Baggerly, Todd recognized at Gause event

Reporter correspondent


A special thanks you to all who had a part in the annual Cemetery Association Homecoming Sunday. It takes a number of willing, dedicated members of our community to put this together each year and everyone is greatly appreciated. The weather was perfect for the “dinner under the trees.” Also thanks to everyone who had a part on the program.

Tanya Wadlington Wood served as mistress of ceremonies and did a great job. We have our regulars who have a spot on the program each year and I’m not going to name names because I would leave someone off. But be assured that they are always appreciated.

If you would like to be a part of next year’s program give me a call. And the biggest “thanks” go to you who come each year and support our Gause Cemetery Association, and if you are not able to come you send your donation to help. It was a great day and we missed you who were not able to come this year.

Mrs. Jessie Baggerly was recognized at the program as the oldest mother at age 99 and Mr. J.T. Todd as the oldest father at age 95. Hope to see them both again next year.

A special thanks to all of the people who came with the informative booths at the Gause Community Health Fair. There was a lot of helpful information there. Hope you got to come, if not maybe there will be another next year.
