Dennis 3.29.2006

By Rick Racela

I don’t remember Lent being this long.
Of course this is the first year I’ve attempted to give up certain beverages. 
Oh, wait a minute, there was the year I gave up chocolate ice cream.
I don’t think that was really “kosher” because coffee ice cream is my favorite – now that would have been a sacrifice. 
Mark your calendar for April 11 to join your community at the elementary school for an informational budget  question and answer session.
This is your last chance to know what you’re voting for (or against) on April 18.   A knowledgeable voter is always welcome at the polls.
 As long as you’re marking your calendar, don’t forget to include the Dennis Township Education Association’s Open House Night on April 12 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the elementary school cafeteria. 
 Stop by and check out all the exciting things going on in the district. 
 Teachers will display projects from their classrooms for you to check out.   I can’t be sure, but I’m thinking there should be some great stuff from all parts of the curriculum.  Science class, art projects and all kinds of interesting stuff will fill the room.   Don’t miss this opportunity.
 Here’s some great news from the Roller’s house.   Alyssa made Dean’s List at Muhlenberg College her first semester away from home.
 Not bad for a freshman.  How about your college kid? 
 Any exciting news to report?
 As long as we’re talking about the Rollers, how about Brielle speaking at the American Heart Association’s kick off dinner at the Linwood Country Club?
 Brielle spoke to a nice size crowd about the money needed for research to diagnose and treat heart conditions that affect people of all ages.
 Join the Heart Association for their walk-a-thon on May 20 at the Ocean City Boardwalk.
The Home and School Association would like to thank their sponsors for Family Fun Nite.
 Campbell’s Mini-Golf, Santo’s Pizza, Otter Creek Imaging, The Boot and Bridle, The Book Shoppe, The Gem, Hale Bike Shop, Cape May Wicker, Just Sports, Deauville Inn, Inspirations Party and Craft Supplies Yo Dude Surf Shop, Southville Corner, Avalon Coffee, Teaberry Antiques and Mousetrap Bowling Lanes. 
Of course, thanks to everyone who participated and helped make this a successful event.
The Upper Township branch of the County Library is getting kids more involved in books.
That’s no stretch but here’s how they’re doing it – a Book Club for Kids.   Call them at 886-8999 to get the details.
Discussions, crafts and refreshments –  Oprah’s got nothing on this Book Club.
 There’s an Umpire’s Clinic at the rec on April 12.
 Call the rec a t 861-1045 for information.
 The athletic talent in this township just keeps getting better.
 The Cape-Atlantic Junior All-Star team has a few familiar names.
 Recognize these kids?   Allison DiDonato, Devon Schmolk, Tamara Gonnam, Jeff Hamer, Tim Dougherty, and Connor Dean. 
 These athletes were part of a team chosen to represent Cape May County and will be playing in Atlantic City. 
 Ahhh, the pick and roll.
 Until next week, call me with your stuff.
 Plan on voting on April 18. 
 Remember what Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” 
 Call me.
 Easy does it at Rt 47 &  83.
