If you have any questions about the forming and et cetera of the trial ride for the Gause Community Improvement Program’s (CIP) Founders Day parade coming Saturday, Sept. 4, please call J. Lynn Grace, 979- 279-6645. The parade will form at the school at 9:30 a.m. and if you want to be a part of this event, be there at that time. You may contact Delores Fisher, 979- 279-5707, concerning the parade. The parade begins at 10 a.m.

Be sure to have all your cake and pie your made-from-scratch items at the fellowship hall of the Gause Baptist Church by 8:15 a.m. Saturday. These items will be auctioned off as part of the CIP fund-raiser following the parade. There is a youth division and adult division in the contest.

All of you runners, be at the Gause ISD gym to register for the Sugarloaf 5K/Fun Run between 7:30-8 a.m. to register. The run begins at 8 a.m. There is a $10 entry fee and the profits go to the Gause ISD Athletic Booster Club. Medals will be awarded.

Items are still being accepted for the CIP raffle and you may get those items to me and if you have any questions about Saturday’s activities you may call me at 979-279-2472. There are still booth spaces for arts and crafts available at $5 each and you keep all of your proceeds.

Make plans to be at Founders Day for lunch as Eugene Baumann and Gause Baptist Church members sell Gene’s famous barbecue plates. Proceeds from the lunch will go into the church building fund to have for future repair needs. Looking forward to seeing you all Saturday.

Lois Wilkins is home after undergoing hip replacement surgery Thursday in Bryan. She is so blessed to have her children coming in and out to take care of her needs during this time. We wish her a speedy recovery.

Mildred Simmons has spent several days in a Bryan hospital. Hope she is home, up and around soon. Judy and Tee Jo have been in and out to see about her.

Our sincere sympathy to Kenny Sheppard and family at the loss of his mother Minnie Sheppard of Houston last week.

Also sympathy to the family of Dennis Hurst who passed away this week of cancer.

Circle Saturday, Sept. 25 on your calendar and make plans to attend the Gause Communitywide Christian Music Festival and Note Burning Celebration at the Gause Baptist Church Family Life Center. The building has been completely paid for thanks to all the efforts of the people of the church, community and surrounding areas near and far. This will take place from 6:30- 9 p.m. and if you would like to sign up to sing and/or play please contact Matt Sanders at 979-279-6191.

The first Gause junior high volleyball game of the season will be here on Tuesday, Sept. 7 against Brazos Christian.

Grandson Jaxon Hayles celebrated his birthday Saturday evening with a swim party, hot dogs and trimmings, birthday cake and ice cream. Monday, which was his actual birth date, he wanted some milk and I asked him if he wanted me to get it for him and his reply, “Nana, I’m nine-years-old.” He got the milk himself.

Sunday evening, Noah and McKensie Coldiron celebrated their birthdays with a big party at their home with the help of parents Chelsi and Jeremy Coldiron, grandparents, great grandparents, great-great grandmother, family and friends. Noah’s birthday is in August and McKensie’s is in early September so they have one big party. Noah is four now and in Pre-K and McKensie will be three. The yard was full of children all having a good time. It was fun to watch.
