Lots of Christmas celebrations, travel

Hope you all had a great Christmas time. We had our Cass family get-together on Sunday, Dec. 23 from the usual Christmas Eve and we had more family members in attendance, some that had never been able to attend before. We had a great time with an Italian theme for the food, the annual Chinese Christmas gift exchange and a good time of visiting.

My count was 45 attending coming from Bryan, Milano, Caldwell, Lexington, Rockdale, Thorndale, San Angelo and Gause.

I’m sure there were plenty out hunting during the holidays. Our group went a few times. Kendall got her first ever deer and Cameron killed a hog on one of the trips.

Donnie McBee, son Keith and grandsons Dustin and Blake went to Sonora for a deer hunt after having family Christmas on Christmas Day. Haven’t heard what kind of luck they had. Maxine visited with relatives in the Houston area and Teresa and her mom visited with relatives in another state while the guys hunted.

The Gause 4-H Club gives a special “thank you” to all students of the school and adults of the community who participated in the community clothing and toy drive for some youngsters of the community to have a better Christmas. We had a great response.

Wanda and Alfred Coats had a delightful Christmas, first celebrating with daughter Sherri and James Rasco, their children, grandchildren and James’ family members in Hearne. Their next party was with son Ray and Paula Coats, their children and Paula’s family in Bryan on Christmas Eve. Christmas Day all the families gathered with Alfred and Wanda at their home Gause.

Mary Nell and Travis Neely joined their son and daughterin law Travis and Merideth on Christmas Eve for a celebration in Hearne with Merideth’s family, Dave and Judy Keeling. Christmas Day they went to College Station and celebrated with Teresa and Mike Eaff, Hayden and Allyson.

Everyone is invited to a baby shower for Merideth Neely at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan 6 at the Dudley Varner Methodist Fellowship Hall here in Gause. Selections are at Target.

Gause Community Improvement Program will meet at 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 7 at the Gause Community Center. Everyone is encouraged to come and be a part of this community program.

If any of you have some Christmas news that I didn’t know about give me a call and we will get it in next week.

Teachers start back to school on Monday, Jan. 7 and student classes will begin on Jan. 8. Enjoy this week.

Our granddaughter Kendall joined her aunt, uncle and cousins for a trip to Alabama to visit with relatives. She has been sending back pictures. Looks like she has been having a great time. I’m anxious for her to get back and listen to all of her tales.
