The Millsap Neighborhood Ladies Home and Garden Club had a great time at their recent meeting. The theme of the day was “Tea Party.” The decorations featured all kinds of unique tea pots. For added fun the ladies wore their favorite tea party hats. This was the first time the club had the pleasure of a tea time together, and it was very much enjoyed. All ladies are invited to the club which meets the first Wednesday of each month at the Millsap Community Center. The women begin to gather around 10:30 a.m. and enjoy lunch and interesting programs. They also do a lot of volunteer and charitable work that benefits our area.
