24 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 1 - August 7, 1997 Zwaanendael Women's q Zwaanendael Club members say they are often asked many times, "what do you do and what is the Zwaanendael Women's Club?" Here's the answer: The club, organized and federated in 1905, became a volunteer organi- zation of the Delaware State Fed- eration of the Women's Clubs and the General Federation of Women's Clubs. There are 36 such clubs now on Delmarva. This year, the Zwaanendael Club has accomplished many im- portant community programs. Awards were given to students of Beebe Medical School of Nursing and to a Cape Henlopen High School graduate. 1997 also marked the occasion of the forty- fifth edition of the Zwaanendael telephone directory, supplying over 3,000 .directories to house- holds and businesses with the 645 and 644 telephone number pre- fixes.

Participants in the project wilt be required to attend an educational program adminis- tered by the University of Delaware's Cooperative Exten- sion Traffic Safety program coor- dinators, who will be working with the Office of Highway Safety to administer the program. Those in need of a helmet must be recommended to the program by a police officer, social worker, healthcare official or other re- sponsible professional working with the disadvantaged. That indi- vidual will evaluate the need and make recommendations for the use of program resources. To rec- ommend a person or group for the program, the identifying agency or professional must contact, via phone, fax or letter, the Commu- nity Safety Traffic Coordinator in their area. InSussex County, the number is 856-7303; fax, 856- 1845. Although the program receives some state funding, those who are given helmets will be asked to make a voluntary donation of up to $5. Although the donation is encouraged, individuals unable to contribute towards the cost of the program will not be eliminated from the program solely for that reason. The bicycle helmet law applies to those who operate a bicycle, are passengers on a bicycle, are riding in a trailer towed by a bicycle or those who are riding on a bicycle while in an attached restraining seat. The law also states that par- ents or guardians will be fined if a child riding a bicycle is not found to be wearing a helmet. The fine for the first violation is $25, and $50 for any subsequent violations. ab reviews 1997 activities grams of the state and community, and-the Lewes Historical Christ- mas Tour in December.
