Cape May 3.8.2006

By Rick Racela  Cape Island is emerging from hibernation, and I’m noticing lots of “help wanted” signs around town. Obviously, many local businesses rely on seasonal workers during the busy season, but the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts (MAC) in particular needs a veritable army of part-time employees to make the many tours during the summer run. If you would be interested in working for MAC, you should attend their job fair at 6 p.m. on March 13 in the Carriage House on the grounds of the Physick Estate, 1048 Washington Street.  Attendees will hear a brief overview of MAC, learn about available positions within the organization, and have an opportunity to fill out an application and receive an interview that evening. MAC needs workers to guide visitors at the Physick Estate, to work at the lighthouse, to drive trolleys, sell tickets, work retail, and more. You’ll meet lots of people and have fun. Call 884-5404 for more information. *** Cape May Recreation is again offering Wee Play for parents and children ages 18 months through three years of age at the Franklin Street Civic Center on Thursdays from 9:30 to 11 a.m. This class provides a special one-on-one time for parents and toddlers through gym activities, action songs and age-appropriate projects centered on a weekly theme. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. For more information please call Cape May Civic Affairs at 884-9565. The Cape May City Recreation Department and Cape May D.A.R.E. program are sponsoring dances for students in grades five through eight on March 10 and 24 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Cape May Convention Hall.  Cape May Juvenile Officer Tony Genaro will provide disc jockey services to become even more involved with area youth.  It’s a great night out and you know your kids are safe. For additional information call Cape May Recreation 884-9565. *** The March Meeting for the Garden Club of Cape May will feature Karin Parker, a floral designer with the florist shop Country Greenhouse of Seaville.   This is an old family business of Cape May County and they are associated with Blooms USA.   Karin will demonstrate her natural talent with large arrangements.  The group meets on March 14 at 10 a.m. at the Cape Island Baptist Church.   All are welcome.  Parking is in a lot on Stockton Place. For more information call 898-6160.   *** For those of you who have missed climbing the lighthouse this winter, you’ll be happy to hear it is now open on the weekends from noon to 3 p.m.  If you haven’t made the climb in a while – or ever – I can’t recommend it enough.  You’ll feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment after climbing those 199 steps, and you’ll be richly rewarded by the beautiful view. Every time I climb, there’s something different to see, whether it’s the morning light versus the evening light, clouds in the sky versus a bright sunny day, different birds in the sky or a perfect clear view to Delaware.  For just $5 for adults and $1 for kids ages three through 12, the experience can’t be beat.  *** Thanks to everyone who shared news this week. Please keep it coming by emailing me at or leaving a voicemail at 898-8825.
