Get the Easter baskets out and take Easter eggs to the Gause Baptist Church or Coats Grocery by 9:30 a.m. Saturday for the annual Community Easter Egg Hunt at the church. There will be a short program beginning at 10 a.m. in the church sanctuary, followed by the Easter egg hunt. Parents are asked to bring some type of refreshment that will be served to wind up the event. If you have children visiting from out of town, they are invited also.

Gause ISD students will be dismissed at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, April 1 for the Easter Break. Classes will resume Monday.

Third and fourth graders from Gause Elementary made a field trip Monday to Georgetown’s Inner Space Caverns.

Third through eighth grade students are invited to a Fun Night from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 3 at Gause Baptist Church. All youth of the community in the grade range are invited to attend.

Gause Community Improvement Program will meet at 6 p.m. Monday, April 5 in the Gause Community Center.

Gause 4-H Club will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 6 in the Gause School cafeteria. A ny youth interested in finding out about the 4-H program are invited to attend and all members are encouraged to attend.

There were a number of 4-H members who showed in the Milam County Junior Livestock Show over the weekend in Cam- eron. Several placed with their animals and some made the sale. Quite a few of our members who entered an art project in the home economics division of the show and all won ribbons. A “thank you” to Gause ISD art teacher Mary Neely who helped them with this event. I saw the art projects and they all did a terrific job.

The thing about art, you never know what one can do until they are given a pencil or a paint brush and given the opportunity to express themselves. Along with all the great teachers and programs we have, our school is so fortunate to be able to have the art program and to have Mary Nell teach it.

Funeral services were held in Ennis on March 24 for Elmer “Dub” Eiland. Burial was in Bristol, Texas. His sisters Lois Wilkins of Gause and Euteva Talley of Rockdale, and Lois’s daughter Beverly Nigliazzo of Hearne attended the services.

Our sincere sympathy goes to the family of Oliver “Sonny” Blakely who passed away Friday after a long bout with cancer. Oliver grew up in Gause, moved away for a number of years and then returned home. Immediate family member survivors from Gause are sister Mildred Simmons, son James “Jim” Blakely and wife Kim and two grandsons. Funeral services were held Monday at the Gause Full Gospel Church and burial was in the Milano Cemetery.
