Saturday, Oct. 2 from 6:30- 9:30 p.m. is the Gause Community-Wide Christian Music Festival and the Gause Baptist Church note-burning celebration. Church members invite everyone to attend because without generous donations from people everywhere we wouldn’t have been able to pay off the note as quickly.

Barbecue sandwiches, chips, tea and desserts will be served. If you want to sign up to sing and/or play, call Matt Sanders at 979-279-6191. New flooring was installed in the gym last week and it looks great.

Norman and Linda Koch hosted the annual Koch family reunion on Sept. 25 at their country home. About 50 family members attended, from Houston, Waco, Gatesville, Navasota, Hearne, Bryan, College Station and Hanover. Sissy’s Saddle Shop Cafe in Marlow catered a barbecue meal with desserts furnished by family members. The group spent the day “catching up” and a few went for a swim in the pool.

Gause soccer teams had their first games Saturday and the youngsters looked as if they were having fun. Again this Saturday and each Saturday through Nov. 4 the games will begin at 8:30 a.m. and completed by noon.
