Life is busily rolling along in Millsap despite the hot weather. One thing that is a part of daily life everywhere is mail, and our post office has some new employees.
Our new postmaster is Jennifer Pope, who grew up in our area. She now makes her home in Mineral Wells. The new clerk is Glenda Pabalate and she lives in Lake Worth. Both women transferred from the Springtown post office, and have commented that the slower pace of this post office is enjoyable. Welcome to Millsap, Jennifer and Glenda!
Millsap resident Fred Buchanan celebrated his 80th birthday with a surprise party at the Millsap Community Center recently. Around 40 family members and friends joined together to wish Fred a happy birthday. This fellow is a retired train engineer and loves living in Millsap right across from the tracks so he can see and hear all of the trains as they pass through. Hope Fred enjoys his 80th year greatly!
Word has been received of the passing of Naomia Israel Ford, who was known by many of our senior people as a Millsap graduate from the 1940’s. She reached the age of 93 and is survived by a sister, Eula Mae Phillips.
