Remember this week, Feb. 18-21, the Gause Parents Club is sponsoring its annual book fair. This will be held in the school library. Go and buy a child you know a book.

On Friday, Feb. 28 the Gause Junior High student council will sponsor the annual Mardi Gras dance for the junior high students in the school gym.

The GJH boys and girls basketball teams participated in the Allen Academy basketball tournament this last week. The girls won second place. Now that basketball season is over Coaches Minor and Koenig are getting the kids ready for track season—more events to see our youth participate in.

Elaine and Gene Baumann spent the weekend in Yorktown with daughter Kimberly and Chad Hahn and their children. They went especially at this time to watch Macey and Braden play basketball games.

The Gause Baptist Church Youth Valentine banquet fundraiser was a success Saturday evening thanks to all of you who came and participated. They are planning a trip during Spring Break and this fund-raiser was to help with expenses for the trip.

Gause 4-H members Katelyn Trowbridge, Abigail Miller and Kendall Lee joined other Milam County 4-Hers for a trip to San Antonio where they participated in the San Antonio Livestock Exposition Consumer Decision Making Contest. The intermediate team that Abigail was on placed fifth. Parents attending with these members were Jennifer and Donnie Trowbridge, Robert and Elizabeth Miller and Robert, Kim Lee and Wanda Lee.

After the 4-H event Kim, Kendall and I went by to see our son Craig and the progress he is making from his accident last Thanksgiving Day. He is back to work using his crutches, but is able to get around at home without them. He is still on the road to recovery which the doctor tells him will take a year from day of accident. Still a ways to go, but so much better than it could have been.
