Gause teachers, staff head back to work
Gause ISD teachers and staff will begin their 2009-10 school year on Thursday and continue with teacher in-service through Aug. 23. Classes for students will begin on Monday, Aug. 24. What a short summer vacation.
Gause Baptist Church men invite all to a fish fry following Sunday morning services on Aug. 16. Cost for the meal is $6 per plate, which includes dessert and drink. Proceeds will go into the building fund to help retire the debt on the church's Family Life Center.
We are glad to have Michael and Melissa Baumann Shehane living in our community now. They are both employed at Texas A&M University and are living in the home of Melissa's late grandparents, Frank and Ruby Shafer, at Pin Oak. Melissa's sister, Kim Hahn and children Macey and Braden of Yorktown, were here over the weekend visiting with the Shehane and parents Elaine and Gene Baumann.
Visiting last week with Wanda and Alfred Coats and Mildred Bowling was Wanda's cousin Patsy.
Spending the weekend here with Lois Wilkins was son and daughter-in-law, J.D. and Rita Wilkins.
