Floyd and Martha Payton enjoyed a visit from their daughter Regina, from Port Aransas, on Sunday afternoon through Tuesday morning. Her visit was cut short
due to some unexpected business in Fort Worth. She will return to Victoria on Wednesday evening.
Martha reports, “The Tira Methodist Church was blessed to have Belinda Fisher, from Houston, to visit on Sunday. She is the niece of Dorothy Hadley and Mildred Englander of our community.”
Tira volunteer firefighters responded to a grass fire in the Cherry Grove community early on Sunday morning.
William Howard Long, of Nellysford, Va., was in Tira this weekend to visit family and celebrate W. S. (Pete) Long’s 96th birthday and Tommy and Frank Long’s birthdays, as well. Other guests were Carolyn Long and John Long of Tira; Reid Long of Austin; Sammie Bedford of Tyler; Juli and Sam Long of Sulphur Springs; and Brian, Jeannie, Austin and Autumn Brewer of Sulphur Springs. They gathered at Mr. Pete’s house and cooked dinner on Saturday night. Tommy says, “We enjoyed reminiscing with Dad about our many birthdays and other events of the past.”
Chip and I went to Broken Bow, Okla., on Thursday evening and picked up Chip’s mother, Grace Vaughn. We came back through Paris and ate at the Fish Fry. Grace stayed with us until Sunday afternoon, when we drove her to Clarksville to meet Jim Vaughn. While Grace was in Tira, Chip’s sister, Linda Vaughn-Wells of Dallas, came for a visit and spent Friday night and Saturday with us. Grace and Linda visited other family members while here, too.
We had some welcome rain in our community on Tuesday night, but I have not heard of any storm damage in our area.
