MILLSAP MATTERS: New Cool restaurant now open


As we move toward the summer months many families will be looking for facilities to house family reunions.  There are two great choices in the immediate area. The Cool Community Center has a $100 a day rate, with a $25 up front deposit. For questions or reservations call 940-682-4386. The Millsap Community Center offers a $75 rate for the day, and the number to call is 940-682-2071. Neither center offers half day rates. Both of these centers are very well maintained and great choices for gatherings.

As we move toward the May 11 Log Cabin Days Festival a unique contest has been added to the event. A sculpture created by Millsapian Melvin Davis has been moved onto the cabin grounds. It is the “Campfire Ring of Honor” and is a memorial to deceased Heritage Society members and cooks who helped at the past festivals.

The base of the sculpture is a huge rock, and here’s where the contest comes in. The rock has been weighed on Walden’s commercial scales, and tickets are being sold on guessing the correct weight of the stone. If you want to buy a chance it is $2 for one, or $5 for three. Forms are available at Millsap City Hall and Millsap Waldens Farm and Ranch Supply and will also be sold at the festival. The prize is $50 for the guess nearest the correct weight, and you do not have to be present to win.

It’s going to be a hard guess, but a lot of fun!

Also, the Millsap Heritage Society will have their regular monthly meeting one week early, with it taking place May 6 at 7 p.m. at the cabin grounds.

Reminder: Waldens consignment sale is May 4 at 10 a.m. at 201 Fairview, Millsap. The Millsap Neighborhood Ladies Home and Garden Club will have a bake sale in the store and the Abandoned Cemetery Association will be there selling lunches of hotdogs, nachos, and Frito pies.

Thanks for reading!
