MILLSAP MATTERS: New community support group to help those in need

By SHARRON HUDSON

MILLSAP – Millsap is a great town, and one of the reasons that it is a wonderful place is because there are people here who are always willing to reach out and help those in need.

The new organization on the Millsap horizon with this goal as its main purpose is the Community Support Group.

As we have been following the grassroots beginning of this group, they recently had their first planning meeting and are really jumping in with some good ideas for helping our community’s clubs and organizations.

On this front the Community Support Group will be working with different local organizations and school clubs to get ready for the annual Millsap VFD Turkey Dinner. The fire department is changing the way they will do the November dinner, as they are turning it from a fire department event into a community event. This will allow different groups to participate and receive some of the proceeds.

We are looking forward to following this new development in the dinner, and to keeping up with all of the great endeavors that the Community Support Group is going to be involved in.

With fall here, we need to remember that unfortunately flu season will follow. The good news is that Millsap ISD is sponsoring a Community Flu Vaccination Clinic on Oct. 1. It will be in the Elementary Cafetorium, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. The immunization is free to kids 18 years and under, but if a parent or guardian will not be present for the shot the child must have a signed Parker County Hospital District consent form. For those with Medicare the immunization is free, but the Medicare card must be presented. To other folks the cost is $15, but many insurances will cover the cost. For any questions call 817-599-1229. We are very thankful to have this service offered close to home.
