Nice time of year; worthwhile events taking place

(Continued)

Some hikers, bikers, and fishermen may also get too close to these areas. People tend to think they can get out of the way if a train is coming; however, the cars and locomotive overhang the tracks by at least three feet on either side. With the average train speed 26.3 mph, moving out of the path proves more difficult than it would seem. It takes a train more than a mile to stop. 

According to the Federal Railroad Administration, last year 433 people died and 411 were injured in the U.S. while trespassing on railroad property.

As trains come through Millsap and the surrounding areas all of the time, please do not become comfortable around the tracks – stay safe.

With Millsap’s Annual Christmas Tree Lighting only a little over a month away, it’s time to start making plans for being a part of this special time on Dec. 14.

A Crafts Bizarre will be set up at Heritage Park from 10 a.m. till dark.

Booth rental fee is $10 (no electricity) or $15 (with electricity).

For the Chili Cook Off entries need to be at City Hall by 3:30 p.m. and judging will be at 4 p.m. with prizes awarded. 

The Parade will start at 5 p.m. and is open to all Millsap ISD campuses and to any other groups and organizations.

After the Parade refreshments of complimentary hot dogs, chili, cookies, and drinks will be served at City Hall. 

Along with the lighting of the Christmas tree there will be visits and photos with Mr. and Mrs. Claus at the log cabins.

For any questions call Mark Barnes at (940) 682-7446.

This is going to be a wonderful part of the Christmas season, compliments of the City of Millsap, and many are looking forward to it.

The Millsap Cemetery Association will hold the Annual Meeting Nov. 3 at 2 p.m. at the cemetery.  In case of inclement weather the meeting will be at Millsap City Hall.

Nov. 5 is Election Day. There will be voting at Millsap Community Center, 7 a.m.-7 p.m.

Daylight Savings Time ends Sunday, Nov 3. If you haven’t changed those clocks better do it and thanks for reading!
