MILLSAP MATTERS: Club preparing for annual Lamplight Spaghetti dinner

By SHARRON HUDSON

MILLSAP – As we look toward Valentines’ Day, the Millsap Neighborhood Ladies Home and Garden Club is preparing for a very special event. The group is busy making plans for its Annual Lamplight Spaghetti Dinner.

Feb. 8 will find everyone who purchases a ticket for just $7 enjoying a meal of spaghetti with a choice of meat sauce, meatless sauce or no sauce. Plus there will be a side salad with choice of ranch or house dressing and tea, water or coffee. Kids 5 years and under eat free. A delicious Sweet Shoppe will be open for business and there will be a raffle of nice gift items.

This will all take place at the Millsap Community Center, 4-8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased from any club member, or you can call 817-360-6681 to buy. This is always a wonderful event, so mark your calendars.

At the regular monthly meeting of the Ladies Home and Garden Club, high school Principal Tammy Addison was the guest speaker. She said that the school had made advances in student career planning. There has also been an increase in the number of college prep, advanced placement and college credit classes. Great strides have been made in vocational training for students who do not plan to attend college. We have a very strong school district and the superintendent, board and personnel with community support work very hard to give our students a solid education.

In this vein, the Millsap Alumni Scholarship Foundation Board will meet Jan. 24 to begin planning for scholarships to all Millsap High School seniors who apply to the foundation. This is going to be a big job as there are more than 60 graduating, and a great number of these will be seeking higher education. 

The grads are not only given scholarships to college but to other types of higher education such as trade schools. Donations are always appreciated, and this would be a wonderful way to memorialize a loved one, as it is something that lasts and grows. Donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 801 Millsap, TX 76066. This is a very worthy cause and we are thankful for the foundation’s yearly help to our seniors.
