Gause Baptist Church held an appreciation luncheon on Sunday for Rev. Jimmy and Karen Sanders and family for their 24 years of service to the church. Rev. Sanders has resigned and will be starting a Cowboy Church in Franklin. Gause Baptist will have ministers filling in the pulpit each Sunday until a new pastor is called.

As promised, I have the schedule for the Gause Junior High volleyball and football games. On Thursday, Sept. 8, the volleyball team will play at St. Joseph Catholic school in Bryan at 3:30 p.m. Then at 5:30 p.m. the football team will be playing St. Joseph’s as well. Call the school for directions to these games. Most of the volleyball games will be on Monday and the football team will play on Thursdays.

Arbre Lynn Choates was born on Tuesday, Aug. 23 to Kelly and Brandon Choates of LaPorte. She weighed seven pounds five ounces. Paternal grandparents are Diana and Robert Choates of LaPorte. Great grandmother is Lois Wilkins and great-great grandmother is Mildred Ely, both of Gause.

Grandson Jaxon Hayles had another birthday celebration on Saturday afternoon with a pool party at the home of Kelly and Chris Cooper, Connelly and Cameron. The guys, young and old, were out in that hot weather playing a round or two of football when they weren’t in the pool. I watched them play—from the window in the air conditioned family room.
