Miller Grove News by Brandon Darrow 09/23/14
How about this cool front that has made it’s way into our area? I walked outside Monday morning and couldn’t believe it. It felt like Autumn was in full swing. In fact, Tuesday morning on my way to work I saw a group of geese flying south in a “V” formation.
Thursday of last week Miller Grove School hosted their second annual Cross Country Meet. Twenty-three schools were represented with a total of 533 runners. We took 2nd place in the boys & girls junior high meet alike, while the varsity girls came in 4th as a group and the varsity boys ended up taking the title of first place. Sounds like all of out home town participants did quite well.

Grandparents are Stephen and Fran Sparks and Kenneth and Charlotte Hayes, all of Miller Grove.
Monday night Miller Grove High School Drama class held their 4th annual Wax Museum for the public. I wasn’t able to go this year but I saw several pictures on Facebook and it looked as though the students did as well as usual being dressed like famous characters.
