Gause Baptist Church Vacation Bible School for ages 3 through fifth grade will be held next week, Monday, Aug. 12 through Thursday, Aug. 15, running from 6-9 p.m. each evening at the Family Life Center. Theme for this year is “Hay Day” so wear your western wear. A meal will be provided each evening. All youth are encouraged to attend.

I had the opportunity to be a part of community members to be invited to attend the Gause ISD In-Service Training program, Capturing Kids’ Hearts, last week at the Gause Baptist Church Family Life Center. We had a chance during the week to learn more about our lives, others lives and how to apply what we learned to everyone we come in contact with. Everybody get ready—the Gause ISD faculty and staff and we of the community are excited to start the upcoming school year.

A special thanks to members of the Gause Baptist, Gause United Methodist and Gause Full Gospel churches for furnishing a noon meal each day.

Jim and Mary Lee of Houston spent the weekend with us again. They came to attend the guys family (Holdiness) reunion. It was held at the Civic Center in Milano Sunday afternoon. Jim and Mary’s daughter and granddaughter Cathy and Lindsey Watson, also visited with our family and attended the reunion.

A group of young people and sponsor from the Gause Baptist Church had a fun day this past Saturday at Six Flags. I figured as hot as it was they all would come home with bad sun burn but none did. Renee’ and Jerry Vinton and Isaac, Ray Cass, Kelly and Chris Cooper were in Thorndale Saturday evening joining Desiree’ and Allen Reese and daughters and friends in celebrating Desiree’s birthday. I don’t know if my niece wants me to tell her age.

Gause United Methodist Church is sponsoring a raffle to help fund part of their church’s restoration project. Kerri Cunningham has crafted a replica of one of the beautiful church stained glass windows and donated it to be raffled.

The drawing will be held at the reconsecration service later this year once all the work is completed. Tickets are available for a minimum donation of $5 each and may purchased from any member of Gause UMC. E-mail d-r@usa.com for further information.

Three of our grandchildren now in high school and start the sports two-a-days this week. Where has this summer gone?

The Gause C ommuni t y Improvement Program will meet this week to make final plans for their annual fund-raiser at the Community Picnic Tables set for Saturday, Aug. 31. Will let you know next week who to contact for the various activities.
