The Tira Community Christmas dinner was held last Saturday night and was a great success. Thanks to all who participated, prepared food and encouraged the young people to attend. Santa and two elves came by, which was very popular with the little children and the young at heart.
The Tira Christmas Party will be held on Saturday, Dec. 5, at 6 p.m. at the Community Center. We encourage everyone to make plans to come enjoy an evening of good food and fellowship.
