William and Joyce Dodd had five generations of their family at their home on April 1. Joyce shared, “We met our new great-great-granddaughter, Brookelynn Rayne Foster for the first time. She is 4 months old. Her great-grandma, Tonja Lucas, was here also to meet her for the first time. Brookelynn was here with her grandparents, Maegan and Matt Childress, her mother and dad, Ray and Alyssa Foster, and her uncle Ethen Shelton. Brad and Matthew Dodd came by to meet her, too. She is such a precious new addition to our family. We really enjoyed having them here for lunch and a short visit before they had to return to their home in Arkansas.”
Robert, Yvonne, and Wesley Weir drove to Princeton on Saturday to watch Eli Campbell play soccer. He made two goals and his team won. The met back up with Mike, Dacy, Elise, and Eli at El Fenix in Greenville for lunch.
We received some food and cash donations for the Tira Food Pantry this week. We always want the contributors to know that we appreciate their help.
Chip and I went to Arkansas on Saturday to watch our granddaughter, Jaidyn Joslin, play volleyball. We picked her up, along with our daughter, Tiffany, and son-in-law, Perry, in Malvern and went to Lakeside School in Hot Springs. Jaidyn and her team played well and won their game. Perry’s son and daughter-in-law, Logan and Hannah, got to the game late, but we all went to lunch together at On The Border before Chip and I returned home that afternoon. John Vaughn came over and stayed at our house with his mother, Grace Vaughn, while we were gone.
