I'm sorry to report that there won't be a Tira News column this week. I only received one news item, so I will use it next week.
We want to express our sympathy to the family of Penny Valentine. She passed away on Saturday. Her funeral was held on Tuesday, at West Oaks Funeral Home, with the burial in the Tira Cemetery. Friends at the Kountry Kafe’ (formerly Penny’s Cafe’) hosted a luncheon for the family.
