By the time you read this I guess you are all ready for Christmas Day. Not me—I’m gonna try to remember to put a note on the fridge to take the turkey from the freezer. Or maybe first I should put a note to make a note.

At 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 20, students at Gause Elementary will present their annual Christmas program in the school gym. On Friday morning, elementary students will hold their class parties while the junior high students will go caroling throughout the community.

All students will be dismissed at 12:30 p.m. for the holidays and will resume classes on Tuesday, Jan. 8. Teachers return to school on Monday, Jan. 7.

Gause 4-H Club will meet at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 21 in the school cafeteria. They will have a short business to discuss upcoming 4-H activities for the new year after which they will be having their Christmas party and will wrap gifts that have been brought to school by students for some children in the school to make their Christmas a little better.

After this community service project is completed refreshments will be served and the group will exchange Christmas ornaments.

Our sincere sympathy to Jerry Shaw and Kyle Cass and family at the loss of their son this past week.

Our Christmas program at the Baptist Church was really nice Sunday night with “thanks” going to all who worked with the youngsters, those who sang in the chior and all who furnished refreshments. And to Mary Francis Mathews and her “crew” who did the stage design. We thank all of you who came to see the performance.

Don’t forget to make plans and attend the Candlelight Christmas services at 6 p.m. on Christmas Eve at the Gause United Methodist Church.

Shane and Chasity Nigliazzo, Swazey and Kyler hosted the Christmas get together for Lois Wilkins and her family at their home in Magnolia on Saturday. Lois is doing well with her broken arm.

Hope you all have a happy, and merry Christmas and safe trips if you are traveling. And I hope that everyone is well from all this stuff that has been going around.
