Gause 4-H Club collecting coats, blankets for needy
For the month of October, the Gause 4-H Club will conduct a coat and blanket drive as their Community Service Project and they ask the community to be a part of this service to those in need. It is asked that the coats and blankets be gently used and laundered. You can get your donation to Wanda Lee and if you need more info call her at 979-279-2472.
The club met for its monthly meeting Oct. 2. It was conducted by president Seth Vinton. After the flag pledges and 4-H motto and prayer Abbigail Miller read minutes from Sept. meeting. Calla Vinton gave the treasurer report.
Members and adult leaders made final plans for the annual Fall Carnival fund-raiser to be held in the Gause ISD gym on Saturday, Oct. 27th with games for the kids beginning at 5 p.m.
The concession stand will be opening at that time also. Soon after 6 p.m. there will be the annual costume contest for the youngsters. The auction will then begin around 7 p.m. Members and parents are getting items together for the auction. If you would like to donate to this cause it will be appreciated.
This fund- raiser is ver y important to the club because money raised at this yearly activity helps send our 4-H members to the various 4-H activities that they have opportunities to attend.
Next 4-H meeting will be held on Nov. 6.—Jaxon Hayles, reporter
