The Tira Volunteer Fire Department had a successful evening at their dinner and auction. They raised over $1,300 and would like to express their appreciation to everyone who came out to support the department. They would like to thank everyone who donated items for the auction and those who brought desserts for the dinner. A special thanks goes out to Bob Strate and Ta Molly's for supplying the food for the meal.
The Birthright United Methodist Church will have their annual Fall Festival on Saturday, Oct. 24, in the Fellowship Hall. The meal will begin at 5:30 p.m., with the auction to follow. The meal will consist of beef stew, chicken stew, chili, corn bread, crackers and dessert. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children under 12 years of age. All proceeds from the Fall Festival will go to local and national missions. Joyce Goldsmith reports, “The public is invited to come join us for good food and fellowship.”
Amy Nordin, president of the Panthers Booster Club for North Hopkins School, would like to let the community know that they have just recently started the booster club again. Amy says, “We need new members and donations, so that we may help advance the education, including the participation in the extra-curricular activities — including academics and athletics — for the students served by NHISD.” Membership dues are $5 per person. For more information, please contact one of the officers of the organization: President Amy Nordin, 903-951-3191; Vice President Gary Condo, 903-945-3147; Secretary Mikie Swann, 903-348-6127; and Treasurer, Sandra Nowlin 903-335-9634.
The North Hopkins School Alumni Association Annual Homecoming will be held in the school cafeteria on Saturday, Nov. 7. Registration and visitation will begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by a barbecue dinner and a program. Cost for the meal is $8.50 and is payable at the door. The Class of 1959 will be honored for their 50-year reunion. Door prizes will be awarded. All former North Hopkins students and their families are encouraged to attend.
RaDona Adams and Ashley Lewis spent the day at the Texas State Fair on Monday the 12th. They arrived early to get in line for a seat at the Oprah show, which was filming there that day. They also saw Gail King and enjoyed performances by Martina McBride and the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders.
I talked to Betty Lawson over the weekend and she said that she had been celebrating her birthday for three days. She was at Mick and Linda Petty's on Thursday night and enjoyed playing cards with her family. On Friday night she went to the Red Barn Café with her brother and sister-in-law, Bobby and Mildred Lawson. The three of them went to Paris for a buffet lunch on Saturday. I believe that Betty mentioned that Bobby was celebrating a birthday, too.
Betty wanted to mention that someone made a mess of the Tira Methodist Church grounds. After all the rain, they drove around making ruts in the mud.
Morgan and Kenden Joslin were among the participants in the North Hopkins School Fun Run on Friday afternoon. Morgan came in first in the fifth and sixth grade division, and Kenden was second in his group.
