MILLSAP MESSENGER: Millsap, log cabins sparkle this Christmas season

By SHARRON HUDSON

MILLSAP – Everything is bright and twinkling as we move rapidly toward Christmas day and the decorations around the Log Cabin Park in our town are beautiful. With the recent community parade and tree lighting came lots of fun and imaginative wonder of the season.

There was so much great participation in the entire event that only some of the highlights can be mentioned. The parade was a spellbinding sight to behold with an elf on stilts, a gorilla on a motorcycle, and a souped-up race car sporting St. Jude’s logo. The many floats that were designed by different classes and organizations of the schools brought beauty and merriment to the parade. The Millsap VFD trucks brought a lot of power along the route with one of the vehicles carrying Santa and Mrs. Claus to the cabins. Many great tasting hot dogs along with all of the trimmings were enjoyed by a capacity crowd, and the kids delighted in talking with the jolly old elf and receiving a toy from him. The giant tree glowed brightly with a multitude of colored lights, and the scene is still set for anyone wanting to come down and tour the Christmas lights of Millsap. It was a great celebration, and appreciation goes to the Millsap City Council, City Manager, and all who helped make it possible.

Since most of us have been doing extra cooking ever since Thanksgiving the new 5 A.M. Donut cafe opened up just at the right time in our area, so we can take a break from the kitchen and have a delicious breakfast or lunch-dine in or carry out. The business which is one of six stores in the area (Mineral Wells/Weatherford) is owned by Bill and Karen Bulsterbaum. The building which is painted a bright, eye catching yellow is located on the corner of the Old Millsap Highway just southeast of the railroad tracks. There are all kinds of breakfast foods, including full menu plates and a variety of drinks. Then for lunch, which runs until 1:00 p.m., there are green chili burgers, soft tacos with chicken or beef/potatoes, plus other tasty items. The employee loves meeting the public and cooking so that’s a winning combination in food service. It’s nice to have a cafe with the early 5 a.m. hour through lunch, so there is plenty of flexibility on when to grab a bite. Welcome to Millsap, 5 A.M. Donuts!
