A fundraiser benefiting the Tira Volunteer Fire Department is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 17, at the Tira Community Center. An enchilada dinner is being provided by TaMolly's out of Paris. Serving will begin at 6 p.m. and continue “'til gone.” Cost for the meal is by donation only. A silent auction will be going on throughout the evening, too. Please make plans to attend and show your support for the firefighters.

Daylee Fite, Sherry Smiddy and Powell Vickery had a fun-filled Saturday. First they went to see Ethan and Braden Vickery, who are on the same team, play soccer, and they won their game. This team is coached by Chris Vickery, along with his brother Steven Vickery as a “spectator-helper” on the side. Then they traveled to Winnsboro to see Cody Fite play football — his team also won — then back to Sulphur Springs to celebrate Braely Vickery's eighth birthday.

Mary Rawson met Ida and Gene Bratcher at Plain and Fancy for lunch last Wednesday. After their meal Ida and Gene took Mary to see their new home. Mary reports that they have a beautiful place.

Tiffany, Morgan, Kenden and Jaidyn Joslin and I went to Branson on Friday. We did a little sightseeing that afternoon. On Saturday morning we went to the Butterfly Palace, where the butterflies were very attracted to Kenden's red hoody. That afternoon we rode "The Duck" and toured the city on land and water, and then they went to the musical, “Noah,” which was wonderful! That night we went to Branson Landing and watched the fire and water fountain show on the river and did a little shopping. While there we enjoyed a meal at Joe's Crab Shack. On Sunday morning the kids played on the playground at the resort and then we drove through the grounds of the Big Cedar Lodge and admired the beautiful landscaping against the backdrop of the lake and mountains. We returned home on Sunday night, only to find that Tira was experiencing the same cool weather as Branson. (The boys were disappointed that it was too cold to swim while there.)

I guess not much has been happening in Tira. I hope to have more news next week.
