The event will take place at Millsap City Hall, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., and is for all school children. Many of the preparations are well underway and donations are being taken. The committee that is putting the fair together is asking for donations of new backpacks, school supplies, and monetary help. Anything will be appreciated. This event is the vision of local resident Stella Casey and to make a donation, offering help, or questions call her at 940-353-7496. You may also call City Hall, as our Council is supporting this effort all the way, at 940-682-7446. This is a much needed event and takes a lot of help on many fronts so please give as you can.
The Millsap Neighborhood Ladies Home and Garden Club had a very fruitful meeting for July, as the women delivered about fifty pot plants to nursing home residents and shut-ins. The pots added extra pizzazz as they had been decorated in a patriotic theme by Millsap fourth graders during the school year. The next regular meeting will be August 7 at the Millsap Community Center. The ladies begin to gather around 10:30 a.m. and they will be enjoying salads for lunch. They will be bringing new school supplies to donate to Millsap students. The program will be a guest speaker form Millsap ISD. All area ladies are welcome.
As reported in area newspapers a very dear lady of the community, Mary Clautee Lack, has passed away. This native of Millsap was an integral part of the town even though she spent her last years in a residential facility. She had recently celebrated ninety-six years of life and will be greatly missed. Condolences to sons Lee, Cephus, Clarence, and Roger, and the rest of her very large family.
