Thanksgiving, gridiron and academic successes

As we have gotten through the first icy spell of the winter months the Thanksgiving holiday brought some great celebrations.  Among the many events that took place there was a blessed community church service in our town.

Millsap First Baptist Church hosted a Thanksgiving time of worship and fellowship with the congregations from the area Methodist Churches being special guests.  Methodist Pastor Jim Sanders brought the sermon.  The Baptist family went all out by providing a traditional feast of turkey and dressing with all of the trimmings.  This special time has become a much looked forward to tradition for the church families involved.  What a great way to start off Thanksgiving!

The Millsap Youth Association Bulldog Football Teams are now Super Bowl Champs.  The teams recently traveled to Santo for the league championships.  The 3rd and 4th grade teams won their Super Bowl by beating Brock 34-12.  The 5th and 6th grade teams followed suit by winning over Brock 18-0 to achieve their Super Bowl Championship.  It was very exciting to watch all of our players and cheerleaders.  There was great support of the kids and the Bulldog spirit abounded.  Congratulations to the MYA Super Bowl Champs!

While the ladies of the Millsap Quilting Club tend to stay very busy with a number of projects they will be taking some time to enjoy a Christmas party together.  The event will take place on Dec. 10 at the home of Ruth Barr.  One of the highlights will be Chinese Christmas.  This is special for the women as each gift is home/hand made.  The game brings about a lot of laughter with everyone receiving a beautiful gift.  This is a time of well earned visiting and enjoyment as these women make many quilts

for organizations to raffle for fundraising, plus other quilts they make go to individuals who need help or support.  The next club meeting will be Jan. 14, 9:00 a.m. at the Millsap Methodist Church and all ladies are invited.
