CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August I - August 7, 1997 - 67 Bargains on the Br0adkill promises fun for all in Milton Aug. 9 By Rosanne Pack and an Italian sausage sandwich This year's BargainS on the Broadkill will host many familiar and favorite features, but there will also be new faces and even some new, fun food. Set for Saturday, Aug. 9, 9 a.m.- 3 p.m., admission to the annual event is free and it presents crafts, antiques, arts, a variety of food and flea market booths. Ed Harris, president of the Milton Chamber of Commerce said that those at- tending are in for a treat as they enjoy frequent exhibitors and ac- tivities and also meet new visitors who have signed up for booth space. "We have done some recruiting, and we are really pleased with the exhibitors that we have been able to sign up," Harris said. "We will have five new antique dealers this year. Everyone looks forward to seeing familiar faces return, but it's great to have new ones, too. Add to those, a flag maker that has not exhibited with us before, and new food booths, and we are look- ing at a great family event." Laughing, Harris admits that he was drawn to food vendors who serve up what he likes to eat. The chamber recently signed up a New Jersey maker of Italian water ice, dealer. There will also be a fresh seafood dealer, and the Milton Li- ons Club returns with the ever- popular funnel cake. Hot dogs and hamburgers will also be available along with a variety of drinks and snack foods. "All right, so I tried to attract people who make what I like to eat," Harris said. "But I know everyone will enjoy our food ven- dors." Another added attraction this year will be sidewalk sales set by some downtown merchants. Downtown Union Street is just around the comer and within easy walking distance from Milton Memorial Park where Bargains is set up between Chandler Street and the Broadkill River. Harris said that those who have indicated that they will have items out for a sidewalk sale include the new Tackle Shack, the Riverwalk Shoppe, Milton Hardware and Jailhouse Art and Antiques. "This will give our merchants good exposure, and it will let some who are not familiar with Milton know some of the things that are available in the area," Harris said. For children, there will be a va- "Extremities" performance slated for Nassau Vineyards By Rosanne Pack The language is strong and the subject matter disturbing, but it's a story that needs to be told. That is the feeling of the director and cast of "Extremities," a dramatic production scheduled for Nassau Valley Vineyard next month. Presented by the independent theatre company, Schatteboute Productions, the drama is for adult viewing, and it will serve a cause that benefits adults and children. Except for basic production costs, all proceeds from the $10 admission will benefit Families in Transition, a shelter and resource program for women and families that are victims of domestic vio- lence. Show dates are August 16, 17, 22, 23, 24, 29 and 30, and all per- formances are at 8 p.m. "My interpretation of the title and the theme is that the play ex- plores the extremes of human be- havior," said Tommye Staley, di- rector. "You see people pushed to the limit, and sometimes over the edge when they are subjected to extreme pressures." Staley said that the plot centers on a sexual attack on a young woman and how she reacts to her attacker. As the production pro- gresses, many psychological ap- proaches to denying or excusing unacceptable behavior are ex- plored. Staley said, "You will hear so many things that women tell themselves and each other, and the fears that arise when they need to tell others of sexual abuse: The women who say that they proba- bly 'asked for it' by the way that they were dressed or where they happened to be. The women who have low self esteem and who know that they will be disbelieved if they try to tell of sexual abuse." The public school teacher said that the feelings and fears are to common, and even if the subject makes people uncomfortable, these are issues that need to be confronted. She said, "We have to make ourselves deal with things that we don't do well." The director said she was very encouraged when Peggy Raley of Nassau Valley Vineyards agreed to the use of the vineyard building for the presentation of "Extremi- ties." "Since I saw 'Psycho Beach Party' there last summer, I've wanted to use this space," Staley said. "And when I approached Peg- gy, she was so agreeable. Since then, everything has fallen into place. I have the cast to carry a show like this, the location I want- ed and a worthwhile cause that we can benefit." Appearing in "Extremities" are Lee Adan, Debbie Hammond, Kane Mowrey and Georgiana Sta- ley. Seats are not reserved, but those wishing to attend "Extremities" can reserve a ticket by calling 645-9463. riety of activities, including clowns and jugglers, games and li- brary events. Youngsters may be surprised with hand-outs of free balloons and trinkets. The well- known Milton Clipper Express, a mini-train engineered by the Mil- ton Lions, will carry visitors around the park for a view of the entire set-up of Bargains on the Broadkill. A special event sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library, local author Ed Okonow- icz, will be present to sign copies of his books, "Disappearing Del- marva: Portraits of the Peninsula People" and his local ghost series, "Spirits between the Bays." From 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., Okonowicz will meet the public and talk about the more than 70 people included in "Disappearing Delmarva" and the uncounted former people in the "Spirit" series. The real people in his "portrait" book are all prac- ticing professions that are almost of another era: oyster shuckers, ferry boat pilots, soap makers, trappers and fishnet makers. Water fowl sales are already un- derway as the Great Milton Duck Race again prepares to ply the wa- ters of the Broadkill during the day of BargainS. For the price of a duck, $3 or S5 for two, partici- pants take a chance on winning $250 cash or assorted prizes. The second prize is a hot air balloon ride for two people, and the third prize is an light air plane ride for two. There will be other prizes do- nated by local Milton merchants. The rubber duck race is set for late in the day of BargainS and tickets are available from chamber members. They will also be on sale the day of the event. The event annually attracts sev- eral thousand visitors to Milton. Harris said, in addition to shop- ping and food, many of Milton's historical features such as the Governor's Walk and the Lydia B. Cannon Museum are close and available to the public. For information on space rental or events of BargainS on the Broadkill, call the Milton Cham- ber of Commerce, 684-1101.
