G ause 4-H Club met June 5 for its monthly meeting.
Members discussed the many opportunities that will be available to them this summer. This week we have intermediate and senior age division Gause 4-H members going to Lubbock to participate in the annual 4-H State Roundup.
On Saturday, June 23 beginning at 9:30 a.m. all beginner 4-Hers and youth of the county from age 5 to 8 years of age wanting to see what the 4-H program is all about are encouraged to attend a 4-H Beginner’s Workshop day camp at the Gause School. There will be games, cooking, gardening, arts and crafts and much more for the youngsters. Activities will begin at 10 a.m. and will end at 1 p.m. Morning snacks and lunch will be provided. Parents wanting to know about the 4-H program are invited to come.
Several club members will be attending 4-H Camp at Lake View Methodist Camp in Palestine July 6-8. There are several activities in the county and across the state that our youth will be participat- ing during the summer months.
Gause Community Improvement Program met Monday, June 4 for the monthly meeting. The main topic for discussion was to start the planning for Founders Day Fund-raiser to be held on Saturday, Sept. 1. They will be taking donations of items for raffle prizes. If you would like to make a donation of items for this you may contact Alma Gray at 979-279-5713.
Darlene Anglen will be the person to contact if you are interested in the “made-from-scratch” cake and pie contest. These items will be auctioned off after the contest as part of the CIP Fund-raiser. You may contact Delores Fisher with your questions about the annual parade and trail ride. You can set up your arts and crafts booth for $5 and all that you make from sales is yours.
I’m sure school officials are already working on the Sugar Loaf Mountain Run as a fundraiser for the Gause ISD Athletic Boosters Club. Will have more info on that as the time draws nearer. We hope that you will be a part of this community involved project.
Start making plans for your youngsters to attend Vacation Bible School at the Gause Baptist Church July 29 through August 2. This will be held in the evenings. I will have more detailed info in the next week or so.

Told you last week about Leah having a birthday making us older than we realize. Now two of the grandchildren are hitting important milestones this week. Kendall turned 13 on June 11 and Connelly 16 on June 13–a teenager and one old enough to get his driver’s license. Great niece, Calla Vinton turned 11 on June 11. She will be going into Jr. High this coming school year.
We have several family members with birthdays this month. As many as there are I can’t remember the dates. Years back I had a calender with all of the dates written in it but it got lost in the shuffle. I’ll just say “happy birthday” to all of my family with June birthdays.
