Women’s exercise class offered at Gause Baptist Family Life Center

Ladies, if getting into better shape is your New Year’s plan come join others at the Gause Baptist Church Family Life Center each Tuesday and Thursday from 7-8 p.m. for a womens exercise class. It is being held in the upstairs of the building. All ladies of the area are invited.

The Gause Bears girls and boys basketball teams played in a tournament in Bartlett on Saturday. The Lady Bears came home with a first place award and the boys with the second place award. They all did a great job. Sixth grader Calla Vinton went to the game with the mindset that she would be sitting on the bench most of the time—wrong. She played and made several points. They all did so well.

Their next games will be Jan. 24-26 when they will host a boys and a girls tournament here in Gause. Make plans to go see these youth play their games. Coaches Jordan and Jacob, “the Dent Boys,” are doing a great job with these youth. Niece and nephew Desireé and Allen Reese, Lilly and Lucy treated us to lunch at a little cafe in Schwertner where he was raised. It was the first time I had ever been to either place. They gave me a tour from the cafe back to Bartlett before we went back to the games—nice places.

Hope all of you who have been feeling badly these last few weeks are much better. It was good to see Lois Wilkins in church Sunday. She has really had a time.

On Monday, Jan. 21, Gause ISD students will have a holiday for Martin Luther King’s birthday, but the school calender lists it as a Staff Development Day for the teachers.

If you have any news that needs to be in the paper please let me know. This weather we have been having keeps me inside, I don’t know what’s happening outside. I should have been born a bear, and then I’d have a reason to hibernate. But I’ve been enjoying getting caught up on reading my “haven’t read yet books.”
