MILLSAP MATTERS: Millsap students take part in Red Ribbon Week activities


According to the Federal Railroad Administration, last year 433 people died and 411 were injured in the U.S. while trespassing on railroad property. As trains come through Millsap and the surrounding areas all of the time, please do not become comfortable around the tracks – stay safe.

With Millsap’s annual Christmas tree lighting a little over a month away, it’s time to start making plans for being a part of this special time on Dec. 14. A crafts bazaar will be set up at Heritage Park from 10 a.m. till dark. The booth rental fee is $10 (no electricity) or $15 (with electricity).

For the chili cook-off  entries need to be at city hall by 3:30 p.m. and judging will be at 4 p.m. with prizes awarded. The parade will start at 5 p.m. and is open to all Millsap ISD campuses and to any other groups and organizations.

After the parade refreshments of complimentary hot dogs, chili, cookies and drinks will be served at city hall.  Along with the lighting of the Christmas tree there will be visits and photos with Mr. and Mrs. Claus at the log cabins.

For any questions call Mark Barnes at 940-682-7446. This is going to be a wonderful part of the Christmas season, compliments of the City of Millsap and many are looking forward to it.

The Millsap Cemetery Association will hold its annual meeting Nov. 3 at 2 p.m. at the cemetery. In case of inclement weather the meeting will be at Millsap City Hall.

Tuesday is Election Day. There will be voting at Millsap Community Center, 7 a.m.-7 p.m.

Daylight savings time ended Sunday morning. If you haven’t changed those clocks you better do it, and thanks for reading!
