Prizes include a $3,000 exotic water buffalo hunt at Beaver Creek Ranch located between Milano and Gause, an exotic goat hunt at Mason and a $75 Academy gift card. Tickets are $10 each or six for $50. The drawing will be held on May 15 and proceeds will go to help buy new equipment for the club.

For more information or to purchase tickets, contact Chris or Kelly Cooper at 979-279-5499, Tiny or Susan Dean at 512-446- 2845, Mark or LeeAnn Smith at 254-697-4049. I was in attendance at their meeting on Sunday and this group is really increasing in members. Gause 4-H Club has seven members participating in the shooting sports project.

The Gause Junior High One- Act Play group placed second last week at zone competition. They were to have held a public performance of their play “A Game” at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 13 in the school cafeteria.

Everyone is invited to a baby shower for Amber Wise Reed at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 17 in the Gause Baptist Church fellowship hall. She and husband Mikel are having a girl to join son Garrett. For more information you may call Melanie Sheppard.

Remember if you want to be a part of the Gause Communitywide Christian Music Festival scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 23 at the Baptist Church’s Family Life Center, you need to contact Matthew Sanders at 979-279-6191.

This is for singers and musicians from all around the area, not just Gause. Let’s make this a great experience for all. The festival is set to begin at 6:30 p.m.

Gause ISD fourth and fifth grade students were in Bryan Monday to attend a performance of the Brazos Valley Symphony.

The Gause Bears junior high basketball teams were defeated Monday by teams from Buckholts and will travel to Dew for games on Thursday.

Husband Wayne celebrated his 69th birthday Saturday and I asked him how it felt. He said no different than the day before. I just need to know because I’ll be there, the Lord willing, in July. We, along with Leah, Kristi and Jaxon, and Chris’s brother Wesley Edmonson, enjoyed a delicious Mexican dinner at the home of Kelly and Chris Cooper, Connelly and Cameron on Saturday evening.

4-H club meets

Gause 4-H Club met at the Gause ISD cafeteria on Jan. 5 with club president Kendall Lee conducting the meeting. Calla Vinton led members in the motto, pledge and prayer, while Cameron Cooper read the minutes from the previous meeting and gave the treasurer’s report.

Previous club activities were reviewed and upcoming events were discussed. Luke Snowden, club parliamentarian, presented an informative program on parliamentary procedure. Following the program, with no further business Cameron Cooper made a motion to adjourn, seconded by Seth Vinton.

The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 2 in the Gause ISD cafeteria. Members will be addressing Valentines for our veterans.–Brittany Walker, reporter
