Winners were Grace Warner, for most original; 'Pete' Quint, funniest; Rosemary Bahan, prettiest; Nanette Cory, most tasteful; and Fern Hayes, wearing a bicycle helmet trimmed with flowers, garnered the award for 'most politically correct.' Three new board members were installed by Ann Drum- mond for three year terms, which will take the club to the millennium. They are: Renata Dupin, Colleen Hurt, and Grace Warner. The program at the luncheon was the Nautical Sounds Bar- bershop Chorus, a local chorus of 16 men led by Stephen Clyce and Ed Johnson. The group sang songs for and about women.

Buckle Up America Week May 19-26 The Delaware Office of Highway Safety wants to remind motorists to wear their seatbelts during Buckle Up America Week, May 19-26. In the United States in 1995, seat belts saved more than 9,797 lives and have saved more than 75,000 lives since 1982. In Delaware, of the 85 motor vehicle occupants killed in crashes last year, 42 were not using safety belts. Additionally, one out of every seven motor vehicle occupants injured in Delaware last year who were not wearing a safety belt received seri- ous injuries. Buckle Up American also encourages motorists whose cars have air bags to have children ride in the backseat. Also, an air bag does not take the place of a safety belt, and all occupants in a motor vehicle are urged to use lap and shoulder belts. In support of Buckle Up America Week, the Delaware State Police will be conducting a number of occupant protection check points across the state from May 17-23. iii! py!NGFROM ii Saturday - May 24th "The Wise Guys" Thursday- May 29th "Vegas b Catfish" Drive On Down to GOURMET PIZZA - WOOD FIRED ROTISSERIE - BAR GOURMET BY THE SEA A SPECIALTY GOURMET & GIFT SHOP Over 3,000 food items from around the world Vtetrl & Marlposi serving pieces Gift Baskets made up to order & sent anywhere Fresh pate, mousses & cheeses during the summer 10% Discount June, July and August when you shop before I0 a.m. daily.
