Received a special request from Mineral Wells resident Missy Light. Her father, Calvin Light, who is a lifelong resident of Millsap, is seriously ill with Crohn’s Disease and facing a surgery on Tuesday at 10 a.m. Mr. Light has been in a very weakened state for quite some time, so there is grave concern over the needed operation. Missy is asking for prayers for her dad as he goes through this procedure. She is a very sweet young lady who loves her father greatly, so please help with this request.
There are many happenings in the town of Cool. The city council recently hired a new secretary, Mary Jane Rasberry. Enthusiastic crowds are attending gospel singing at Holders Chapel the first Saturday of each month. Everyone is invited to come out at 6 p.m. and enjoy some great talent. The Rothrock Produce Stand, located about a mile east of the Cool blinking lights on the north side of U.S. Highway 180, will have its yearly sweet potatoes for sale about Oct. 1. This is an active community and we enjoy being neighbors with them.
With Walden’s Farm and Ranch Equipment Consignment Sale just around the corner on Oct. 5 many locals are preparing for this event which brings in a great crowd from far and wide. The actual event will kick off at Walden’s Millsap grounds, 201 Fairview Road, at 10 a.m. The Abandoned Cemetery Association will be onsite selling lunch items, and for dessert the Millsap Neighborhood Ladies Home and Garden Club will have a bake sale set up at the store. Since there will be many visitors there are going to be many yard sales around town. This will be a great day for getting out and enjoying the fall air while doing some shopping. Come on out and join us!
