Lots of holiday goings on out Millsap way


As each day has some aspect of Christmas in it, many are attending events that celebrate the season. In our town folks recently poured in to tour the Log Cabins and Millsap Methodist Church which were both beautifully decorated as a part of the Parker County Historical Society Candlelight Tour of Homes.

With well over 100 people coming in for this occasion, members of the Millsap Historical Society acted as very informative guides. They provided a lot of little known, interesting information about the buildings.

At the Log Cabins there were a host of fruit jars holding candles and a big cedar Christmas tree which had been decorated with handmade ornaments by the school's Junior Beta Club.

The Methodist Church, which is built in the shape of a cross, had many beautiful decorations which served as a backdrop to the building's magnificient stained glass windows. 

There was no shortage of refreshments as the cabins' guides offered up cookies and cider, and while Santa visited with everyone in the church's annex there were all kinds of cookies and drinks available. 

Members of the local Heritage Society considered it a successful day and appreciate all of the help that was given in putting the event together. It was a great honor to be chosen from among all of the historical places in the county to be a part of this tour and the local organization did a great job of presenting a portion of our history.

On the same day that the tour was taking place, the much anticipated Craft Fair at the High School was in full swing. There were some outstanding items available including rock sculptures, flannel camouflage baby cowboy boots, and hand sewn microwave potato bakers.  One booth that was an attention getter was the This Ain't Your Granny's Flower Club group. This is actually members of the High School's Floral Design Class. There are 55 students in the classes, and their teacher is Mrs. Wendy Lastovica. As a part of their class work the young people make arrangements for the public. They have done work for a wedding and had many beautiful designs available at the fair. They are looking forward to the possibilities that Valentine's Day, Springtime, and the Prom will bring so they can further apply their talents. To contact them for your floral needs call Mrs. Lastovica at 940 682-3212 or email her at wlastovica@millsapisd.net. The profits that the classes make are put back into supplies for their classes. They do a great job and are to be admired for their enthusiasm.
