• The Millsap Ladies Neighborhood Home and Garden Club reported that their spaghetti supper fundraiser was a great success, with over 150 folks being served. They express their thanks to everyone who so kindly supported their efforts. The funds the club raised go toward: twice-yearly goody bags for senior citizens and shut-ins, a yearly scholarship for a MHS senior, giving funds to families in the area who have emergencies or health crises and other community needs as they come up.
The ladies enjoyed a Mardi Gras theme at their regular February meeting and the guest speaker was Millsap City Manager Mark Barnes. He gave some helpful information on the workings and plans of our city government.
The March meeting will have an Asian theme. All area women are invited to gather at the Millsap Community Center on the first Wednesday morning of each month, at around 10:30 a.m., and enjoy visiting, a potluck lunch and being a part of a group that supports the community in a multitude of ways.
• The Quilting Club invites seasoned quilters and beginners to join them. The group meets at the Millsap Methodist Church on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, beginning at 9 a.m. Currently, each quilter is just beginning work on a “crazy quilt.” This design is made with silk, satin, beads and buttons. The group is also planning to make a quilt for the Methodist Church to use in a fundraiser – their way of saying, “Thanks,” for the church graciously letting them meet there. They are a busy group with some great endeavors!
An event that is being highly publicized throughout the area is the Benefit for Karen Hill-Denny. This will take place at the Mineral Wells American Legion on March 2, 2-10 p.m.
The money raised will offset expenses incurred due to Karen’s diagnosis of ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease).
