Gause VFD Miss Flame Skyler Oldham. Gause VFD Miss Flame Skyler Oldham. First let me, as president of the Gause Community Improvement Program (CIP), along with the Gause Junior High School Booster Club and the Gause Baptist Church mens’ Sunday school class thank all of you who came out and supported the Gause CIP annual Founders Day activities on Saturday.

And a special thank you to all who helped with the activities that day, to all who made monetary and item donations, those who participated in the activities, to the judges who helped with the cake and pie contest and the parade. There is no way I could possibly name all who had a part in making this annual community activity a success—you know who you are and we thank you.

The thing about our small town, when there is something going on the townspeople are there to help in so many ways. And we thank your elected county officials who are always available to give us a helping hand. We are a blessed community.
