The Tira City Council meeting has been rescheduled for Sunday, Dec. 6, 2020, at 4 p.m. at the Tira Community Center.
William and Joyce Dodd had a small gathering for Thanksgiving lunch on Thursday. Those attending were Jerry and Tonja Lucas, Robby Dodd, Brad and Matthew Dodd, Trenton, Melony, and Kanyen. Joyce reports, “We shared Thanksgiving with our son Michael McNiel, and our granddaughters Mandi Owens and Maegan and Matt Childress and children Alyssa, Gavin, and Ethan Shelton. Like most families, our Thanksgiving this year was a very different experience, but, at least, we were thankful to all be well and to be close in spirit.”
Also, Joyce shared that she and William became great-great-grandparents on Nov. 30. Brookelynn Rayne Foster, is he daughter of Alyssa, Joyce and William’s great-granddaughter, and Ray Foster. She weighed 6 pounds 14 ounces. Joyce comments, “She is a beautiful little girl. She makes five generations on our side of the family.” She adds, “Grandparents are Matt and Maegan Childress, and Johnathon Shelton. Great-grandparents are Jerry and Tonja Lucas, James and Jeannie Owens, and Jerry and Judy Shelton. Great-great-grandmother on her great-granddad’s side of the family is Charlene Owens, making five generations on that side of the family, also.”
Our family celebrated Thanksgiving on Friday evening. Our daughter Tiffany and all of her family were here, other than Morgan who had to stay in Tulsa and work. Our son, Delayne, and his friend, Edwin, came for the evening.
On Saturday afternoon Chip and I took our great-granddaughter, Dixie, to Mount Enterprise to meet her granddad and return to her home near Beaumont. She had spent the week with Landon, Laiken, Rylan, Brailon, and Slaiden Joslin. Grace, Chip’s mother, stayed with her granddaughter, Lana Hall, while we were gone.
