Plans in motion for annual Founders Day in GauseGause Community Improvemen t Program met at Gause Community Center on Monday, Aug. 2 and the main topic of discussion was the annual fund-raiser, Founders Day, to be held on Saturday, Sept. 4. Gause ISD Athletic Boosters are planning their second annual Fun Run and I will have more information on that next week.
As in the past, we will have the parade gathering at the school grounds at 9:30 a.m. and it will begin at 10. If you want to be a part of the parade, please start making your plans now. The parade entries will be judged and ribbons awarded to the winners.
Go through your favorite cake and pie recipes and bake for the Made-from-Scratch Cake and Pie Contest. Winners will be chosen and ribbons awarded and after the parade, the baked goods will be auctioned off with proceeds going to the Community Improvement Program.
Alma Gray is chairman of the raffle this year and if you have an item to donate to this activity, get it to her or me. The men’s Sunday school class of the Gause Baptist Church will sell barbecue plates as in the past and you know how good Gene Baumann’s barbecue is. They rent the booth and their proceeds go into the church building fund.
Do you have an arts and crafts idea that you would like to rent a booth for? The cost is $5 for each booth and all proceeds go to you. Now that’s a deal. If you have an idea for a booth that the CIP can sponsor, let us know. We are looking for new fun ideas.
For any information about this annual community activity, give me a call at 979-279-2472. The CIP invites you to become a part of the Community Improvement Program and the annual fundraiser activity.
There are signs that school is starting soon. This week the girls interested in playing junior high volleyball have been attending a three day camp at the school gym. Beverly Renner is their coach. Teachers have been attending various workshops during the summer and some will attend workshops at the Mumford school on Thursday and Friday.
There have been a number of interviews for teaching positions taking place. Don’t ask me who has been hired until school gets started and then I will get a list from the school as to who is teaching what.
Last Friday, family members were in Thorndale to help Desiree’ Reese celebrate her birthday with husband Allen and daughter Lilly. Joining them for an evening of supper and visiting included Ray Cass, Renee’ and Jerry Vinton, Seth, Calla and Isaac, Kristi Lee, Kelly and Chris Copper, Connelly and Cameron and myself, all of Gause. Desiree’s mother, Elaine Morgan of Milano, stopped by earlier.
Rev. Jimmy and Karen Sanders vacationed in Comfort and Fredricksburg earlier this week.
