyvale and met Destri, Eben, and Nico and Dustin, Natalie, and Everly to eat outside at Kearney’s and celebrate Destri’s birthday. Yvonne comments, “It was lots of fun.”

Jim and Sandra Vaughn, of Broken Bow, Oklahoma, visited Chip, Grace, and me on Sunday, Sept. 27. Our niece, Lana Hall, came by for a while, too. We all enjoyed being outside together underneath the shade trees.

Our great-grandsons, Brailon and Slaiden Joslin, spent Friday night and Saturday morning with us. Their brother Rylan had dental work on Friday and wasn’t feeling like coming with them. Chip’s sister, Linda Ellen Vaughn, of Dallas came on Saturday afternoon and spent the weekend with us. Our niece, Jana Rich, visited with us for a while on Saturday, too. Chip and I did some grocery shopping in Paris on Saturday afternoon and picked up supper at the Fish Fry to share with Linda and Grace. Linda prepared lunch for us on Sunday.

I always need and appreciate input from my friends to help keep me informed of news in our community. If you have any news pertaining to Tira residents, past or present, please contact me, Jan Vaughn, at 903-438-6688 or [email protected].
