As we head into October things are busier than usual around Millsap, and there are many activities and events that will be taking place in the near future.
On Oct. 1 a very unusual pumpkin patch will be on display at our Elementary School. The gym will be transformed with pumpkins decorated as book characters. With instructions from their teachers, students have put their imaginations to work and are the artists of this special format. During an evening that will begin at 7 p.m., everyone will enjoy a gallery viewing of the characters, some interesting storytelling, and delicious snacks. The community is invited to join in for this wonderful family activity. It's sure to be a unique evening, and what a great way to usher in the fall season.
Oct. 2 the Millsap Neighborhood Ladies Home and Garden Club will have their monthly meeting at the Millsap Community Center. The theme for the meeting will be "Anything Pumpkin," and the meeting, which begins at 11 a.m., will include a tasty lunch, some fun games and enjoyable activities. As always all ladies are welcome, and this would be a great time to begin to participate as this group always has a busy, productive schedule during the holiday season.
Saturday, Oct. 5, will be a big day for Millsap with Waldens' Consignment Auction of farm and ranch equipment beginning at 10 a.m. on Fairview Road. This will bring with it a Bake Sale by the Millsap Neighborhood Ladies Home and Garden Club at the store, while the Abandoned Cemetery Association will be on the grounds selling lunch items. What will really round the day out are the yard sales planned throughout the community. This is an annual event that brings a lot of vitality to the area, and we want everyone to come out and enjoy it with us!
