Food, events mark the season

By SHARRON HUDSON

MILLSAP – As Christmas nears, there are activities and events galore celebrating this grand occasion.  The community get together in our neighboring town of Cool last Monday night was one of the more exciting parties in the area that brought the joy of the season to wonderful heights.

The outside of the Cool Community Center was beautifully decorated with a multitude of lights that gave a hint of the fun waiting inside. While the Christmas tree shone brightly, a variety of delicious foods from Pulidos was served to a capacity crowd. The delectably presented desserts for the evening were all creations of renown local baker Barbara Rothrock. Members of the Cool City Council graciously welcomed everyone, while talented vocalist and musician Amanda Reddin sang country and Christmas songs.

As a special treat Anita Presser, a very talented young lady from Millsap Elementary, also sang some songs of the season. This was a very nice way to bring people together for visiting, great food and lighthearted fun. Special recognition to the city council on a very successful event.

In conjunction with the evening, while Amanda Reddin sang her husband, Jason, gave a brief interview on their family life and musical careers. As many are familiar with Jason, Millsap Class of 1997, and his wife Amanda (Smith) Reddin, Millsap Class of 2001, it is interesting that while Jason has a well-known band, Thick 50, that plays throughout the state he and Amanda chose to live and work in Millsap. Jason has worked at the high school for the past seven years and Amanda teaches choir in the MAP Program at the elementary school.

While Cool’s party is over we are looking forward to the City of Millsap’s Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting on Dec. 15. Here’s a final rundown on all that will be taking place so everyone can make their plans to join in at the Log Cabin Park:

• Vendors booths will open at noon and the chili cook-off judging will be at 3 p.m.

• Everyone will enjoy the parade beginning at 5 p.m., and free hot dogs and drinks at 5:30 p.m.

• Santa will begin meeting and greeting at 6 p.m. This will be a great time for everyone to get together and enjoy celebrating as a community.
