Woodbine 4.19.2006

By Rick Racela

We were delighted to hear that the “girls” (their term, and in quotes) of Sunflower Sundries are now and throughout the month of April collecting donations for Project “Fairy Godmother.”
That means they help to provide young ladies with all that’s needed to attend their proms.
As you may recall, back in December, Sunflower Sundries (which is located at 540 Adams, just across from MG’s Market) held a Girlz Nite Out to support CARA.
Current items of interest include party dresses, gowns, shoes, handbags, wraps, jewelry, and hair accessories.
Drop them off at the shop this month, and do a little pre-Mother’s Day shopping of your own while you’re there.
Sunflower Sundries is open Fridays, Sundays, and Mondays from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
For further information call 432-3216.
Speaking of MG’s as we were tangentially above, one of hubby’s favorite Saturday-in-town diversions is to browse and buy with me at Sunflower Sundries and The Palace down the block and then treat me to meat pies and other delights at MG’s in one fluid errand run.
Woodbine Municipal Court will be held April 24 at 2 p.m.
Woodbine Municipal Utilities Authority meets that night at 7:30 p.m.
Woodbine Elementary School reopens April 24, not 22 as reported in the last column, from Spring Recess.
Woodbine Board of Education will meet April 25 at 6:30 p.m. in the school library for its reorganization meeting, which will be followed by a regular monthly meeting.
Opening Day for the Cape May County Little League baseball and softball on April 29, at Woodbine this year, in our Lincoln Park.
Team pictures will be taken throughout the day starting at 8:15 a.m., with games scheduled at 9, 9:30, 10, 10:30, 11:30 a.m., noon, 12:15, 1, and 2 p.m.

Four different fields will be in use at the Lincoln Park recreational area.

Proms: a rite of passage for American teenagers and thus an expandable topic for a sociological paper.
We’ve all read about the Katrina “prom dress drops” that aim to give these young people whose lives have been so disrupted a small piece of their senior year back.
You read above about the project that Sunflower Sundries is involved in.
Hubby asks, “What will the boys wear? Are there collections of tuxedoes also going on?”
Are proms ultimately a rite of passage more so for young women, and then what of the passage of those of us who never experience the ritual of the prom?
Ah, the papers on proms could fill a conference, and maybe a few more columns.
