Summer season offers activities, gospel singings and local good eats

(Continued)

With many busier than usual in the summer months, let's take a minute to see what's cooking at the cafes around Cool as some may need a quick meal out. Over at Dee's Hometown Diner, located on South F.M. 113, one of the most popular items right now is the salad with grilled or fried chicken. For dessert, Dee says the sugar-free pineapple pecan pie is highly recommended. If you need a pie for an event let her know at least 24 hours ahead of time and she'll bake you one, with the most popular being chocolate and coconut. The diner is open Monday-Sunday, with modified hours, and not in the evenings.  To place an order call (940) 682-4600

Over at the Blue Windmill, located on Highway 180, north of the Cool blinking lights, owner Billie   says some of the most popular dishes are the chicken fried steak and fish. The café has a great breakfast menu with many choices. Billie wants everyone to know that she prepares all of the food from home cooking methods, so while it may take a little longer to get your food, it is worth the wait. This chef also will meet special dietary needs as much as possible. Everyone is welcome, and Billie extends a special welcome to young people and the elderly.  The business is open Tuesday-Saturday, 6 a.m.-6 p.m., but is closed the second Saturday of each month. Mrs. Holley welcomes call-in orders at (682) 229-7085. Two great choices for a meal out!

With longer days and some of us having more time for extra activities, the Parker County Extension Agency offers some great opportunities. The organization's mission is to serve Texans through community-based education to the people. The extension brings the resources of the Texas A&M University System to our county. It provides educational programs and technical assistance in areas such as diet and health, youth development and agriculture. The next workshop the agency offers will be "Managing Your Money...Making the Most of Your Money," on June 27 at 2 p.m. It will take place at the Parker County Agricultural Services Center, 604 North Main St., Suite 200, Weatherford. The cost is $10. Something new to learn and just a short drive from Millsap.

With parents having the kids out of school, they may have more time in the evenings and decide to attend the MISD School Board Meeting on June 24, 7 p.m. at the Middle School Media Center.

Thanks for reading!
