I received word this week that the Aiguier Cemetery Association meeting will be held at the North Hopkins School Cafeteria, rather than the cemetery grounds, on Sunday, June 6. A covered dish lunch will be shared at noon, followed by a brief business meeting. Please make plans to bring a covered-dish and share a meal and memories. After lunch there will be a brief business meeting. Donations for the upkeep of the cemetery are always needed and appreciated. You can contribute that day or mail your donation to the Aiguier Cemetery Association, c/o Peggy Beck, Treasurer, 332 CR 3620, Sulphur Springs, Texas 75482.
The Tira Homecoming will be coming up on Sunday, July 4. The program will start at 11 a.m. in the Tira Methodist Church, followed by a pot-luck lunch at the picnic tables on the grounds.
The regular quarterly Tira City Council Meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 7, 2021, at 6 p.m.
Laiken Joslin picked up Dixie on Saturday to spend a few days with her family here in Tira. On Monday evening, Dixie and her brother, Slaiden, celebrated their May birthdays with Landon, Laiken, Rylan, and Brailon at Cooper Lake. Chip, Grace, and I went over for a visit and took Dixie and Slaiden their birthday presents. They’ve been enjoying swimming and playing games at their campsite.
Perry and Tiffany Gilbert and Jaidyn came from Malvern last Thursday for Slaiden Joslin’s kindergarten graduation. Afterward, we went out for lunch in Sulphur Springs, before they had to return to Arkansas that afternoon. Jaidyn had volleyball camp that evening and she and Tiffany had school on Friday. Also there for Slaiden’s graduation were his parents, Landon and Laiken Joslin, Laiken’s mom and brother, Leigh Ann and Kasen, and her grandparents, Randy and Fran Harris.
