Shirley Glossup would like to let everyone know that the North Hopkins Cemetery Association will have a business meeting on April 11th at 7 o'clock in the Cemetery Chapel. All interested parties are encouraged to attend.

Megann Findley of Waxahachie spent the week of March 28th with her uncle and aunt, Tommy and Patti Wiebold. Patti had taken a week of vacation, and she and Megann made a few trips to Dallas during the week for some tests that Patti had at Baylor Medical Center. Megann returned home on Friday, April 1.

This Friday, April 8th, marks the end of another 6-week grading cycle at North Hopkins School. Students will be dismissed at 1 p.m. on Friday. Parents of pre-kindergarten (Pre-K) students are encouraged to check with school officials about registering their 4-year-olds for the 2011-12 school year.

On Saturday, Tommy and Patti went to Forney to spend the night with Terry and Katie Boyer. They all went to the AMA Motocross races at the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington on Saturday night. Tommy and Patti had not been to the new stadium and said that it is worth a trip over to see it. Patti says, “It is very nice, lots to see while you are there. The large screen inside the stadium is truly a sight to see for sure.” She said it was like being at the old drive-in movies, although she thinks the screen is larger than what the movies used to have. On Sunday, Tommy and Patti returned to Tira and were able to get a lot of yard work done. She and Sandra Wester are working on their garden and still have a lot to do. Patti is glad the time has changed as they are behind, and now it is light enough to work outside after she gets home from her job in Dallas every day.

Morgan Joslin was in Austin Thursday through Saturday for the Junior Beta Convention. While in Austin they toured the state capital and also watched the “largest urban colony” of bats emerge from the Congress Avenue Bridge. Some 750,000 to 1.5 million bats make the bridge their spring and summer home.

Chip Vaughn was in Lubbock for the Destination Imagination (DI) Affiliated Tournament over the weekend. He accompanied the team that he and Johnny Wells coached. Congratulations are in order for the Sulphur Springs Middle School DI teams! Chip and Johnny’s team placed 5th in their division. Two other teams competed and placed 1st and 3rd in their divisions

I spent Saturday scrapbooking with a great group of ladies at the Farmers Electric Cooperative (FEC) building in Sulphur Springs. The FEC Relay for Life Team organized and sponsored the event as a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. We enjoyed good food, fun, and fellowship!
