Hope you all had a nice 4th of July holiday. Wayne and I and granddaughter Kendall Lee visited and had a delicious barbecue lunch July 4 in Bryan with Lance and Teri Lee and Jordan and their friend, Nick from Carmine.

Chris and Kelly Cooper, Connelly and Cameron, Kristi Lee and Jaxon spent the July 4 at Lake Conroe with Dan and Maxine Cooper. They stayed until after the fireworks display that night.

Ashley and Alexis Atkinson of New Braunfels visited here last week with their grandmother, Barbara Paschell.

Our sincere sympathy to the family of Larry Wayne Bennett.

Gause 4-H members, Katelyn Trowbridge, Abbigail and Robert Miller joined other Milam County 4-Hers for a Clothing Workshop at the Milam County Extension Office on July 2 in Cameron. They started their session by “Marbling Your Fabric with Shaving Cream,” and each made their own pillowcase. Another activity was learning to use the sewing machine and they made baby blankets. After a pizza lunch they took the blankets to the Place of Hope Pregnancy Center in Rockdale.

Lots of activities planned for the annual Professor D.S. Smith Family Reunion beginning on Friday, July 19 when you of the community are invited to the home of Dorsie Wilson here in Gause for a good time of visiting and lots of good food. This gets underway at 6:30 pm.

Blake McBee spent last week visiting his maternal grandparents in Sulphur Springs.

Edith Smith recently attended her 71st high school reunion. She is a graduate of Cy-Springs High School. The gathering was held at Bear Creek Park. Nine members from the graduating class attended. How about that—71 years ago. Edith spent the weekend with her sister, Lucille Anderson.
