The quarterly meeting of the Tira City Council is scheduled for Monday, December 7, 2020, at 6 p.m. at the Community Center.
The annual Community Christmas Party has been cancelled due to the risk of COVID-19 exposure. We hope to have a big party next year.
Joyce Dodd, speaking on behalf of the Council, would like to express appreciation for the “people who help keep our pantry going with their generous and heartfelt gifts of food and money to help those who are having to struggle due to loss of jobs during this pandemic.”
We want to express our sympathy to Debra Wood and her sister, Barbara Cockrum. They lost two cousins less than three weeks apart. Debra reported, “Bonnie Johnston of Enloe passed away on October 28th and her sister Sandra Watkins of Cooper passed away on November 14th, due to COVID complications.” Bonnie’s funeral was held on Monday, Nov. 16, at the Delta Funeral Home. At the time of Debra’s report, Sandra’s funeral arrangements had not been made. Please remember the family in your prayers.
Yvonne Weir shared that her daughter and granddaughter, Dacy and Elise, visited on Sunday and they all went to Justa’s Barn and got a few bargains.
Our great-grandsons spent a few hours with us on Saturday evening. They enjoyed fishing and playing on the riding toys outside and coming in to play electronic games.
I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very safe and happy Thanksgiving!
