8 - CAPE GAZETTE - Tuesday, May 2 - Thursday, May 4, 2006 2006 Daffodil Days Chairpersons Continued from page 7 Daffodil Days were truly amaz- ing. To those who participated in Daffodil Days - drivers, on-site volunteers, and packers - thank you! Your efforts will hopefully ensure a world where one day no one will ever hear the words, "You have cancer." Finally, we wish to thank all of those who supported this year's Daffodil Days by making dona- tions in lieu of flowers for their homes and/or offices, as well as those who donated flowers to local cancer patients. This year, more than 16,000 cut daffodils, 1350 potted daffodils and more than 300 "Bears and a Bunch" were given in exchange for dona- tions, raising almost $24,000. Spring came a week early in Sussex County because of you. Mary Catherine Hopkins, West Sussex County Jackie Sopa, East Sussex County Some observations from older generation Why is it ?? Boardwalk signs say: Do not feed seagulls!! The people who feed them also complain about being "buzzed and bombed" Must not be able to read. Boardwalk signs say: Dogs not permitted on boardwalk or beach after April 1. If you call their attention to this law, while they have their dog on the Boardwalk, the comment: "Oh, I thought they were permitted 'til April 30." Must not be able to read. Also: Why is it that my genera- tion (over 60) cannot hear "our" kind of music (Music of your life, big bands, 1950s) locally? The only stations (AM or FM) playing "our" music are from New Jersey: Wildwood or Ocean City. Maybe our locals should advertise across the bay.

Commentary Continued from page 7 Carlisle Fire Company, Milford Memorial Hospital and several organizations that help the poor. More recently, endowment funds have been established by Kent and Sussex County resi- dents, such as Thurman Adams Jr., Richard Cordrey, Warren Allen, the late Charles Allen Jr., and many others who understand the importance of leaving a legacy for future generations. One donor, who requested anonymity, left a substantial gift to the DCF in her estate to be used by the foun- dation to respond to the state's greatest needs. The State of Delaware Fund, the Hirsch funds and other endowment funds at the DCF demonstrate the power of endow ment giving - they can fulfill the charitable goals of their donors and meet community needs far into the future. In the past 20 years, about 350 individuals, fam- ilies and businesses have estab- lished funds with the DCF to carry out their charitable giving or provide scholarships, now or in the future. In addition, more than 150 nonprofit organizations have created endowment funds to encourage planned gifts that will help secure their financial future. Through all its funds, the founda- tion has awarded more than $54 million in grants. The Delaware Community Foundation, whose president and CEO is Fred C. Sears II, serves the entire state through offices in Georgetown and Wilmington. To learn how you can partner with the DCF to help the causes that are important to you forever, please contact me at 302- 856.4393 or hleahy@delcf.org or visit www.delcf.org. Hugh D. Leahy Jr., is senior vice president for Southern Delaware Delaware Community Foundation.
