This is the only fund-raiser that the Gause Community Improvement Program has each year and we appreciate all the help we get from people of the community and the surrounding area.

Remember that the Men of the Gause Baptist Church will be selling barbecue plates. Gause 4-H Club will be selling drinks and cookies. Come and support our community. For more info you may call me at 979-279-2472.

Everyone is invited to attend the ninth year Pastor Appreciation service for Rev. Linda Wallace at the Gause Stephen Chapel AME Church at 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 2.

Gause 4-H Club will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4 in the Gause school cafeteria. All youth interested are encouraged to attend.

I got the chance to go to the school for Open House last Thursday evening and wow, what a change has been made. All the classrooms look great and the elementary and junior high Science labs you need to see. All students’ science grades are sure to be higher, with the improvements.

When you get a chance go up and take a tour. The teachers seemed very excited about this year. Several of the grades are in different rooms this year than in the past. That may take a few days to get that straight (hopefully not for the teachers).

We have a new library that has been built between the cafeteria and junior high building. So nice. There are two new computer labs, one for elementary and one for junior high.

New Junior High Athletic Director is Jacob Dent who will be coaching all boys sports with the assistance of Jordan Dent who was an assistant last year and did a great job. We are pleased to have Jacob and wife Lauren back in our area.

These young men have lots of ties to Gause. They are the sons of Craig and the late Becky Dent, grandsons of the late Jan (Susie Todd) Dent and Billy Ray Dent and the great-grandsons of J.T. and the late Brunell Todd. J.T. you have something to be very proud of in these two young men.

Our community is very lucky to have them come back to Gause.

Beverly Rinner will be coaching volleyball.

Renee’ Vinton and Kel ly Lee- Cooper are Gause Junior High cheerleading sponsors. I’m hoping to have a list of all teachers and staff next week.

Sports practices started Monday. The first football game will be a scrimmage in Normangee beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 13. Then on Sept. 20 the Bears will be playing Brazos Christian at Brazos Christian at 6 p.m.

The GJH volleyball girls will begin play on Wednesday, Sept. 5 here in the Gause gym against St. Joseph of Bryan. This will begin at 5 p.m.

You can pick up a schedule of these sports activities at the school.

The Gause ISD Booster Club meetings will be held the second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. The first meeting will be Sept. 11. Annual dues are $5 per person.

The first cross country event will be in Lexington at 10 a.m. Sept. 8.
