It’s Vacation Bible School time in Gause, y’all

By WANDA LEE Reporter correspondent
The covered wagon that has been sitting at the Gause Baptist Church can mean only one thing–it’s a western theme for Vacation Bible School this year. All youth of the community are encouraged to attend 6-8:30 p.m. July 12-16. It is for ages Pre-K through sixth grade. Help us kickoff our Vacation Bible School with a cookout at 6 p.m. Sunday, July 11 at the church.

Gause Community Improvement Program (CIP) held its monthly meeting July 5 at the Gause Community Center. The Gause Schools A lumni Association recently donated a rack to hold the chairs they donated a few months back. The CIP very much appreciates these donations from the organization. They hold some of their business meetings at the center during the year and the building is used during their and Peaceful Rest Cemetery Annual homecoming celebrations.

The CIP recently received a $100 donation in memor y of Mr. W.M. Gray from the Gause Water Supply. Mr. Gray served on the Gause Water Board for many years and was also very involved with the CIP. Plans are well underway for the Gause CIP annual Founders Day fund-raiser. This will be held the Saturday, Sept. 4 on Labor Day weekend. If you would like to be a part of this community activity, we welcome you and your ideas. The next CIP meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 3 at the community center.

Hope you all had a nice Fourth of July weekend. Wayne and I hand a nice holiday with Kelly and Chris Cooper, Connelly and Cameron at their home out form Gause. The majority of the group spent the afternoon into evening in the pool, playing games of pitcher washers, jumping on the trampoline and all of us eating barbecue and the trimmings and visiting.

Others joining the Cooper family were Wesley Edmondson, Renee’ and Jerry Vinton and children, Kristi and Leah Lee, Bruce and Brandi Grandchamp and children, Lisa and Scott Koenig and children, Bob Mikulec, Waylon Sheppard, from Bryan Verna and Ry Rose, and from Hearne, Amanda and Tony Castilleja and children.

The nice thing about having a summer get together at the coppers, we that are not direct sun people can stay inside and have a nice view of the outdoor activities through all the glass windows. I did make it outside after dark to view the fireworks.

Jaxon Hayles returned home Monday after spending some time in League City and Lake Conroe with relatives.
