MILLSAP MATTERS: Looking back on good memories


With May behind us, many folks around here are looking back on the great time they had at the Millsap Masonic Lodge Fish Fry. Despite the rainy weather the event was a success.

Members and some of their wives gathered early at Heritage Park to get the vats ready for cooking the fish and delicious side items. Some years the men are able to catch enough fish for the annual meal, but this year due to poor fishing conditions they purchased the fish through Garner Café.  Diners began filling the grounds around 4 p.m. in anticipation of the meal, as its delightful aroma could be smelled for blocks.  The whole meal was a great treat, and to top off the evening there was a scrumptious bake sale. This is always a well-planned event and very enjoyable. The Masons thank everyone for coming out to support their high school scholarship fund. 

Along with protecting us from disasters, Millsap Fire Rescue (VFD) is very involved in supporting the community in a number of ways.  Recently the firefighters hosted the Millsap Girl Scout troop. The youngsters were treated to a tour of the fire station and trucks. Several of the firefighters instructed the girls on basic first aid.  

Some in the department are also in training to run or walk in the Ticket Lady Trot fun run on Sept. 6.  The firefighters are meeting once a week to prepare for the event. Funds from this run provide scholarships for Millsap graduates, and it honors the memory of Mary “The Ticket Lady” Aaron. Thanks, Millsap Fire and Rescue, for supporting our community in so many ways.

Lifelong Newberry resident Royce Jordan has passed away. Jordan lived into his 80s and farmed his whole life, staying close to the family farm that he was raised on. He is survived by nephews James, Ted and Buddy White.
