Miller Grove News for May 4, 2011

This has been a busy week in Miller Grove. I’m glad that everyone got a couple of good rains on their gardens this week.

I heard that the fire department’s car show went quite well. They said they had almost 200 entries in the show, which covered the school’s parking lot. I know all of the volunteers are proud of the good turnout and the money that was generated to help fund the volunteer fire department throughout the year. Everyone’s hard work really paid off.

Tuesday, Miller Grove PTO sponsored a Field Day for the elementary students. From what I could see, the elementary kids had a blast. They had bounce houses in the old gym, volleyball on the playground, board games, and several other activities to keep the kids busy all day.

Happy birthday to: Aaron Baylus, Billy Wren, and Leah Fouse on May 2; Ray Sparks and Johnny Burns on May 3; Tara (Russell) Spencer, Junior Millsap (my uncle), and Angela Pitts on May 5; Dianne Sparks on May 6; and last but not least, my nephew, Brody Darrow will be one year old on May 7. Whew, that was a slough of birthdays this week!

I guess I might as well tell that my birthday was also on May 2. I had a good one. Lots of birthday wishes from folks on Facebook as well as a few phone calls.

This Saturday will be the Miller Grove Cemetery’s annual Memorial Day services, which begin at 10:30 a.m. The program committee has worked diligently to put together a great program for this year’s services. Dinner on the grounds will start at noon. If you have a friend or family members buried at the cemetery, feel free to join us. After lunch will be the unveiling of the historical marker at the cemetery, and then singing in the afternoon.

Deanna Hasten contacted me the other day and said that a Civil War band, "Hood's Texas Brigade Brass Band", will have a concert this Friday, May 6, at 7 p.m., in the Cedar Crest Christian Church at 207 North Davis St. in Sulphur Springs. The band consists of students from Hill College in Hillsboro, and they are stopping in Sulphur Springs on their way to Jefferson for the annual spring pilgrimage. The band is the only one of its kind this side of the Mississippi River, and one of only a few in the United States. The Lone Star Heritage Quilt Guild is sponsoring this timely concert as part of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Admission is $5, and dessert will be served after the concert.

Just a reminder to mark your calendars for the end-of-school stew this year. It will be Friday, May 20. I will include more details about the traditional stew in the next couple of weeks’ news.

As you travel the highways and byways, don’t forget that all roads lead home and back to Miller Grove. Please send me any newsworthy information. My e-mail address is This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
