Basketball teams play in Gause Thursday

Gause Junior High basketball teams will play here on Thursday with games beginning at 5 p.m. Any of you that know me know I’m not a big sports fan, the colleges, pros, etc., but when my grandchildren and their friends are playing that’s a whole new ballgame. Even though you may not have a relative playing in these school sports you probably have a friend that has a child there playing.

Support the youngsters of our community with what is going on in the school, church activities, etc. These young people are our future.

At 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 20, the Gause ISD elementary students Pre-K through fifth grades will present their annual Christmas program in the school gym. Make plans and attend. These youngsters do such a great job. And I might add with lots of help from their teachers. You are invited to the Gause Baptist Church Family Life Center at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16 the church’s annual Christmas program. Youngsters will be performing the Christmas story and Christmas music will be sung by the choir. There will be a time of fellowship following the program.

Gause Community Improvement Program had its annual Christmas program and luncheon Saturday at the Community Center. Special thanks to those on the program and to those who prepared the meal which included soups, stews, chili, breads and crackers, salads and desserts. Everyone seemed to had a good time.

We had some of the youngsters of the community participate on the program. Abbigail Miller read a Christmas poem, and the Daughters of Christ and Stephens Foot Soldiers from the Gause AME Church each performed a praise dance. Pastor Lester Curtis of the Gause Baptist Church brought the Christmas message. Those attending spent some time singing the traditional Christmas hymns.

For the next couple of weeks the Gause 4-H Club and Gause ISD students will be collecting Christmas items for some of those who can use a little help with Christmas this year. If you would like to be a part of this community service project let me know.

Remember to add the Candlelight Christmas Eve service at the Gause United Methodist Church to your holiday activities. It will begin at 6 p.m.

I visited with Trisha Shaw on Saturday and she and Gary have a new vehicle. The reason—they have grandchildren and other family youngsters that play sports in several different areas so this is the vehicle they travel to those activities. Smaller car, better gas mileage for their fun times. Makes sense.
