Joy’s Shear Creations Salon and Boutique, located on Fairview Road behind the post office, will be celebrating its first anniversary on May 13. Owner Joy Pickett says it has been a fantastic year, and many additions have been made to the establishment. There is a facialist, nail tech and massage therapist on site, plus Joy is a true artist when it comes to hair styling. The place is always busy with all age groups coming in for grooming. The workers are planning a big anniversary celebration that they want to share with everyone, so as soon as plans are finalized we will let you know.
Checking in on the ever vigilant Millsap VFD the group is busy with their 2013 training calendar. They are considering possible upgrades in front of the station where the trucks pull in and out. The department is also making plans to re-purpose a unit for EMS and rehab. The members are looking toward TFS grants available for rescue and fire equipment. New members are coming in as Lee VanDyke’s application was accepted at a recent meeting. More members are always needed, so if interested meetings are the first Tuesday of the month, 7:30 p.m., at the fire station. This group is vital to our safety and we are thankful for all that they do on this front for the community and surrounding area.
Guess what? Lambert Switch Cafe and Store has reopened. Many from our area used to go in regularly as it just a stone’s throw from here, located at 6151 Mineral Wells Hwy (U.S. 180 East).

They have a full menu including breakfast, with ribs and burgers among the most popular items. In the store part of the venture essential groceries and HBA are sold.
