CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 13 - March 19, 1998. 27 Fellowship AARP group forming; meeting slated For almost a year, a small group of men and women 50 and older, most of them still working full or part time, have been meeting off and on as an informal group of in- terested AARP members in devel- oping activities and programs for their members. Most of those who have assem- bled have been unable to take ad- vantage of the regular AARP chapters that meet in southern Delaware since they all meet dur- ing the week, mostly at midday. And so, Jacob Bell, a card-car- rying member of the Seaford chapter of the AARP, is trying to start an alternative group of na- tional AARP members who are unable to meet during the day with the local chapters. The group that has formed does not have an official name but is seeking interested men and women who are looking for fun and fellowship and educational programming to attend the next meeting, set for Wednesday, March 25, at 6:30 p.m., at Britts Restaurant, in Laurel. This gathering will be a dinner meeting and those who attend will be able to order off the menu. Reservations are a must by calling Bell at 846-0701. The immediate plans for the group call for planning warm weather activities for not only adult members, but also their fam- ilies. One of the items on the agenda is a Shorebirds game. All are welcome and at present, there are no dues or formal mem- bership procedures. Call Bell for more information. Obituaries Continued from page 26 ly, in 1994.
