Lower 2/8/2006

By Christine Cote

If you don’t have a special person to spend the day with, try to lighten up someone else’s day, it will make you feel good.

I’ve heard winter’s threatening to raise its ugly head.
Well, I say bring it on. It’s only a little over five weeks till spring.
We can take it.
It won’t be long until those spring flowers start popping through.

Tomorrow the Lower Township Chamber of Commerce will meet for lunch at Little Italy II in North Cape May at 12:30 p.m.
The guest speaker will be President Peter Mora from Atlantic Cape Community College.
If you haven’t taken a ride over to see the new campus in Court House, you really should. It’s something we can all be proud of.
Call 884-7703 today to reserve a spot for lunch.
If you are a business owner, the chamber would love to have you join them.
There may still be time to get into their directory. If not you can still make some networking connections.

Our library will be displaying another quilt by the late Dorothy Doan.
This one illustrates the history of the county in 35 appliquéd squares.
There are also glassworks on display, which were made in Clayton in the early 1900s.
This “From the Sands of South Jersey” exhibit is being shared by resident Jean Chiemingo and Jane McNutt of Middle Township.
The Aquarian Project will put the spotlight on trees this month by setting up an exhibit of the interaction between art and nature in the library’s showcase, with some paintings and photographs of trees as part of the display.
Students of Rich Flanagan of Flanagan Art and Framing in West Cape May will also grace the library with the paintings in pastel, oil and acrylic.
As usual, there are many things to see at the library.

It’s a guessing game at the main branch of the library in Court House.
Stuffed dolls depicting characters from children’s books will be on display and the challenge is to guess what book they are from.
Even if you don’t know all the answers, you might find some new titles to share with your child by trying to work out the answers or rediscover an old favorite.

That’s all I have to report.
Remember it’s Black History Month and in light of the recent deaths of Coretta Scott King last week and Rosa Parks months ago, there’s a lot to reflect on this month.
***
Have a good week.
Get in touch if you have something to share.
