80 - CAPE GAZETI, Friday, June 19 - June 25, 1998 I.R. Lifesaving Station preview set June 26 A limited number of tickets are available for sale to the public for the Friday, June 26 preview gala of the U.S. Lifesaving Station Museum and Historic Site at Indi- an River Inlet. The evening will offer those at- tending an opportunity to preview the circa 1976 Indian River U.S. Lifesaving Station as a "museum- in progress" and celebrate with many of those who have been in- volved with the restoration and museum project over the past three years. The preview gala, to be held from 6 to 8 p.m., will be catered with hors d'oeuvres created for the event by Tim Hughes of Di- vine Cuisine, who has contributed generously to the event. Guests will be treated to site tours conducted by members of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Bethany Beach Flotilla in full dress uniform and will be given special gifts of appreciation - small color copies of the architec- tural rendering of the station as it appeared in 1905, inscribed with the title and date of the event. There will also be a chance for those attending to meet and dis- cuss the project with members of the foundation board of directors and employees, the historic archi- tects from Bernardon Associates, government officials involved in the project and "professional part- ners" who have contributed sig- nificantly in the station's restora- tion under the auspices of a unique, precedent-setting partner- ship between the state of Delaware and the nonprofit, Citi- zen-run Delaware Seashore Preservation Foundation. The museum gift shop will be open for the first time that evening and guests can purchase gift items to benefit the station's restoration, including the artwork of Ellen Rice, who will be honored with the first Delaware Seashore Preservation Foundation (DSPF) Artist of the Year award during the evening. Rice will unveil and formally release limited edition prints of her painting, "The Last Watch," of the Indian River Lifesaving Station at the gala. Two artist signing periods will offer guests the opportunity to talk to the artist, purchase the lowest numbered prints available and have them specially personalized. The litho- graphs feature the station with its living commander, Milton W. Cooper, B.M.L.C., looking out to sea on the station' s last day of ser- vice in 1962. Cooper, a founding director of DSPF, will also be pre- sent at the gala to meet and talk with guests. The grand opening extends to visitors the final opportunity to purchase "The Last Watch" prints at the prepublication costs of $95, before the retail price increases to $125 after the raffle drawing the following day. Sixty percent of "Last Watch" print sales made through the foundation go directly to the project. Rice's original 24- inch-by-36-inch oil painting will also be on display and for sale during the gala, with a portion of the sale price benefiting the restoration and museum work. "We hope people will join us for this quiet social evening in cel- ebration of the culmination of the long-held dream of many people in this area," said DSPF founding chairman Clinton Bunting. "Countless people have expressed to me their happiness at seeing this unique historic site restored and preserved. We're almost there, thanks to the citizens of Delaware, the hard-working founding members of the board, the charter members of DSPF, the government officials, the profes- sionals working so diligently on the museum and so many others who have contributed to this pro- ject," Bunting said. Proceeds from ticket sales and special raffles during the gala evening, and at public grand open- i.ng festivities the next day, will help the foundation complete the final phases of the restoration pro- ject and purchase artifacts for what organizers hope will soon be a state-of-the-art museum and liv- ing history center. Tickets are $50 and may be pur- chased by calling 227-0478, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, or by sending a check to DSPF, PO Box Z, Bethany Beach, DE 19930, by June 22. -- DALLY DINNER SPECIALS' "Best Seafood at the B each" SAC seeks logo The Sussex Arts Council is looking for a new logo and Edge- hill Pharmacy will award $500 to the winning designer.
