GAUSE NEWS
By WANDA LEE Reporter correspondent

The annual Gause Founders Day, a fund-raiser for the Community Improvement Program, is Saturday, Sept. 5. I have been telling you about the activities that will take place for the last several weeks. This week I will give you names and numbers for those you can contact about the different activities.

For the Made-From-Scratch Cake and Pie Contest, contact me at 979-279-2472. Entries need to be at the Gause Baptist Church fellowship hall by 8 a.m. Ribbons will be awarded and the items will be auctioned off as part of the fund-raiser following the parade.

The parade will line up at the Gause school at 9:30 a.m. with the parade starting at 10. This is open to all who want to participate. Winners will receive ribbons. For more information, call Delores Fisher at 979-279- 5707. For information on the trail ride, contact J. Lynn Grace, 979-279-6645.

Alma Gray is getting the raffle together this year. If you have an item to donate, call her at 979- 279-5713.

Cost to have an arts and crafts booth is $5 and what you make is yours to keep. You can pay me on Saturday when you set up. Availability is on a first come, first serve basis at the picnic tables near the back as the cake and pie auction takes place at the front tables. You may call me for information on this.

Plan to come and have lunch as the men of the Gause Baptist Church will sell barbecue plates, sausage wraps and sandwiches. If you need to know something about this, contact Eugene Baumann, 979-279-3284.

A new event is the first ever SugarLoaf 5K Run. Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. in the school gym and entry fee is $10. There will be a "Kid Run" at 8 a.m., followed by the race. There will be a junior high division and adult division. This is sponsored by the Gause ISD Athletic Booster Club. For more information, call coach Chad LaGrone at 979-279- 5891.

We want all people of the community to be involved in the Founders Day activities. If you want to help out someplace, just give me a call and we can find a place for your help. Hope to see you there.

We had prayer requests in church Sunday for two boys from different families who have been in the hospital with the H1N1 virus. Please, let's all take precautions with these flu systems. From all information this can be a serious flu.

Games for you Gause ISD sports fans are about to begin. On Thursday, Sept. 3 the Gause Junior High volleyball teams will play at the GISD gym with games starting at 4 p.m.

The Gause Junior High football team will begin its season on Thursday, Sept. 10 when they travel to play Bryan St. Joseph. Game time is 5 p.m.

Jaxon Hayles and his mom, Kristi Lee, spent the weekend in League City. Jaxon stayed with his dad Bryan and brother Tristan and Kristi with Jaxon's great grandmother, Anita Wallace. Family members helped Jaxon and Tristan celebrate their birthdays with a party at their dad's on Saturday.

Jaxon celebrated his birthday again on Sunday with our side of the family at Chuck-E-Cheese for a pizza party with games in College Station.
