CIP sets annual Christmas program, meal for Dec. 3
Gause Community Improvement Program (CIP) met for its monthly meeting on Oct. 3. The annual CIP Christmas program and luncheon will be held Saturday, Dec. 3. If you would like to have a place on the program, please give me a call.
The lunch menu will be different this year. We are going to try something new. We will be serving stew and ask that you bring a salad and/or dessert. Make your plans to attend. The next CIP meeting is set for Monday, Nov. 7.
If you need some Butter Braids or cookies, the Gause Parents Club is sponsoring a fund-raiser that will end on Thursday.
Gause 4-H Club met Oct. 4 in the Gause school cafeteria. Collin Kostroun from the Cameron 4-H Club brought a very informative program about the 4-H Bass Brigade camp that he attended during the summer. After his presentation, Gause 4-H adult leaders Kelly Lee- Cooper and Elizabeth Miller presented a foods and nutrition program. Club members did a hands- on project, preparing a fruit salad.
While this was going on, other adult leaders made plans for the annual fall carnival and auction fund-raiser. This will be held on Saturday, Oct. 29 beginning with games and food at 5:30 p.m. There will be a costume contest for the little ones around 6:30, followed by the auction at 7.
If you have an item(s) that you would like to donate for the auc- tion, it would be greatly appreciated by the club. The proceeds from this activity will help send our Gause 4-H members to camps and other activities across the state that they will participate in throughout the year.
Gause ISD students have a day off on Friday as teachers will have a staff development day.
Next week we will have youth participating in the Rockdale Fair. Good luck to all.

Our middle grandson is now a teenager. Cameron turned 13 on Monday. He was honored with a chicken fried steak birthday supper on Sunday night. Now both Cooper boys are teenagers. How time flies.
School has been going on for over six weeks now. Kids got their first report cards for the school year on Friday.
