2013 a year of preservation

Hope your new year is off to a strong and happy start and that you have many plans in the works for 2013.  One organization that is already busy with plans for the coming year is Millsap's Heritage Society.

This group will host their annual membership drive at their regular monthly meeting Jan. 14. They invite anyone interested in the history of our area, as well as those interested in general community support, to come and have a bowl of chili and learn more about all of the endeavors, both past and future, that the club is about.

With the kick-off beginning at 7 p.m. at Millsap City Hall an individual can join for the year for $10, or a family fee is $15. If you become a member some of the goals you can look forward to being involved in are fencing around the Log Cabin Park and building a grape arbor.  The group is also looking at the possibility of moving the ancestral Bankhead house, located south of town, onto the cabin grounds and is in preliminary plans for an educational two-day festival in May. This is a great opportunity to be involved on a multitude of levels with many worthwhile projects.

Another busy group is the Abandoned Cemetery Association, with some of its most active members from around here, who are always at work upgrading and preserving the 62 graveyards under their care. 

This winter one of their main goals is to fence the Edwards Cemetery which is located east of Poe Prairie. This organization also tackles the myriads of paperwork necessary to have documentation of protection from the state against intrusion by public means (i.e., pipelines) on these grounds. This requires many hours of detailed research and  written presentation, so the group works in many ways to take care of these cemeteries.
