Ladies' Shrimp Feast marked by quiet dignity and poise Approximately 400 women attended the Ladies' Shrimp Feast at the Lewes Volun- teer Fire Department's substation in Nassau on Feb. 28, where a few token men were allowed on the premises to cook, serve and clean up after the women. Ladies at the Shrimp Feast were treated to fine dining, elegant beverages and dancing. The women-only event began eight years ago, when Lewes firefighters initiated the dinner to offer women their own special event on the same night as the men-only Oyster Eat held in Georgetown. Sue Erv, who served as one of the models of behavior in a Dover group, held up her glass in a toast and said, "The Dover girls were the first to drop their drawers!" "We can let our hair down and just be women, and just do what women like to do together," said Kim LeBorys of Havre de Grace, Md. Other ladies indicated that they enjoyed the women's party and were partic- ularly delighted that the men in their lives. were at home babysitting or waiting for them. Below, the male servants prepare food for the fire department's guests. Shown are (i- r) John Baker, Gilbert Holt, Bernie Bowden and Gilbert Holt Jr. T I Kerry Kester photo
