Vacation Bible School at Gause Baptist Church has been rescheduled. It is now set for July 12-16 from 6-8:30 p.m. each day.

Gause Community Improvement Program met on June 14 at the Gause Community Center. The group discussed the upcoming CIP Founders Day fund-raiser set for Saturday, Sept. 4. We hope you will be a part of this activity and if you have any suggestions to make it better, the next CIP meeting will be Monday, July 5. Come share your ideas.

Our friends and neighbors here in town have been so gracious in supply ing us w ith tomatoes, squash, cucumbers and such this summer. My family has really appreciated them. But, if your mouth is watering for “fresh” vegetables and your neighbors don’t have a garden, I know just the place to go and buy your inseason items.

Leroy Willard will be turning his game room into a vegetable stand on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. He is located at 4891 County Road 343 out from Gause. If in doubt about the location, give him a call at 979-279-5441. If you have ever eaten any of his produce, you know how good it is and if not, give him a try. I’m ready for the watermelons to get ripe.

I was on the campus of Texas A&M University last week for Texas 4-H State Roundup. Gause 4-H member Luke Snowden participated in the sheep and/or goat demonstration category.

His brother, Benjamin Snowden was a recipient of a $16,000 San Antonio Livestock Show scholarship on Friday. Congratulations Benjamin. He will be attending A&M in the fall. These young men are the sons of Phyllis and Chip Snowden.

On Thursday, I joined Evan McCoy of the Rockdale 4-H Club as he participated in a new 4-H state contest, Wildlife Contest and Workshop. This project I’m hoping to get started in our local 4-H Club and with any other Milam County 4-H member that is interested. We had a great week there, even in the much needed rain on Wednesday.

We have a new business opened up in downtown Gause, next to Coats Grocer y where the old cafe used to be. It is an organic vegetable stand. Go by and see what they have and welcome them to the community.

Mr. and Mrs. Ivan Crouch of Many, Louisiana visited in Gause over the week with Ida King, Ida and Larry Morgan and Bobbie Hairston.

Bobbie also sent some time with her cousins Mr. and Mrs. Billy Crouch and Maria Crouch on Saturday in Cameron.

Donald Cryner was visiting in Gause Friday with Bobbie Hairston. He has been working in Colorado.
