Gause ISD will start classes Monday, Aug. 24. Before school actually gets started, there is an opportunity to "Meet the Teachers" from 5- 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 20.

Gause Community Improvement Program (CIP) members are busy working on final plans for the annual Founders Day event, set Saturday, Sept. 5.

The Made-From-Scratch cake and pie contest has two age divisions, youth and adults. We are hoping to see more youth get involved and show their baking talents. These entries need to be at the Gause Baptist Church fellowship hall by 8 a.m. Sept. 5. Ray Cass will auction off the baked items following the parade for the CIP.

You who are planning to enter the parade need to be at the Gause school with your entry no later than 9:30 a.m. that Saturday. Delores Fisher is chairman of this activity and for more information she can be contacted at 979-279-5707. To make a donation for our raffle that day, contact Alma Gray at 979-279-5713.

For more information concerning the Founders Day trial ride, call J. Lynn Grace at 797-279- 6645. Arts and crafts booths will be available at Founders Day for $5 and space is on a first come, first serve basis.

Make plans to "have lunch" with the men of the Baptist Church who will sell barbecue plates at Founders Day starting at 11 a.m.

You can also call me for any other information on Founders Day at 979-279-2472. Hope to see you there.
