It is with sadness that we report the recent passing of Newberry area resident Melissa Lee. Mrs. Lee was a wonderful mother, an advocate for breast cancer awareness, and very involved with kids' sports. She leaves behind husband, Chris, daughter, Cheyenne, and son, Brenden. Condolences to this family.
Preparations for the opening of Triumph House, which is a residential facility for girls rescued from human trafficking, is making headlines in area newspapers.
As a reminder, there will be a housewarming for this residence at the Millsap Community Center on Aug. 10, 10 a.m.-noon. With many local sponsors on board, Millsap First Baptist Church is handling the details for this event.
Triumph House is registered at Target and Bed Bath and Beyond, or you are very welcome to come by the Community Center to make a donation. A very worthy cause, so please help if you can.
Another reminder is the Second Annual Back to School Fair for Millsap students will be held at our City Hall on Aug. 10, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. This is for students of all ages to receive supplies, vouchers for haircuts, and other helps. If you have donations to drop off, City Manager Mark Barnes invites you to bring them by City Hall weekdays, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. (Closed for lunch noon-1 p.m.).
