The Tira City Council met at the community center on Tuesday night. Mayor Floyd Payton and council member Joyce Dodd took the Oath of Office for another term on the council. The council awarded a bid for tree removal and discussed other routine issues. Janie Lewis will be sworn in on a later date. She was unable to attend, due to her husband, Jimmy Lewis, just being released from the hospital, following a stay for double pneumonia. We wish Jimmy a full and speedy recovery.

The Aiguier Cemetery Association meeting was held on Sunday. About 50 people gathered on the cemetery grounds for a pot-luck lunch, visiting, and business meeting. The group voted to keep the same officers for another year — Charlie Vaughn, president; Betty Weir, vice president; Debbie Layton, secretary-treasurer; and Jan Vaughn, reporter. Charlie Vaughn, Perry Evans and Brandon White were elected for another term on the Perpetual Care Board. Other members are Robert Aiguier, Peggy Beck, Barbara Penny, Nancy Potts, Chip Vaughn, Betty Weir and honorary member Vaden Richey.

Yvonne Weir and Brenda Allen went on a road trip from May 18 to May 27. They traveled to the Grand Canyon in Arizona then into Utah to see Bryce Canyon and Zion Canyon. They then went through Monument Valley on the way to Four Corners — the only place in the United States where four states (Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado) come together at one place - and Mesa Verde State Park. On the way home they stopped in Oklahoma City to visit the National Memorial and Museum at the federal building bomb site and the Cowboy Museum. Yvonne says, “The weather was great for the trip and the scenery was beautiful. We especially liked Zion Canyon. We rode the helicopter over the Grand Canyon and took a jeep trip in Zion.” On Sunday the 29th, Dacy Weir Campbell and Elise and Eli came to visit Robert, Yvonne and Wesley. Dustin and Natalie Weir visited from Monday until Wednesday and enjoyed boating at the lake. Morgan Joslin celebrated his 13th birthday on Thursday, June 2, with family at Juan Pablo's in Sulphur Springs and then we came back to our house for birthday cake. Linda Ellen Vaughn of Dallas arrived on Friday night and spent the weekend with us. Grace Vaughn was also here on Saturday afternoon and Sunday. We all attended the graduation of Chrissy Hall, daughter of James and Lana (Vaughn) Hall on Saturday afternoon at North Hopkins School, and then went to John and Linda Vaughn's home for a surprise birthday party for Linda, which was hosted by her children and their spouses, Jason and Patty Vaughn and Josh and Nicole Vaughn. On Sunday Chip, Jan, Linda Ellen, and Malcolm and Tiffany Joslin and the kids went to the Aiguier Cemetery Association meeting. Grace chose to avoid the heat and stay at the air-conditioned house.
