MILLSAP MATTERS: New Cool restaurant now open


MILLSAP – With this being such a busy time of year there is much news to talk about. Both openings and anniversaries of businesses are taking place in our area. The newest opening is the Blue Windmill Restaurant in Cool.

As you step into the café the decor is cowboy/Native American, and you are welcomed by the smiling faces of owner Billie Holley and associate Brenda Smith.

There is plenty of spacious seating and the menu is off to a good start with lunch specials daily. A lot of care and precision is put into each meal, and the results are great.

If you need a bag of ice it is available in a machine outside, and there are plans to carry other quick items like bread and milk. The Blue Windmill is open Tuesday-Saturday, 6 a.m.-6 p.m., and you are invited to dine in or take out.

Located on U.S. Highway 180 West across from the Cool blinking lights, you can call in for food at 682-229-7085. Much success to the Blue Windmill!

Joy’s Shear Creations Hair Salon is celebrating a first anniversary in downtown Millsap during the month of May. Plans to celebrate include the special of 15 percent off any service as a thank you to clients for a very successful first year.

There will be a discount on a “Day of Beauty,” which does not have to be all done in one day. The massage therapist and facialist are also offering other specials. Happy anniversary Joy’s Shear Creations!

Students at the Millsap Elementary School are preparing for the annual talent show in which grades 3-5 participate. An art show has been added this year, with exhibits of paintings, sculptures, and photos. The top ten projects of grades 3-5 will be on display the week of May 6. The day for the show is May 9, 6:30 p.m. This will be a great experience, free to the public, so plan to go and enjoy.
