Martha Payton reports that the Tira Methodist Church will be saying "goodbye" to their pastor, Ed Dodd, on June 30. He will begin serving Roxton United Methodist Church on July 1. The Tira congregation wishes him well in his new location.


The annual Tira Homecoming is coming up on July 7. A program and cemetery association meeting will begin in the Tira Methodist Church at 11 a.m., followed by a covered-dish lunch at the picnic tables on the grounds.

Floyd and Martha Payton enjoyed a visit from their son, Brad Payton, between Fathers Day and Martha's birthday. Regina Payton visited on Thursday through Sunday morning, also. Martha comments, "We had dinner at the fish fry in Paris on Friday evening, then a drive by the beautiful sunflower field on Highway 24 west. A beautiful sight to behold."

Bill Taylor visited Sandra Wester Tuesday morning. They enjoyed lunch together in Cooper and visited with Richard and Oleta Bearden before he returned home.

The descendants of Alfred and Fannie Vaughn will be having a family reunion at North Hopkins School Cafeteria on July 20, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The group will enjoy a pot-luck lunch around noon. Please pass this information along to any relatives you know, who may not see this notice.

Tiffany, Morgan, Kenden and Jaidyn Joslin, and Chip and I were in Broken Bow, Okla., on Saturday afternoon for the wedding of Alex Vaughn and Candy Sanchez. Alex is the son of Johnny and Cindy Vaughn and grandson of Jim and Sandra Vaughn. Several others from the Vaughn family were also there, including Alex's great-grandmother, Grace Vaughn.

Chip and I took Morgan, Joslin and Eric Fox (Civil Air Patrol cadets) to Bastrop on Tuesday for CAP camp, and then we went to Somerville and spent the night with Larry and Dorothy Fitzgerald before returning home. While there, we enjoyed visiting, eating, driving out to see the deer around the lake and, of course, playing cards!
