Plans set for community Christmas event


MILLSAP – With the crisp weather and everyone getting ready for Thanksgiving, people are energized and there is a lot of news around here.

Our City Officials have all the plans in order for the Millsap Community Christmas Event. On Dec. 15, vendors will set up on the Log Cabin grounds at noon. At 3 p.m. there will be a chili cook-off and judging, and the word is that there will be a parade beginning at 5 p.m.

Free hot dogs and drinks along with all of the trimmings will be served beginning at 5:30 p.m. and Santa will be on the grounds at 6 p.m. This is something that hundreds of folks attend each year, and we will fill in more details as the date draws closer.

Word has been received that Millsap Elementary School Principal Wayne Hubik, who had back surgery on Aug. 21, is still recovering and his progress is not as quick as originally planned. Mr. Hubik’s wife, Ruth, who is a part of the elementary staff, is not on the job because she is caring for him. A fund in the form of a bank account has been set up at First National Bank Santo, with branches in Millsap and Cool, to help this couple with expenses. Go to either of the bank branches to donate to the “Hubik Benefit Fund.” We wish Mr. Hubik continued recuperation with eventual recovery.

Here are some more items from our Millsap schools:

• Kolton Davis is to be congratulated on being the third place winner in the National Beta Club Woodworking Competition. Middle School Principal Jeff Clark presented Kolton with a trophy for this accomplishment.

• The Thanksgiving holiday begins with early release on Tuesday and schools will be closed Nov. 21-23. Lastly, the middle school/high school band and choir Christmas Concert is Dec. 13 at 6:30 p.m. in the high school cafeteria.

Midpoint Chapel celebrated its 14th anniversary as a church family on Nov. 10th and 11th. The evening of the 10th gospel music, with a special performance by the generational Bryant Family Singers, with original member Billye Bess Flores traveling in for the event from San Antonio. Sunday services brought in many visitors, including some from Oklahoma, and an abundant potluck lunch. The day finished up with an afternoon musical performance by On A Journey, a quartet from the Metroplex. A wonderful time of worship, celebration, and blessings!

A reminder of the Free Community Wide Breakfast which will be at the Millsap Community Center on Nov. 24 at 9 a.m., with a special story time for kids at 10 a.m. This is the kick off for the ministry Christ’s Kitchen under the leadership of Jennifer Bland. Please drop by and support this project and lady as this could be of help to those who need breakfast or just a place to go for some company.

Speaking of people needing food the Millsap Baptist Church Food Pantry doubled the amount of area residents served in October verses August.  The Millsap Ladies Home and Garden Club, local churches, and others support the pantry, but as the winter months arrive the needs will become greater.  If you can donate take the items to the panty on Tuesday mornings before about 10 a.m.

I wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. As the Bible says: Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Ephesians 5:20
