40 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, January 10 - January 16, 1997 Browseabout turns a page with book club starting on Jan. 12 By Rosanne Pack The possibilities of a cup of hot coffee or tea and a good book are being taken further at Browseabout Books as the down- town store offers the new caf6 area for local book clubs. An organizational meeting for those interested in a book club is set for Sunday, Jan. 12 at 4 p.m. at the store, 133 Rehoboth Ave. The meeting is open to all, and those who attend are encouraged to e0me with ideas for what they want in a club. Browseabout owner Steve Crane said the plan is to let cus- tomers be the driving force in or- ganizing and running the group. "We will let it come from the customers," he said. "We are cus- tomer service oriented, and, with the guidance of our manager, Sarah Mason, we are going to see what they want." Mason, Browseabout manager, agreed with Crane; and she said, "This first gathering is just an in- formational meeting to see what people are looking for. We will provide the place and what fol- lows will be directed by what the group wants." She said there has been some in- terest expressed by customers, and the idea for going ahead with the chosen date and time came from a customer. She said those who are interested in participating will then set a regular day and time that will best accommodate every- one. "We don't know how many will attend, and there is always the possibility that so many people will be interested that two groups will be formed," Mason said. "We have sent out a few notices for community calendars; but mostly we are !etting people, know by word of mouth. We have a couple of customers who are really en- thusiastic, and are getting things organized." The store manager said that Browseabout has some publisher- prepared information on organiz- ing book clubs and choosing read- ing lists that can be used as guides. She said some customers had mentioned organizing book clubs before, and the opening of the new oaf6 area in the bookstore pro- vides a comfortable space with ac- cess to refreshments. And, a few good books. For information, call Mason, 226-2665.

Cape Region builder A local builder, Elmer Fannin, owner of Country Life Homes, re- cently was the successful bidder for the services of a realtor group during the annual benefit for the needy auction sponsored by the Sussex County Association of Re- altors. A new twist was added at this year's auction. Staff members of gets OP&F O'Conor, Piper and Flynn offered themselves as a service-property package to be auctioned to the highest bidder. To fulfill their assignment, they acted as hosts and hostesses at the Country Life Homes' annual Christmas party held at the Planta- tions in Lewes. The auction each year supports group at auction gifts for needy children at Christ- mas time. This year it collected ' $13,000 to buy, wrap, and deliver gifts to needy Sussex County chil- dren in 130 families.
