Pumpkins galore and lots of fall activity down Millsap way


An exciting event that will be taking place Oct. 12 is the 3rd Annual Ticket Lady Trot. This is to benefit the Mary Aaron Memorial Scholarship Fund. There will be a 1M Fun Run at 8 and a 5K at 8:30 at the Millsap High School. Registration fees are $25 for the 5K and $20 for the 1M Fun Run. Participants can register online at GetMeRegistered.comTicketLadyTrot, or pick up a regis tration form at Millsap High School. The age group categories range from under 19 to 70-plus. The event needs sponsors, so to help in this way or for any info call 940-393-6573. Many look forward to this time to be physically active for a worthwhile cause. So glad the time is near.

The recent Newberry Church Homecoming was a much enjoyed time with people coming from Oklahoma and Arkansas to join in on the occasion. This was the church's 145th Anniversary, thus making it one of the oldest churches in Parker County. It began with four to five families and many of these families' descendants come in each year for homecoming. With wonderful weather, great food and beautiful red and white decorations, the Bible message of "A Blessed Day" was certainly appropriate. Plans are already in the works for next year's anniversary with a recipe book being put together. A great day for a lot of faithful folks.

Congratulations to the Millsap VFD on being approved as a First Responder Org (FRO). This has taken a lot of planning, preparation and training, and as a community we are very proud of this accomplishment by the department. The department started responding to EMS on Sept. 15, and they are excited to bring this service to our community. Thank you MIllsap VFD for protecting and helping so many people in so many ways.

A reminder that the MIllsap ISD Community Flu Vaccination Clinic will be held Oct. 1, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. at the Millsap Elementary Cafetorium. It is open to everyone, and for those 18 and under it is free; but the child must have a signed Parker County Hospital District consent form if the parent/guardian is not present. Medicare recipients are free, but the card must be presented. The cost is $15 to everyone else, but many insurances cover this.

Mark your calendars for Oct. 19 as this is the Millsap School Fall Festival.

Thanks for reading!
