Millsap Elementary PTO plans more work with proceeds from Big Kahuna Fundraiser

Deer hunting education, history, 4-H, library and more in Millsap

By SHARRON HUDSON

MILLSAP – As the school year is well underway, the Millsap Elementary Parent-Teacher Organization is off to an exciting start! The group already has a project ready to kick-off on Sept. 16.

The Big Kahuna Fundraiser is a treat for all buyers, as the major products are delicious foods. Of special interest to many are the wonderful cookies and an array of tasty goodies – great for holiday and cold weather meals.

The group made a significant funding contribution toward getting the canopy shade over the playground. Their plans are to make more improvements to the play area.

The Executive Board meets the first Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. A general meeting follows in the elementary gym, and, topping off the evening, a student program will be presented.

If you are interested in buying any of the Big Kahuna treats, drop by the elementary office or call the school at (940) 682-4994.

For those who are gearing up for deer season in November there is going to be a Texas Parks and Wildlife hunters’ education course at the Millsap Community Center, Sept. 28, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.

The certified, volunteer instructor will be Alan Walters who has taught this course to over 400 people across the state during the last five years. Mr. Walters said that anyone born after Sept. 2, 1971 who is going to hunt in Texas is required to have a hunters education course.

This one-time class satisfies the requirement for all 50 states. It is for those who are 9 years old and older. There is a $20 fee per person.

For registration call Mr. Walters at (903) 456-5264.

The recent meeting of the Millsap Heritage Society was a great time as Mr. John Millsaps, a descendent of Fuller Millsaps for whom our town is named, was the guest speaker.

The range of subjects included: singer Ronny Millsap, who is a kinsman; one of the Millsaps’ participation in the Battle of the Alamo; and the general boundaries of the thousand acres of land owned by Fuller.
