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

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

(Continued)

Deaths of various members of the pioneer family were also discussed. As a special remembrance, the Parker County Abandoned Cemetery Association recently put up new grave markers at the plots of Fuller Millsaps and two of his children. The cemetery is located at the original site of the cabin that now stands in downtown Millsap.

This was a very informative and enjoyable meeting!

The next meeting of the heritage group will be as a service project to the Garner and Millsap 4-H kids. With National 4-H week being Oct. 6-12, heritage members are going to host a hotdog roast at the cabin grounds for the youngsters. 4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization with over six million kids. Members enjoy hands-on learning experiences in the areas of health, science and citizenship. We are privileged to have a branch of this organization in our community, under the direction of Gera Bruner.

Our Millsap Elementary/Public Library has begun school-year hours. Since the library is a part of the Parker County Library Association, cardholders from any of these libraries can go in to pick up or drop off materials that are from the participating libraries. Items from any of the association libraries can be ordered by going to . To pick up or drop off materials patrons must first stop by the Elementary office. Library hours are Monday-Friday, 9-11 a.m. and 12:30-3:30 p.m. Pick up and drop off day is Wednesday. It’s great to have this convenience so close to home!

It’s almost State Fair time again, which runs from Sept. 27 to Oct. 20. With the reinventing of last year’s burned down Big Tex, the theme will be “The One and Only.”

It will be an homage to Big Tex, unveiled, and fair organizers are planning a celebration befitting the sweet giant’s return. There is also a new ride, “The Top of Texas,” with a 360 degree panoramic view of Dallas while traversing a 500 foot tower.

Many people from our parts are excitedly looking forward to attending and participating, so maybe these few details will make the anticipation all the more exciting!

It will soon be homecoming time for Millsap schools. A parade is scheduled for Sept. 22. There will also be a community pep rally during that week. Homecoming is Sept. 27. We are very proud of our Bulldogs!

Thanks for reading!
