Bottom right, homemade cakes, pies and cookies are displayed before being auctioned off. Many, many thanks to all of you who had a part in making the Gause Community Improvement Program’s annual fund raiser Founders Day a success on Saturday.

There is no way I can mention everyone who supported this activity— someone’s name would get accidentally left off. This money will go a long way in helping with the projects of the CIP, including scholarships for graduates from Gause, a place for the monthly Food bank to meet, upgrades to the facilities to make it a place where people can come for shelter in case of hurricanes, family get-togethers after funerals, family reunions, etc.

Just remember when these community activities are carried out you have been a part of it by your contribution to the Founders Day activities.

The men of Gause Baptist Church also thank you for buying the barbecue plates at lunch. It was again a big success and this money goes into the youth fund of the church making it possible for activities for the youth of the church and community.

Thanks to James Todd, family and friends for heading up the trail ride from Hanover into Gause and being in the parade. The Gause VFD is always ready to load up the fire truck with youngsters and be a lead in the parade and always have our people to participate in the parade.

School got off to a great start. Volleyball practice after school,and the teams have already had a volleyball game. One away this week and at 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9 they will host Coupland.

The football players are hard at work each afternoon following school, and their first game will be at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept 12 in Buckholts.

Younger kids will start soccer games on Saturday Sept. 21. They will alternate games in Gause and Cameron. Will have that schedule next week.

Senior citizens, take note—All regular scheduled sports games played in the Gause gym (volleyball and basketball) is free admis- sion to the games for us. This does not include tournaments. Come out and support the Gause School youth. Do take note--the games really get exciting.

Former Gause resident Hilton Butler, now living in Austin near son and daughter-in-law, Larry and Carol, recently encountered some heart problems but at my last given report he is doing well in rehab. Wish you a speedy recovery, Hilton, and hope you are up and able to make a visit to Gause soon.
