Family members of the late Ossie and Lula Shaw gathered Saturday at the Gause Baptist Church Family Life Center for their annual family reunion. A good turnout of relatives and friends is reported and lots of good food and visiting. A special day also as they celebrated the 93rd birthday of Delmo Shaw.

Spending Saturday with Donnie and Maxine McBee were Donnie’s sister-in- law, Edith McBee and Stephen and Daniel of Huntsville, Teresa and Bobby Olegsby and son Christopher of Bryan, and Josh and Kristina Brooks, Colby, Princess and Conner. Conner is the little one we had on our prayer list at church the first of the year. He had to have heart surgery and Maxine reports he is doing fine and getting around as all healthy little ones do. Teresa and Keith, Blake and Dustin joined the group Saturday afternoon.

After Sunday school, Donnie and Maxine went to Tomball to help his sister-in-law, June McBee celebrate her 84th birthday.

Gause students attending area high schools and playing volleyball and football have started their practices for the fall games.

Judy Alford Woods has been in the hospital. Our wishes are for her to be feeling better real soon.
