Gre at new s, t he Gau se Baptist Church Family Life Center is paid in full. Thanks to all of the pledges of church members, donations from people not only of the church and community but those living away from Gause now, and to all who participated in the fund-raising activities the church sponsored. Our church and community has been blessed with this facility.

Gause Baptist Church is sponsoring a group of youth to AIM Camp (formerly FIRM Area Pre-Teen Camp) this week. The group left Monday morning and will return on Friday.

Also Monday morning, the Gause Junior High cheerleaders and sponsors Kelly Lee-Cooper and Renee Vinton went to Texas A&M University for a week long cheerleading camp. I don’t know all the girls’ names who are attending, but will try to have that next week.

The Clover Kids 4-H Beginners Workshop held here Saturday and sponsored by the Milam County 4-H Council and Gause 4-H Club was a big hit. Workshops held at the day camp included leather working, nature experiences (there were little green frogs hopping in homes Saturday evening), sun bead bracelets, identifying bird beaks, food and nutrition (some kid friendly and easy to make recipes), herb scents, cookie decorating and recreation. After all the activities, lunch was served. Special thanks to all of the adult and older 4-H members who presented the programs.

We have several who have been in the hospital recently and best wishes that they are on the road to recovery. They include Shirley Todd, Garland Lange and not from Gause but with relatives and friends here, Charlie West from Cameron who had back surgery last week.

Need a kitten? Bobbie Hairston has a few that she would like to give away to good homes.

Ouida King, Ida Morgan and Bobbie Hairston recently enjoyed a visit from Mike Musselwhite of Eagle Rock, Virginia, Cheryl Murray and three children, Jacob, Danny and Sara, from Spring.

If you are hunting a flowering shrub or tree that doesn’t take a lot of care, get a crepe myrtle. This past winter and spring season really paid off for the crepe myrtles. They are beautiful all over town and the area.
