CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 6 - March 12, 1998 - 29 Nicaragua Continued from page 28 he could give away the one that he. had on. "And, when they are reli- gious, they don&apos;t just go to church once or twice a week, but more like five times a week." The mission members visited local schools and different churches, and they saw the work- ing conditions that families live with year-in and year-out. Many Nicaraguans work in what McI1- value described as "sweat shops" that produce clothing and shoes, many of which are marketed in the United States. During the sea- son, many also work in the sugar cane fields. "Even the small children work during the sugar cane harvest," she said, showing pictures of youngsters as young as 9 or 10 years old. "The whole family goes to work in the fields at 5:30 in the morning; they work until about 10:30 without even eating break- fast. Then they go home and have their big meal of the day. "But even though they have been working all morning to sup- port their families, kids are still kids. When we asked them what they would do when they went home, they said, 'Go out and play!' " Included in the pictures that Mcllvaine uses to illustrate her trip are those of a school decorat- ed with bright murals and open sky visible through holes in the roof. The Cape High School stu- dent noticed that the schools are often poorly equipped and she is thinking of initiating a project to furnish some needed items for the schools that she visited. Adjusting and adapting The 16-year-old said that the peace mission experience had many meaningful components that extended beyond the face-to- face meeting with another culture. Since the members of the mission did not know each other before their Nicaraguan journey, travel- ing and living with more than 30 other teen-agers was a learning experience for all. "It was a dorm situation with bunk beds and eating in a main hall, so we had to bond within our own group as well as meet and bond with Nicaraguans," she said. Included in the mission was also the pleasure of being in a foreign country where it was warm and fun to sit on the beach at the end of December. And, there was the thrill of climbing a mountain slope and looking down into the cone of a volcano. A new tradi- tion, serenading people on their birthdays, was embraced by the Americans. Drinking a "soda through a. straw stuck in a ziplock bag was a new experience, but for people who want to conserve glass bottles, it made a lot of sense. And, living in "Nicaraguan time" was something that most adjusted to readily. "Quality of time is so much more important to them than quanity," she laughed. "I don't think that 'late' is in their vocabu- lary. If they are on their way someplace and get stopped by someone they know, they would think it was too rude to rush off, so they stay and talk. Everyone understands." Shopping in the Nicaraguan markets included the challenge of transposing the exchange rate in your head while attempting a little good-natured bargaining. Mcll- value was able to surprise her family with attractive gifts that looked far more expensive than they were. The high school junior set her sights on the 1998 Peace Mission last summer. When she learned Reho High School Reunion The Rehoboth High School Alumni Association will hold a reunion for all graduates and former students. Former students include those class- mates who attended Rehoboth High School but did not graduate due to their family moving from the area or school being interrupted for military service or other reasons. The reunion will be held at the Ruddertowne Convention Complex in Dewey Beach, on October 17,1998. Details about the reunion will be sent to all graduates and former students on or about April 1, 1998, provided the Association has recent mailing address. The Association has the mail- ing addresses of graduates who attended the 1988 reunion at Rudder- towne, but if any addresses have changed since 1988, please contact a member of the reunion committee with your new address. The reunion committee is also requesting information on graduates and former stu- dents who no longer live in this area. If you know the addresses of any of your former classmates who no longer live in this area, please contact a member of the reunion committee, Pat and Don Heam, Bob and Syd Maull, Nancy Dee, Marilyn Marsh, and Jay Young. that her application for the winter trip was accepted, she was faced with raising $2,500 for her jour- ney. "I prayed real hard, and I started having fund-raisers," she said. "At the first one, a bake sale, people came and bought stuff and told me to keep the change. I knew it was starting. We had a hymn sing at church, an ice cream social and I got a lot of private donations. "People would just come up to me when they saw me out and say, 'Here, honey, I've got something for you.' and give me some mon- ey. So, before I even went, the trip was starting to bring people to- gether." She said her parents, Bonnie and Bill McIlvaine were very supportive in helping arrange fund-raisers. McIlvaine said that she would make such a peace mission again if she has the chance. Now, she is taking her story to churches and civic groups. Included in the NJC program is a commitment to make presentations to her community. She has slides, panoramic pictures and photo albums as well as me- mentos from Nicaragua as part of her presentation. Mcllvaine said that she welcomes invitations; groups can call her at 684-4213. While on the mission, students kept journals of their own thoughts and experiences. Includ- ed in the journal is the mission :statement, which states that all can unite as a community in Christ, and that the growing experience of the Nicaraguan mission will help all live so that they can help break down barriers of prejudice and misunderstanding.. Re hoboth Boy Scouts participate in Klondike Derby Boy Scout Troop 85, sponsored by the Rehob0th Beach Kiwanis Club, spent the weekend 0f Feb. 21 at the Sussex District Klondike Der- by. This annual event is held at Hensen Scout reservation in Sharpt0wn, Md.

VIA meeting to be held March 11 The Village Improvement Association will meet on Wednesday, March 11, at 1 p.m., at Reh0both Beach Clubhouse on the Boardwalk at Grenoble Place. The guest speaker will be Mary Malloch, administrator of ANKH, Inc., who will give a presentation on the Halfway and Three- quarter Way Houses in Georgetown for chemically dependent women. "Saying goodbye was hard," McIlvaine said. "A group of the teen-agers that we went camping with came out to the airport to see us off, and some gave us gifts so that we would never forget them. "It was a wonderful experience that I will never forget. It was very cleansing." ESCAPE WITH AMTRAr ,GREAT GETAWAY FARES.
