Millsap Community Health Fair slated for Feb. 21

By SHARRON HUDSON

MILLSAP – With fairly mild winter temperatures moving us out of January, plans by some of our area organizations are in the works for events in February.

Among these is the Third Annual Millsap Community Health Fair sponsored by the Millsap School Health Advisory Council.

The fair will take place Thursday, Feb. 21, 5:30-8 p.m., at our high school. The overall purpose is to share information with the community about how to have better health and establish healthy habits. – To help with this endeavor dentists, chiropractors, optometrists, and nurses will be on site. There will be eye checkups, blood pressure checks, and flu shots available. Booths include those about pet health, heart health, poison control, and community events. There will also be door prizes and a theme-basket raffle. The junior class will be having a baked potato supper, in conjunction with the fair, in the high school cafeteria. The cost is adults, $6; kids 9 years and under, $4. A great way to spend some time taking care of one our most important assets and the fair is free of charge.

In a real outpouring of concern and care Millsap Elementary came together recently for a garage and bake sale for Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Hubik. As has been written, Mr. Hubik, our elementary principal, had back surgery in August and has been too ill to work since then. Mrs. Hubik, who also works in the school district, has been unable to work because she must care for him. The community has reached out and really come together to help the couple and this happened again in a big way with a multitude of folks affiliated with the elementary all pitching in to make the fundraiser a great success. The Hubik family sends a hearty thanks to all who helped with the event.
