There is quite a bit of roadwork going on around the community of late. The Old Millsap Highway leading into Mineral Wells is receiving some major upgrading. On July 10 work will begin on South FM Road 113, which runs between U.S. Highway 180 and Interstate 20. Please use extra care on these roads and be prepared for delays.
Our community billboard recently announced that Millsap alumna Loriann Villa was crowned Parker County Peach Festival 2013 queen. What an honor for this young lady and our town. Congratulations, Loriann!
