MILLSAP – With all of the cold temperatures the best place to be it seems is inside.
Many took advantage of the warmth of our city hall at the Millsap Heritage Society’s regular monthly meeting. The group met for their annual membership drive over bowls of tasty chili. A lot of good ideas and information for the coming year were exchanged including that of a very informative guest speaker. Harold Lawrence from the Parker County Historical Commission provided information on how to obtain historical markers.
Also, a nominating committee was set up for election of officers at the regular February meeting. The nominating committee includes Larry Walden, Teresa Howard and Dean Hungate. If interested in being an officer in the organization you are urged to become a member (if you are not already) and contact one of these folks. The club is already in the preliminary stages of planning for the Log Cabin Days Festival in the spring. You are always welcome to join the society for a fee of $10 per person or $15 for a family annually, and even if you are not active the support is very much welcomed and appreciated. Regular meeting time is the second Monday of each month, 7 p.m. at the Log Cabin grounds.
There is much in the news about the water companies that service our area. It depends on where you live around here as to which company you buy water from. North Rural Water Company let its members know that applications are being accepted through Jan. 31 for board members. Millsap Water Supply held its annual meeting on Jan. 15, and Parker County Water recently informed their customers about rate changes.
Also, North Rural and Millsap consumers have been placed on a Stage 1 Drought Contingency Plan by authorization of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. A lot goes into the running of water systems so may we be thankful to those who volunteer to sit on the water boards and take care of the business necessary to keeping the water flowing.
