Z00a00aanendael Club installs new offi .'ers The Zwaanendael Club recently installed officers for 1996 when they met for their annual member- ship luncheon. Dorothy Godwin, outgoing president, presided at the lun- cheon at Fisherman's Wharf. She reported on the many accomplish- ments of the organization from 1994-96. Joyce Schaefer of Seaford, a former president of the Delaware State Federation of Women's Clubs installed the new officers. Patricia Rockett is the president, KaTe Rockett, vice president, Tillie Boyle, recording secretary, Louella Kraft, corresponding sec- retary, Ernestine Edwards, trea- surer, Alice Naughten, assistant treasurer, Dorothy Godwin, direc: tor state board, and property com- mittee members Doreen Lyons and Anne Schulzc. In her summary of the past years, Mrs. Godwin included the arts program in which 12 mem- bers were active in recruiting, scheduling and serving as docents for a designer showcase house. They also hosted a craft and arts workshop and an old postcard program, and the Zwaanendael clowns performed at many com- munity events. Many members practice conser- vation in the Get the Drift and Bag It statewide beach cleaning effort. Also, dune grass was planted and the group participated in Adopt a Highway, recycling and carrying for shrubs and trees near the li- brary. The club gave two scholarships each year to the Cape Henlopen senior with the highest scholastic achievement and to the Beebe School of Nursing freshman with the highest average. The club also donated to the Hugh O'Brien Youth Scholarship. Members volunteered time each week to READ-ALOUD Delaware, and purchased chil- dren's books for the library. Some members were volunteer tutors for adult reading and some worked with the Sussex County adult lit- eracy program. Retired teachers were recruited to teach non-Eng- lish speaking adults to read road and food market signs. A homelife program sent many Zwaanendael members in many directions. Donated food went to the Lewes Pantry; donations were given to Meals on Wheels, the Cancer Society, Hospice, Lewes Fire Department, the March of Dimes, and the American Heart Association. Several members volunteer at the Beebe Medical Center in many departments. Members also support the Dis- abled Veterans in Elsmere with gifts and baked goods. Maintaining the 1898 club house is also of utmost impor- tance. Exterior painting, a new furnace and new draperies are a few of the major accomplish- ments. Continuing a 43 year tra- dition, the club compiled and dis- .', tributed 3,500 Lewes Telephone Directories. Proceeds from the ads and contributions from recipients provide services and help the club maintain the club house and make donations to charities that mem- bers support.
