Heard from the Helping Hands/Millsap First Baptist Church Food Pantry and they are in high gear after the holiday with great organization and timely recognition of all of the help that they get. A special thank you is issued from the pantry workers to everyone at Millsap High School for their after Christmas completion of a food drive for the pantry. The school did a great job and the items collected will be of great help!
The Millsap Neighborhood Ladies Home and Garden Club is in the midst of preps for their Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser, which will be held at the Millsap Community Center on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The meal is $7 a plate, and all members are selling advance tickets. If you would like to pre-purchase call 940-682-5331. The food and atmosphere are always great, so plan on coming out to this wonderful event.
As many know the Bennett bricks plant, located about nine miles southwest of Millsap, has been out of production since around 2009. There is probability that this may not remain the case as workers have been in the plant for a while now bringing the equipment up to standards for resuming brick making.
While the plant has not made brick in the last few years the office phone lines have always remained available, so let’s hope for production to restart as this will bring jobs in and make the area where the plant is located have more activity around it again.
Jan. 21 is Martin Luther King Day and while Millsap teachers will work the students will have a holiday.
