Linda Andrasko visited with Sandra Wester and Suzan Miller from Saturday afternoon until Monday.  They enjoyed a late lunch at Lou Viney in Sulphur Springs on Saturday.  They enjoyed a lazy day after attending church services at Tira United Methodist Church Sunday morning.  Sandra and Linda shopped at VF Outlet on Monday morning and had lunch at Los Mochis before Linda returned to Henderson.

On Saturday Randy and Judy Roberts enjoyed watching three Easter egg hunts at their home.  Monica, Catan, and Cade Runyan came to lunch and then everyone enjoyed watching Cade find the eggs.  Later Sherry Smiddy, Powell Vickery, Brandy and Aysha Day, and Daylee Day-Fite came and they had another round of hunting Easter eggs.  Lesley and Addey Owens and Garrett Lockhart came later and Addey finished up the day finding the last of the Easter eggs.

Kadee Melton was at the Mineola FFA Livestock Show this past weekend showing her Herefords.  She came away with Reserve Champion Horned Hereford, Grand Champion Polled Hereford, and Reserve British Breed Champion.  Later in the day the Meltons were in Sulphur Springs at the Ranch Rodeo.

On Sunday, Kevin, Dee and Kadee celebrated Easter, which was also Kevin's birthday, with family members Larey and DeLeen Melton of Commerce, Kyle, Shanna, Kaitlyn and Kamryn Melton of Murphy, Dean and Margaret Eudy of Cooper, and Jeannie, Phil, Bryce, Baylee and Kylee Graves of Bonham.

Yvonne Weir reports, The Weirs, Campbells, and Mains spent Easter at the Weir Home and had a good day despite the rain. They had lots of good food and fellowship. Mike McNeil stopped in for visit in the afternoon. Dustin and Natalie are staying a couple days with us and Destri and Ryan spent Saturday night. On Friday, Helen Weir took Alice and Yvonne out for lunch. They were celebrating Alice's birthday.

Mick and Linda Petty were in Lake Dallas Saturday to watch their granddaughter, Reagan Humphrey, play in a basketball tournament.  On Sunday, their son, James Humphrey and grandkids, Reagan and Hesston, and Linda's mother, Fay Burns, and Billy Joe Clayton were at Mick and Linda's house to have Easter supper.

The Hopkins County Coyotes from North Hopkins competed in their first athletic event on March 26 at the Titus County Special Education Track and Field Meet in Mt. Pleasant.  Students competing in the meet were Wesley Weir, Jacob Salazar, Brittney Wylie, Lindsay Wylie, Cindy Day, Leslie Wisdom, Mitchell Hubbard, and Lewis Seamster.  All the participants received ribbons.  Shirley Evans is their coach and the assistant coach and teacher is Dorris Prunty.  Charlotte Craig drives the bus, Katrina Scherer is an aide, and Linda Skaggs is the nurse.  Parents attending the meet were Sandra Mattimore and Robert and Yvonne Weir.

The second meet attended by the Coyotes was sponsored by Rains Special Education.  The track and field meet was April 1 in Emory.  Shirley, Dorris, Charlotte, Katrina and Linda were all there working with the competitors.  Parents attending were Sandra Mattimore, Robert and Yvonne Weir, and David and Tonya Wylie.  Wesley Weir received a gold medal in the 50 meter dash and Brittney Wylie received bronze in the 50-meter walk.  Josh Curtiss was awarded a bronze medal in the 50-meter dash. Lindsay Wylie won a silver medal in the 50-meter dash.

Cindy Day won gold for the 100-meter dash and silver for the standing long jump.  Leslie Wisdom won silver in the 100-meter dash and gold in the standing long jump.  Mitchell Hubbard won gold in the 100-meter dash and silver in the standing long jump.  Lewis Seamster won silver in the 100 meter dash and gold in the standing long jump.  Their next meet will be in May. I appreciate Betty Weir sharing the news about these events with us.

On Friday, Chip and I took Morgan and Kenden Joslin to The Villages Resort on Lake Palestine. We spent the evening enjoying the slides, wave pool, and lazy river at the indoor water park. The next day the boys played tennis and participated in the kick ball game. Their team won and received free soft drinks from the resort snack bar. We all played miniature golf and then had a late lunch before returning home on Saturday. Delayne Vaughn, of Waco, came for a visit on Saturday afternoon and returned on Sunday evening.

After attending Easter services on Sunday morning, we gathered at the home of Malcolm and Tiffany Joslin for lunch, along with their neighbors, Bruce and Julia, and their family, and Lee Joslin and Chuck Olmstead. Morgan and Kenden hunted for Easter candy in the house after lunch, since the weather was too cold, wet, and muddy for an outdoor hunt.
