Remember that Friday is the Gause Elementary students’ Spring Fling fundraiser from noon to 3 p.m. Proceeds will go to help Jamie Czajkowski go to the power lifting Olympics.

Great turnout for our annual community Easter egg hunt at the Baptist Church on Saturday. Over 40 youngsters, plus parents, grandparents, youth who hid the eggs and community and church leaders were on hand for this inspiration and fun time. Thank all of you who donated eggs, brought refreshments and had a part in the community activity.

Lois Wilkins accompanied daughter and son -in-law, Beverly and Johnny Nigliazzo of Hearne to New Braunfels for an Easter get together with Johnny’s niece and family. Jennifer Wilkins of Canyon Lake joined them. On Sunday Lois accompanied family members to Easter gathering at the home of Sondra and Kenny Sheppard.

The annual Easter Gar- rison/Hurt family reunion was held at the country home of Trisha and Gary Shaw here in Gause on Saturday. One hundred and thirty-three family and friends attended from as far away as Florida, Arkansas, Maryland, the top of Texas to the bottom and all the way across. Following the barbecue and all the trimmings lunch there was an Easter egg hunt for the youngsters and then the annual fundraiser raffle w as held. The money from the raffle is used to buy supplies for the next year. Sounds like they had a great time.

Easter Sunday Trisha and Gary hosted the Shaw Family get-together with 23 attending.

Trisha and Gary Shaw recently attended the regional tennis meet that grandson Dillon Bankston participated in. He attends school in Thorndale. He and his partner placed fourth in doubles. Dillon is the son of Kandace and Kelly Bankston.

Family members gathered at the home of Wanda and Alfred Coats Sunday for their Easter get-together. After attending church services they had lunch and spent the afternoon visiting and having an egg hunt for the little ones.

We had a nice Easter lunch and get-together at the Coopers on Sunday. The weather was so nice we spent some time outside watching the animals. Our children were never much involved with animals but thanks to their children they are now. Had some bad luck with baby goats this last week, but it has been a learning experience in many ways.

Granddaughter Kendall Lee, a freshman at St. Joseph Catholic School in Bryan where she is a member of the track team, participated in the district meet last week. She placed second 800 meter relay and third in the long jump. She will be joining other members of the team as they go to regionals in Bastrop on Friday.
