Founders Day plans coming together
Gause Community Improvement Program met for its monthly meeting on Monday, Aug. 3. Dorsie Wilson red the minutes from the last meeting and Delores Fisher gave the financial report.
Members spent the business session making plans for the annual CIP fund-raiser, Founders Day, set for Saturday, Sept. 5. J. Lynn Grace will be chairman of the trail ride and riders will leave out from his home at 19704 E. Highway 79 east of Gause early that morning. You may call him for more information.
The parade will gather at the Gause School teacher parking lot off FM 2095 in front of the gym. The gate will be open by 9:30 a.m. and entries will then be assigned a place in the parade. The parade will start at 10 a.m. For more information on the parade, call Delores Fisher at 979-279-5707.
As in the past, arts and crafts booths are available at the picnic tables for $5 each. Everything you earn is yours to keep. The spots are on a first come basis.
Gause 4-H Club will sell drinks and cookies for a group fundraiser and the men from Gause Baptist Church will again sell barbecue plates with the proceeds from this helping to pay on the church's Family Life Center.
All of you who love to bake, or just want to help support this activity, don't forget the annual cake and pie contest where the items will be auctioned off following the parade. This activity is the largest money making activity of the day for the CIP. Your support is greatly appreciated. All proceeds go back into our community.
Alma Gray is in charge of the raffle that takes place each year and if you have any items that you would like to donate, give her a call at 979-279-5713 or take it to her house. You call also drop it by my house. This is always a fun activity. The more prizes we have, the better chance of winning.
Members of the community are invited to help work with any of the activities that will take place that day. Give me a call or just show up that day and we can put you to work. All help from the community is greatly appreciated. If you need more information on any of the activities, please give me a call at 979-279-2472 and leave a message if you need to, I'll call you back.

It doesn't seem possible but school will start again very soon. All the youth who are into sports are doing two-a-days already and I'll bet the teachers who aren't' coaches are enjoying their last days of "sleeping in."
