Stories of Pirates, Blackbeard, Captain Kidd and Buried Treasure were the starting point of the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts “Tales of Olde Cape May” presentation at Cape Christian Academy, Friday February 27. Though one might think such surly characters existed only in storybooks or on some distant Caribbean island, evidence of their presence along the Cape and Delaware Bay is well documented. Once the students interests were sparked, MAC representatives, Ginger and Frank Killino, dressed in Victorian period dress, talked of early waterway and rail transportation in the Cape, during the days when these were the main modes of transport. NJ History is a vital part of the curriculum at CCA and MAC programs reinforce what’s taught in the classroom in a visually engaging way”, says school representative.
