Cape May 2/8/2006

By Rick Racela

And the lack of traffic is certainly nice, too!
Still, summer will come; it never fails.
It isn’t too early to start dreaming of those lazy summer days, or to start worrying about how to keep your kids occupied when they are out of school!
Luckily, the Cape May Recreation Department runs a Monday through Friday day camp from June 26 through Aug. 18.
The camp is for kids ages four through 12, and the curriculum includes crafts, drama, tennis, science and nature, gymnastics, swimming, beach days, field trips, sports, games, kids theater, special events, music and dance, special assemblies, a parents’ day picnic and more.
Now is the perfect time to register by calling 884-9565, so you can breathe easy when school lets out.

They are going to make “Hearts and Flowers Collages” using mementoes brought in from each home.
Judy will demonstrate how to use these with flowers to create something beautiful.
Ms. Ballinger is a local artist/teacher, who has joined the staff of the Center for Community Arts.
All gardeners are welcome. Parking available on Stockton Place.

It’s time for that wonderful annual community gathering, Cape May Cooks, Cape May Sings, sponsored by the Center for Community Arts and the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts.
This year’s event is on Sunday at the West Cape May Fire Hall, 732 Broadway.
Plan to meet someone new and share what you love about Cape Island.
Priscilla McQueen will lead the old fashioned sing-along following the potluck supper and socializing that together create a warm, fuzzy feeling inside while it’s chilly outside.
The price of admission is the covered dish of your choice to share.
Please remember to bring a serving utensil!
To sign up to share your favorite poem or short reading on the Art of Cooking, or for further information, call 884-7525.
