The Recognized Millsap Yard for the month of August has been chosen. Congratulations to Mark and Karen Barnes on receiving the award. The whole property looks great, but what caught the committee’s attention was all of the obvious care that goes into the yard work. Karen puts her heart into this part of homemaking and the results are obvious. Thanks, Mark and Karen, for making your home on Houston Street a point of beauty in Millsap.
The August meeting of the Millsap Neighborhood Ladies Home and Garden Club was a very busy time. The theme revolved around school days, and special speakers were Millsap ISD Superintendent Dr. David Belding and new Millsap Elementary Principal Cathy Bradshaw.
The women brought in new school supplies to be donated into the schools, and finalized plans for providing brunch on the three campuses for personnel as they return to work.
The meeting also encompassed the announcement of club officers for the 2013-14 year. They are President Jo Ann Barnhart, Vice President Betty Jones, Secretary Ruth Barr, Treasurer Sandra Maddux and Assistant Treasurer Juan Etta Gilbert. Area ladies are always welcome to meetings, and the next one will be Wednesday, Sept. 4, at the Millsap Community Center with the women beginning to gather around 10:30 a.m.
With fall coming people begin to look for new organizations to visit or join. Here are some very worthwhile ones in Millsap, along with their dates, times, and locations:
• Ladies Home and Garden Club – first Wednesday of the month, 10:30 a.m. at Millsap Community Center.
