Tira Council Members Joyce Dodd, Tami Joslin, Sherry Smiddy, Yvonne Weir and I, City Secretary Jan Vaughn, met North Hopkins ag teacher Christin Daugherty, Superintendent Dr. Darin Jolly and incoming Principal Brian Lowe at North Hopkins School on Friday, March 31, to pick up the food pantry that FFA students made. We appreciate them providing the labor for the project. We are working toward getting the pantry up and going soon. We want to express our gratitude to Judy Moore, with the ReachOut Program, for helping with donations of food items for the project.
The North Hopkins FFA Stew and Auction is scheduled for Thursday, April 27, at 6 p.m. Make plans to come out and support the students and have some good food and fun.
Yvonne Weir reports, “Sarah Therault, Lucas and friend Brandon spent Saturday [April 1] with the Weirs. They enjoyed feeding the fish and playing outside.”
Destri, Eben, Mena, Emmy and Nicolaas arrived this past Friday night for a visit with Destri's parents, Robert and Yvonne Weir. Destri and Eben left on Saturday for a date and the kids stayed with “YaYa and Papa” until Sunday. Dustin Weir and his niece, Maria, came on Saturday and spent the night. Dakota and Wes were also there. Their guests left on Sunday and, Yvonne comments, “It was a quiet house.” Robert and Yvonne ate in Cooper on Thursday, where they ran into Rick and Judy Petty and had a nice visit with them.
Our great-grandsons Rylan, Brailon and Slaiden spent Friday night and Saturday with us, while their parents worked on remodeling their bathroom. Tiffany Vaughn and daughter Jaidyn attended a vacation Bible school workshop in Longview on Saturday. That night, Chip, Tiffany and I enjoyed barbecue and live music at Fat Boy's in Cooper.
