MILLSAP MATTERS: Millsap was the scene of two special events

By SHARRON HUDSON

MILLSAP – Last Saturday was a banner day for two great events that took place in our downtown area. The Second Annual Back-to-School Fair and the housewarming for Triumph House were both big successes.

The Back-to-School Fair was held at City Hall and there were plenty of great supplies being handed out to all ages of students. Volunteers were very organized and helpful, plus the local fire department was on hand playing a great supporting role. Parker County law enforcement offered Ident-a-Kid, and Joy’s Shear Creations Hair Salon presented many haircut vouchers. There was a multitude of sponsors who made the fair possible, and the crew that put the event together was very pleased with the outcome.

Thanks go out to everyone who contributed and helped, with special appreciation going to Joy of Shear Creations. An awesome job in helping get the kids off to a strong start in school!

Over at the Community Center, sponsors of the Triumph House housewarming did a great job of hosting this event to help furnish a safe house for trafficked girls who have been rescued. To make the party lighthearted the room was cheerfully decorated in pinks with many stuffed animals and flowers accenting the room.

On a serious note the speaker for the event was Parker County Volunteer Coordinator of Traffick 911 Mary Elliott. She presented a very informative program so that the problem being addressed could be better understood. Many useful gifts and generous money donations were brought in. This event brought the safe house closer to being ready to take girls in. Glad Millsap could be a part of this worthwhile cause.

Congratulations go to the Mark and Stella Casey family on two joyous events. Mark and Stella celebrated their 29th wedding anniversary on Aug. 4, and recently celebrated the birth of granddaughter Lynnon Parker. This is their daughter Roxy’s second daughter, with Lynnon’s big sister being Brhylie. The Caseys are a great family who are very community minded and we congratulate them on these two happy events in their lives.
