Millsap Matters

Spring break, Cool water, groceries and more

By SHARRON HUDSON

With signs of Spring all about us, people are energized and out and about more. While students and school personnel are looking forward to spring break March 11-15, there is much activity on all three of our campuses.

The high school is already abuzz with prom plans as the event will be May 11 at Clark Gardens. The theme chosen is “Masquerade.” There are also softball, baseball, track and power lifting contests in action. The middle school Beta Club recently enjoyed their convention at the Gaylord Texan, in Grapevine, Texas, and members are working toward the 20 hours of community service that is required of them by the organization each school year.

Over at the elementary, second graders recently had the privilege of a visit from a dentist and his staff in conjunction with February being Dental Health Month. Dr. McLemore and his staff make it a yearly tradition to come and teach the children many aspects of dental health, with the highlight being a giant plastic tooth they bring for demonstration.

With so much going on, the students and staff need a vacation. Hope they all have a great one!

With an update on the waterline project that Cool and North Rural Water Supply Corporation are working on, Cool City Secretary Belle Brownlee had much information. Included in this upgrade are residents of the Cool area, with it reaching all the way to folks who live two miles north of Millsap.

The project is on schedule and there are two years allotted to finish it. It includes an eight inch line and fire hydrants. The construction crew, which is Whitewater Construction, from Waco, has about a quarter of the line laid.

The main thing the city of Cool does in the project is facilitate under GrantWorks, from Austin.

All involved are doing a very good job, even notifying consumers on days the water must be off. The completion and all that goes with it are something for customers to look forward to.
