4-H Fall Carnival set Saturday at school
Saturday is the annual Gause 4-H Club Fall Carnival Fund-Raiser. It will be held in the Gause ISD cafeteria beginning with games for the youngsters at 5:30 p.m. A new activity this year is a booth called "Make Your Own Scarecrow"- a family activity where the parents and children work together to make a scarecrow for your yard this fall. If anyone in the community has some hats, kids jeans and long sleeved button-up shirts that are about worn out, we can use these items so give me a call.
There will also be concessions of pizza, nachos, hot dogs, Frito pie, drinks and cookies for sale. Come bring the kids for the games, have supper and then come buy some items from the live auction that will be held at 7 p.m., following the children's costume contest at 6:30.
The club is selling candles and can be ordered at the carnival. Members are also selling tickets for barbecue chicken plates for pickup on the morning of Saturday, Oct. 31. The group will also have a bake sale on Saturday, Nov. 7 at Coats Grocery.
For you who may not know how important this fund-raising time is for the 4-H Clubs of Milam County let me give you some idea. All the 4-H clubs in the county are involved with fund-raising at this time. Half of what the clubs make they keep to be used for activities for their own club members and the other half goes to the Milam County 4-H Council that still helps our kids in many areas including workshops, the many projects the members of the county are involved in, camps the attend, materials they need for their projects and much more, which is also what we help our local members with. Your support is very much appreciated by these youth, parents and leaders.
I have been involved as a 4- H leader for over 30 years and I've seen the potential accomplished by so many of the youth in Milam County and the Gause 4-H Club over the years and enjoyed ever minute of it. So I say to you, if you are looking for an organization to support, consider the Gause or Milam County 4-H program.
Gause 4-H Club members and Gause ISD art classes participated in the Rockdale Fair over the weekend.
Gause youth involved in the soccer teams are playing here for the next two weeks. They play teams from Cameron and the games begin on Saturday morning around 8:30. We have an older group playing in Bryan on Saturdays.
The flu bug, allergies, or something like it has kept a few students and one teacher I know of out of school for a day or two recently. They seem to be on the mend, so hopefully it will not get too bad. It seems when the weather changes, as it has been doing recently, these symptoms come around.
The Pre-K and Kindergarten classes at Gause ISD made a trip to a pumpkin patch near Rockdale on Monday. After a fun time there in which each child got to pick their own pumpkin, they went to the Rockdale City Park and had lunch and played awhile before returning to the school.
The Gause Junior High volleyball team won over Milano on Monday night.
The junior high football team will travel to play Waco Texas Christian Academy on Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
