First ever Sugar Loaf Fun Run set for September 5

GAUSE NEWS
By WANDA LEE Reporter correspondent

Founders Day here in Gause on Sept. 5, just a week from Saturday. If you want to be a part of the parade, it will form on the library end of the school building. The parade will begin at 10 a.m. so make sure you get there early enough to get registered and in line.

The reason for the change in line up area is because of the first ever Sugar Loaf Fun Run, sponsored by the Gause Athletic Booster Club. Registration begins at 8 a.m. at the Gause ISD gym off FM 2095 and the entry fee is $10. For more information on this, contact Chad Lagrone at Gause ISD, 979-279-5891. This is a fund raiser for the Booster Club.

We have had several calls to make reservation for booths at the Founders Day.

The Community Improvement Program met Monday and tagged items for the raffle. If you have an item that you would like to donate to this activity, call or bring it to me, 979-279-2472.

Remember to have your cakes and pies to the Gause Baptist Church fellowship hall by 8 a.m. for the annual baking contest judging.

If you need any information about what will take place on Founders Day, give em a call and if you would like to help out in any way, we can find a place for you.

As I have mentioned in previous columns, the men of Gause Baptist Church will sell barbecue plates, sausage wraps and sandwiches at Founders Day. If you would like to purchase a whole brisket, you may reserve that by calling Eugene Baumann at 979- 279-3284, as soon as possible.

School is now in session. Supt. Perry Bell reports over all things got off to a good start Monday at Gause ISD. There were some tears in the Pre-K class, as expected.

Time for new enrollment forms to be filled out for the 2009-10 4-H year. The Gause 4-H Club will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 1 in the Gause school cafeteria. All youth interested in the 4-H program need to attend. Parents are encouraged to attend also. 4-H is a family organization and parents are vital in helping make their 4-H member a success in their projects.
