Joy’s Shear Creations Salon and Boutique, located on Fairview Road, behind the Post Office, will be celebrating its first anniversary on May 13. Owner Joy Pickett says it has been a fantastic year and many additions have been made to the establishment. There is a facialist, nail tech and massage therapist on site, plus Joy is a true artist when it comes to hair styling. The place is always busy with all age groups in for grooming. The workers are planning a big anniversary celebration that they want to share with everyone. As soon as plans are finalized we will let you know.
Checking in on the ever-vigilant Millsap Volunteer Fire Department – the group is busy with their 2013 training calendar. They are considering possible upgrades in front of the station where the trucks pull in and out.
The department is also making plans to re-purpose a unit for emergency medical services and rehab. The members are looking toward Texas A&M Forest Service grants, available for rescue and fire equipment.
New members are coming in, as Lee VanDyke’s application was accepted at a recent meeting. More members are always needed; if interested, meetings are the first Tuesday of the month, 7:30 p.m., at the Millsap Fire Station.
This group is vital to our safety and we are thankful for all that they do on this front for the community and surrounding area.
