MILLSAP – As we are enjoying glimpses of spring, many of our youth are staying very busy with sports. The Millsap Youth Association plays an important part in this aspect of area kids’ lives.
The association recently held an awards ceremony at Millsap Middle School to present basketball trophies to players who are in grades one through six. Everyone involved had a great season, and the local girl scout troop was brought on board to offer out their boxes of cookies for sale at some of the games.
The MYA is already busy with sign-ups and plans for the volleyball and baseball/softball seasons. This is a dedicated group of workers who do a lot to foster our children’s growth in a number of ways. Thanks, MYA!
Millsap ISD recently recognized the fall semester of Safe Employee Award winners. Chosen for their excellence in promoting a safe work environment were Leah Henderson, Chris Tinney, Donna Ford and Mark Greenway. The program highlights workers who actively engage in safety and accident prevention on the job. The district thanks these recipients for their hard work, dedication, and efforts to keep the work environment safe. Congrats and much appreciation to this super safety squad.
Beulah Baptist Church has a busy month ahead with a couple of great fellowships on the calendar. At one event the folks will gather for a hotdog cookout and campfire sing along. Later in the month they will have their Spring Fling, which is a time of fun, games and treats for the children. Under the leadership of Pastor Tommy Pophin, who has recently been writing some inspiring articles for area papers, this church family is a blessing to many. Have a great time at your March parties!
Here’s a wonderful event to put on the calendar for Easter: Holders Chapel invites everyone to join them for a Sunrise Service at 7 a.m. on Easter morning, April 20. The message will be brought by Pastor Steve Edge, of Millsap First Baptist Church, with the congregation of Millsap First Baptist being special guests for the morning. Following the service there will be a fellowship breakfast at 8 a.m., which will be prepared by the men of the church. This is a great way to begin Easter Sunday.
