Charlie Felts was the winner of the contest based upon guessing closest to the correct weight of this huge rock.
Both days of the event were sponsored by the Millsap Heritage Society and they wish to thank everyone who helped make the festival a success. This group never slows down and they have already made special plans for their next regular meeting. It will be held June 10 and will be a tour of historical buildings in Palo Pinto. Everyone is invited to join them for this out and about with the plan being to meet at Heritage Park, ready to leave at 6 p.m., and car pool together to Palo Pinto. If you are a history buff or would just enjoy getting together and going on an enjoyable outing mark your calendar to join the group for the evening.
The Millsap Afterschool Program will be hosting a Family Night on May 21 at 6 p.m. with entertainment by some of the MAP classes. This program is also preparing for summer camps for kids. The plans for this summer include robotics, cheer and dance and drivers education. This whole program, which is possible to our school district through grant monies, provides a myriad of helps to students, parents and the community. It somewhat takes on the role of a directed community center and is a positive effect in many lives around here. Summer Edwards is the director and for questions call 940-682-3143.
Another summertime activity that kids are invited to is quilting classes sponsored by the Thimbles and Thumbs Quilters. This group meets at 9 a.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at the Millsap Methodist Church. These women were responsible for teaching the students about sewing on a quilt square at the Festival Education Day, and commented that the boys seemed more interested than the girls in this activity, so these classes are for all kids. For more info call 940-682-2071. This is something positive to keep the kids busy throughout the hot days of summer.
