CIP senior scholarship applications due April 30

By WANDA LEE Reporter correspondent
In case you missed last week’s column, graduating seniors from Gause, it is time to fill out your application for the Gause Community Improvement Program’s $200 scholarship. Two of these will be given and applications need to be to me by Friday, April 30.

Elaine Baumann and friends of Pin Oak Cemetery Association cordially invite you to the dedication of the Pin Oak Cemetery Historical Marker at the cemetery, located at 10530 FM 2095, at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 24. Please bring your lawn chairs.

I hope you are making plans to be in Gause on Mother’s Day May 9 for the Gause Cemetery Association’s annual Mother’s Day Homecoming. The program will be held at the Gause Baptist Church this year and if you would like to have a part on the program, please give me a call at 979-279-2472 as soon as possible.

The program begins at 10:45 a.m. followed by a covered dish dinner at the community picnic tables next to the church. I’m looking forward to seeing those of you that I haven’t seen in a year and the ones that haven’t been here in several years.

George Medford Lambert and Virginia Ann Carroll Lambert commemorated their 60th wedding anniversary on April 1 by affirming and renewing their marriage vows in a ceremony at the Church of the Nazarene in Bryan, the church in which they were married. They were attended by Barbara Lewis Cox and Claude Austin Lamber t, the bridesmaid and best man in attendance April 1, 1950. This ceremony was performed by Rev. Lonnie Green, church pastor.

The Lamberts met on Feb. 14, 1949 and married the following year on April 1. Many laughs about that. On Saturday, April 10 their children, Med Jr., Linda and Juanelle, nine grandchildren, 24 great grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren honored them with an anniversary party with family and friends at the Full Gospel Church in Gause.

The Lamberts’ home was in Fort Worth for 53 years and now they live with their son and daughter-in-law in Gause. I think all who attended will agree that it was a wonderful and fun time.

First and second graders from Gause Elementary School took a field trip to the Waco Zoo on Tuesday.

Report cards go out Friday and can you believe only one more six weeks and school will be out from the summer. And we have a grandson that will be graduating for eighth grade and going into high school. Wow.

Visiting with Wanda and Alfred Coats this past week was her cousin Charlene from Ennis. On Thursday, Wanda, Lois Wilkins, Mildred Bowling and Charlene went to Houston and their first stop was a visit with Lois’s daughter Diana Choates who joined them for the remainder of the day. Ray Coats joined them and they had lunch with Earline Mills, after which they visited with Allie Mills and had dessert.

Visiting with Edith Smith several days last week were her nephew and w ife, Roger and Chris Mullins of Conroe. They came to help Edith get her garden going.
