Hurrah for Morgan Mill!

The track meet last week was exciting for the Morgan Mill Junior High kids. Everybody participated. Cassidy Cline came in first in her running event and Jack Young placed in his event. Since the track meet was in Strawn, the highlight of the evening was a visit to Mary’s to eat. Coach Hutchison knows how to get the kids to perform. The next track meet will be the district meet at Strawn on March 31.

The Morgan Mill girls will start their volleyball season next week. Sixteen girls are participating in grades six through eight. This is a new sport that has only been played in Morgan Mill for the last three years. Our gym is limited in size for this sport which makes it a challenge for the girls. Their first game will be at 4 p.m. April 7 at Bluff Dale.

Grandkids are always a blessing in Morgan Mill. JoAnne Ball is proud of Mattie Ball who is a senior in Dallas. She has competed in a science fair each year and has always won. This year in Washington D. C., she came in fourth in the United States. Congratulations.

There are five Thursdays in March so Senior Citizens will not meet until April 7 at 6:30. The program will be Pam Bush and Kathy Geffre. Pam and Jeff Bush own an Alpaca Ranch on Hwy 281. Each year at shearing time the Morgan Mill school kids enjoy a field trip to watch the operation. Kathy, an experienced weaver, will demonstrate the art of weaving this alpaca fiber, similar to wool, into yarn. Pam, at the Arts and Crafts Fair in September, has finished blankets and shawls that are unbelievably soft. This will be an interesting and informative session you will not want to miss. Bring your favorite pot luck dish and come enjoy with your neighbors. Everyone is invited.

Laraine Waughtal, pastor of Morgan Mill Methodist Church, is presenting a study in the life of Jesus as seen in her slides that she took while on a trip to the Holy Lands. This study will cover His life beginning with his birth and continuing to his resurrection at Easter. She parallels each slide with scripture references. Come see where it all happened. Everyone is invited. The group will meet at 9:30 a.m. each Tuesday at the BCS building at Morgan Mill Methodist Church.

In an added note, some tank trucks have been stealing water from the fire plugs next to the school and the fire department. Please get a license plate number if you see this happening. No one other than the fire department has permission to use these plugs. When the water is released in large flows at these plugs, it makes Morgan Mill residents experience an extreme drop in pressure. Thanks for helping.

Thanks to those who have been cautious during this high fire conditions. The Morgan Mill volunteers have been ready but so far not needed. They got their new radios for the trucks last week so they can communicate with Erath County firemen better. Keep up the good works. It has to rain sometime.
