One of the best parts of what the educator said was that he is impressed by how the community cares for our kids. He also said that one of the things he most enjoys about his job is the family atmosphere that envelopes the school system. Mr. Belding is a very cordial, helpful person and a wonderful superintendent, and we wish him the best on receiving this honor!
Here’s an event that people around Millsap will want to mark their calendars to attend. As has been written about in headline news, Precinct 3 Commissioner Larry Walden is conducting stakeholder meetings across the county during the months of February and March. Residents are invited to come and give input for goal setting; and, in the series of meetings policies are looked at to help with long-term goals. Also, there is discussion of how precincts operate and how property tax money is spent.
There have been four meetings scheduled, and locations included the Greenwood area, Brock, and ESD No. 6 Fire Station on the Granbury Highway (Weatherford). The fourth meeting will be at the Millsap Community Center on March 7 at 7 p.m. This is a rare opportunity to come out and have your voice heard about a myriad of issues which involve our county. Commissioner Walden is to be applauded on this endeavor.
The Millsap Heritage Society had elections in their regular monthly meeting and listened to a very informative guest speaker. Officers for this year are President Greg Boyd, Vice President Michael Kinman, Secretary/Treasurer Teresa Howard. Chairpersons for the Log Cabin Days Festival are Melvin Davis and Jo Ann Barnhart. Guest speaker was rancher Tom Sanders, who gave a presentation on antique fences. As the group has a goal to put up lengths of fence representing each of the log cabins eras of construction this was a very helpful talk. The club is also already making preparations for the Log Cabin Days Festival, which will take place May 11. They are ready to begin rentals for booth spaces, and for more info call 940-682-4402. This group continues to help make the cabin grounds better and we appreciate them.
