The Tira Volunteer Fire Department is planning to participate in the "Hot August Nights" barbecue cook-off at the Civic Center on Aug. 22. The event will be from noon to 7 p.m. and will include music, food, fun and games. Everyone is encouraged to attend and enjoy the food and fun and support the local fire departments.
Malcolm, Tiffany, Landon, Morgan, Kenden and Jaidyn Joslin, Delayne Vaughn, Chelsie Edwards, and Chip and I left on Wednesday for Branson. While there we enjoyed the rides and shows at Silver Dollar City and the swimming pool and other amenities at the Silverleaf Holiday Hills Resort. We had a delicious meal at Shorty Small’s (famous for their baby-back ribs) on Friday night and celebrated Delayne’s birthday, which was on August 1st and Malcolm’s birthday, which was on Aug. 4. On Saturday night Chip, Delayne and I visited The Landing, along the river, and watched the fountains and fire display during a musical concert on the boardwalk. We all toured the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum on Sunday before returning home that night. We did experience some rain during our trip, but the weather was mostly cool and pleasant.
Due to shortage of space this week we’ll pick up with John Long’s journey into “Switzerland and the Valley of a Thousand Waterfalls” in a future News-Telegram.
