On the weekend of July 18, Robert and Yvonne Weir watched their granddaughter, Everly, while her parents, Dustin and Natalie Weir, and their friend, Jeremy, went to Broken Bow, Okla. to kayak. Dacy, Elise and Eli Campbell visited with them on Saturday. Also, Ladonna Wilson and Roman Webb came by that afternoon.

Chip’s brother- and sister-in-law, Jim and Sandra Vaughn, of Broken Bow, came to see Grace and us on Sunday, July 19. They had been self-quarantined for a couple of weeks following a four-month term as park hosts in the Florida Keys. It was good to visit with them, see pictures and hear stories from their time on the island.

The Tira Community Center is remaining closed at the current time. An announcement will be made when it is reopened.
