Can Monday be May Day already?
Time to gather up the overabundance of baskets in the cellar, pick from whatever remains in bloom by then, and skip merrily through the neighborhood delivering blossoms.
Just a reminder that the Cape May County Little League season’s Opening Day is this Saturday, and is being held here in Woodbine’s own Lincoln Park, just off Route 550.
There are games scheduled throughout the day and on all four fields, at 9, 9:30, 10, 10:30, 11:30 a.m., noon, 12:15, 1, and 2 p.m.
Opening Day is Photo Day for all teams.
Pictures for Woodbine Minors (softball) will be at 8:30 a.m. followed by a game against Dennis 5 on Field 4 at 9 a.m.
Pictures for Woodbine Minors (baseball) will be at 11:15 a.m. followed by a game against Sea Isle City on Field 2 at noon.
Pictures for Woodbine Majors (baseball) will be at 9:30 a.m. followed by a game against Sea isle City on Field 1 at 10 a.m.

AARP meets May 4 at 11:30 a.m.
Woodbine Borough Council meets May 4 at 7:30 p.m.
May 4 is also the 2006 Student Government Day at the Woodbine Municipal Complex, where the eighth grade of Woodbine Elementary School meets the Mayor, Councilmen, and municipal employees.
We’ve also held a special “Student Government Day” for homeschooled eighth graders in years past, so:
If anyone with a Woodbine-residing eighth grader attending any private school, or being homeschooled, would like a chance to meet the Mayor and tour the municipal complex (or rather, have your eighth grader have a personalized “Student Government Day” experience) call Maryjaye in the Mayor’s office at 861-5301 to schedule a visit.
We’ll have more about our Arbor Day commemoration coming up, but for now we’ll just mention the nearly one-hundred tubeling trees sitting in the office of the assistant to the Mayor.
They were delivered a week earlier than expected, and should once again be a part of our student celebration of the environment.
A bit belated, but goodbye to Father Dan DiNardo, who conducted the Spanish Ministry here in Woodbine at St. Casimir’s.
Greetings (again) to Father Cesar Rebolledo Ramirez, a Franciscan, who is now coordinator for the Spanish Apostolate of Cape May County and in residence at St. Casimir’s.
Councilman David Rodriguez has received a certificate from the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy Center for Government Services for his completion of the Municipal Elected Officials Certificate Program.
For those of you who cannot access the electronic version of the Herald, here’s a repeat of an important notice from last week’s column (which only appeared on-line):
We were delighted to hear that the “girls” (their term, and in quotes) of Sunflower Sundries are collecting donations for Project “Fairy Godmother,” which helps 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 Ave., 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-Mothers 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.
The not overly large, pinkish Bunny did appear in Lincoln Park the day before Easter, and many children were gladdened.
Pictures of the bunny (who I thought of as a “she”) appear on the Current Events section of the Borough webpage (www.boroughofwoodbine.net), as do photos of the bikepath in bloom and numerous other Borough events.
The “links” also contains a direct link to this column, so if you don’t see us in print (again) check and see if it’s online as it was last week.
