Remember that the Gause ISD students will present their annual Christmas plays at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 17 in the school gym. On Friday, the elementary students will have class Christmas parties and the junior high students will go Christmas caroling. School will have an early out at 12:30 p.m. for the Christmas holidays.

Gause 4-H Club will meet at 6:30 p.m. Friday in the school cafeteria to wrap gifts that have been collected from students to be given to children of the community who’s parents need some help this year for Christmas. They will then have their Christmas party and the annual gift exchange of Christmas ornaments. If you would like to be a part of this community activity it is not too late. Give me a call or drop your donation by my home.

Gause Baptist Church invites all to its annual Christmas program at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 20. Something different this year is that the program will be held in the church’s Family Life Center. Bring your favorite snack food and join us for a time of fellowship following the program.

You in the community who have yards decorated for Christmas be sure to turn your lights on Monday, Dec. 21 for the Gause CIP Christmas decorated yard contest. If you haven’t been out and about to see the pretty decorations this would be a good evening to go. The CIP awards plaques to the top three winners.

In spite of the dreary weather Saturday, the Community Improvement Program’s (CIP) Christmas program and dinner was great. We had good singing in the special music by the Gause Baptist Church band and singers and an inspirational poem read by Delores Fisher. Chad Lagrone, pastor of the Barn Church in Milano, gave the Christmas message. And I have to add there was a lot of good food prepared by those of our community who attended.

Chris and Kelly Cooper were in Houston during the weekend to attend the annual Christmas party for the company Chris works for.

Ray Coats and son Trey from the Houston area spent the weekend here with parents, Wanda and Alfred Coats and other relatives.

Seems everyone is busy getting ready for Christmas–shopping, programs, parties and the many thing we try to get accomplished during these last days of the year. I gave up on that “getting things accomplished”. I’ve put several of the things I need to do on next year’s calendar already.

From my family to yours, we wish you a happy and safe Christmas. Remember what the season is all about.
