Baptist youth set fall carnival Nov. 2nd
Youth of the Gause Baptist Church will sponsor a community wide fall carnival fund-raiser on Saturday, Nov. 2 at the Gause Baptist Church Family Life Center beginning with a hayride at 5:30 p.m. There will be games, food and there will be a costume contest for the youngsters. (This is not a scary costume contest.)
This is an activity planned for the entire family. Proceeds will go into the youth fund for a mission trip to Tennessee this summer. Make plans to come out and support these young people of our community.
The last game of the season for the Gause Junior High Bears will be at 5 p.m. Thursday in McDade. Can basketball be far behind?
The last home soccer games for the season will be here in Gause this Saturday beginning around 8:30 a. m. There are rainout games that will be in Cameron next week.
The Gause Junior High volleyball teams finished the season on Thursday. Following the games members and parents were introduced. Trisha and Gary Shaw were in Round Rock recently to attend a cross country meet at Dell Diamond Complex in which their granddaughter, Taylor Shaw, a student at Central High in Fort Worth, was a participant. They had a nice visit with she and her dad (their son) Robin Shaw.
Our sincere sympathy to the family of Valarie Herod who passed away this past week.
Gause ISD students were well represented at the Rockdale Fair home economics division and had some winners. In the beginner division Robert Miller III was grand champion in painting and Addison Lopez was reserve champion. In the junior division, Garrett Reed was grand champion in drawings and Ryland Kirk was reserve champion. Megan Cornelius was the grand champion in the intermediate division drawing category.
My favorite part of the week is the greased pig scramble at the Rockdale Fair. Gause was well represented and there were eight Gause 4-H members catching a pig. They were Lane Koenig, Averee Wadlington, Robert Miller III, Abbigail Miller, Jayce Todd, Katelyn Trowbridge, Jaxon Hayles and Kendall Lee.
Each of these youth will raise and show an animal of their choosing or build something for the Ag Mechanics category at the 2014 Rockdale Fair. Others from the Gause 4-H Club who participated were Cameron Cooper, Haygen Wadlington, Cadence Koenig, Wyatt Koenig, Miles Koenig, Addison Corn and Lakota Seal.
Gause 4-H members who sold animals in the fair auction Saturday night were: Ryland Kirk, Colton Kirk, Raynie Cloud and Danny Cloud who sold pigs, and Ryland was the reserve champion in Ag Mechanics and sold his entry. Garrett Reed sold his commercial heifer and his lamb, Connelly Cooper, Jaxon Hayles, Kendall Lee and Cameron Cooper also sold lambs.
Cameron Cooper was grand champion with his cookies in the baked goods division and they were also auctioned. Congratulations to all of these youth, the ones who placed and the all the ones who participated.
If I have left anyone off of this list please let me know so that I can mention them next week. We are so proud of you all.
