Robert, Yvonne, Wesley, and Helen Weir and Alice Hall met Mike, Dacy and Elise Campbell, Destri Main and Dustin Weir for a late lunch in Greenville on Mother’s Day. Dustin spent Sunday and Monday night with his folks. On Saturday Yvonne attended a birthday party for her friend, Pat Williams, in the Harmony community.

The Hopkins County Adult Special Olympics group met in the home of Debbie and Mickey Davis on Saturday night, May 9, for a hayride and wiener roast. There were 35 in attendance. Joyce Goldsmith reports, “Although the weather was cool and wet, they had a very good time and enjoyed the food very much.”

Micah Walker received his Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Agriculture degree from Texas Tech University in a ceremony held Saturday, May 8, in Spirit Arena on the Texas Tech campus. Following graduation, Micah and fellow graduates Tye Thompson and Braydon Grulky were honored with a barbeque dinner hosted by their families at the New Home Community Center south of Lubbock. Over 90 friends and family members gathered to honor the graduates, including Kenneth and Pat Sparks of Sulphur Springs; Robby and Carmen Sparks of Mount Vernon; Neal and Terry Walker of Longview, Tripp Bryan of Ruidoso, N.M.; Greg, Kris and Macelyn Walker of Bullard; Dean and Margaret Eudy and Ted and Judy Carrington of Cooper; Larey and DeLeen Melton of Commerce; and Kevin, Dee and Kadee Melton.

On Monday night Micah Walker and Megan Baxter, both North Hopkins graduates, were awarded a continuing education scholarship from the Sulphur Springs chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa-Beta Nu, a teacher sorority. The scholarship, which is awarded to students pursuing a degree in education, was presented by North Hopkins teacher Tracy Dennis to her former students. Megan is a senior elementary education major at Texas A&M-Commerce, and Micah will begin his master’s degree work in agriculture education at Texas Tech University in the fall of 2009.

Chuck Olmsted, Morgan Joslin and Chip and I attended the wedding of Curtis Wright and Kathy Bell in Paris at Heritage Hall on Saturday afternoon.

Chip and I met Jim Vaughn in Clarksville and picked up Chip's mother, Grace Vaughn, on Friday evening and we came back through Paris and treated her to an early Mother's Day dinner. Grace spent Saturday afternoon with Tim and Lori Vaughn and their family and enjoyed the evening meal with them for Mother’s Day. Malcolm, Tiffany and the kids joined her for Mother's Day lunch at our house on Sunday. She was with John and Linda Vaughn and their family on Sunday evening and was treated to another meal for the holiday. Grace visited her friend, Kathryn Brandenburgh, on Monday afternoon, and then she and Chip visited Charlie and Susan Vaughn later that evening. Chip took her back to her home in Broken Bow, Okla., on Tuesday evening and he visited with Jim, Sandra, Johnny, Cindy, Alex and Thomas Vaughn while there.

Yvonne Weir, Brenda Allen and I met for lunch on Tuesday at the Blue Mug Café in Sulphur Springs to celebrate Yvonne’s birthday, which was on May 4th.

I had hoped to have more news about Mother’s Day activities to report. Maybe I’ll hear from some others before next week’s column.
