The Tira Cemetery Board met at the Tira Community Center on Tuesday night. The deed to an additional four acres from the Lynn Chapman estate was presented to the Tira Cemetery Association by Mark Chapman. The group would like to express their appreciation to the Chapman family for the generous donation.

During all the ordeal with our son's hospital and rehab stay, and with us being in Dallas and Waco with him, I received some correspondence from Billy Moss, grandson of the late Bud Garner and D.M. Garner of Tira, but I hate to admit that I have misplaced his letters. He did express that he misses his friends in Tira and would appreciate your prayers. I hope to hear from him and be able to share more news soon.

Rick and Judy Petty went to Sulphur Springs to watch the Lady Cats play on Friday night. It was Senior Night and their niece, Reagan Humphrey, was one of the recognized athletes. Judy says, “We are really proud of her and her accomplishments.” Mick and Linda Petty, Reagan's grandparents, also commented that they are extremely proud of her! On Saturday, Rick and Judy went to Cedar Park to visit with Chris, Robin, Tyler, Trever and Trey Petty. They helped Trey celebrate his sixth birthday, which was on Jan. 9, but they just got around to having his party. That night they all went to the Dallas Stars hockey game.

Sandra Wester enjoyed lunch and visiting with Virginia Miller, Betty Weir and JoNell Willis at Los Mochis in Sulphur Springs on Thursday. Patti Wiebold and Sandra Wester went to the campus of Texas Christian University in Fort Worth Saturday morning to attend a tournament for club volleyball teams. Patti's niece, Sara Miller, was playing in the tournament for Trinity University in San Antonio. Sara's mother, Nora, an air traffic controller in New Mexico, had been on a job-related trip to Oklahoma City and took the long way home to watch Sara play in the tournament. Patti and Sandra enjoyed the games and visiting with Nora and Sara between games. Barry and Carolyn Miller of Mesquite came to watch their niece play in the afternoon games, and they also enjoyed visiting with them. On the way home Patti and Sandra stopped to eat at In-N-Out in Rockwall.

Morgan Joslin, a member of the Civil Air Patrol, attended Color Guard Training at the Sulphur Springs Airport on Saturday. Kenden Joslin attended Super Start! in Arlington on Friday evening and Saturday, along with other fourth and fifth graders from First Baptist Church in Sulphur Springs.

Chip and I attended a Super Bowl party at the home of Brad and Janiene Fain, along with other members from our Sunday school class. The ladies didn't watch much of the game, but we enjoyed the snacks and visiting.
