CAPE GAZETTE - Tuesday, August 21 - Thursday, August 23, 2007 - 27 Delaware 4-H holds donor appreciation brunch The Delaware 4-H Foundation recently held its annual donor appreciation brunch at the 4-H building of the Delaware State Fair. The event is a chance for the foundation to recognize those who have made significant contri- butions to the Foundation during the past calendar year. Those in attendance were presented with plaques and awards recognizing their generous support. Among those honored was long time Delaware 4-H supporter and retired county agent Ted Palmer, who was presented with the Jim Baker Award, established by the Foundation to recognize those who have made a truly significant contribution to the Delaware 4-H Program. The Ted Palmer Leadership Endowment was established last year to honor Palmer upon his retirement from the University of Delaware in 2006. During his career with Delaware Cooperative Extension, Palmer served as Sussex County 4-H agent, Sussex County Agricultural Agent, Kent County 4-H agent and 4-H volunteer development specialist. The Palmer Endowment supports a trip to National 4-H Conference, a fitting tribute to Palmer as he had a tremendous impact upon young people throughout his' career. The Ted Palmer Endowment was cre- ate to ensure that young" people will always get the chance to learn what it means to be a leader. This year's recipient was 4-Her Megan Campbell, 17, who was in atten- dance to thank Palmer. The Delaware 4-H Foundation also formally announced the newest endowment to the growing list of endowments the foundation oversees. The Growmark Inc. Endowment was introduced this past year with a donation of $15,000 and was established to support participation by Delaware 4-Hers in national events that recognize achievement or provide distinctive educational opportunities related to agricul- ture, leadership, citizenship, envi- ronmental science and conserva- tion. These funds will help sup- port sending a Delaware 4-Her enrolled in agriculture and/or environmental science projects on a tripto either the National 4-H Congress or other appropriate national events in the agriculture and/or environmental science project area. Three Growmark Inc. representatives were in atten- dance to receive a green glass four-leaf clover representing the symbol of 4-H on a lighted wood base with a plaque commemorat- ing the endowment. This year's recipient was 4-Her Joshua Vincent, 17, who was in atten- dance to thank the Growmark Inc. representatives. The Delaware 4-H Foundation was created in 1978 to provide a way for benefactors to support the Delaware 4-H program with cash and in-kind gifts that enable 4- Hers to participate in various pro- gramming opportunities.

Market Continued from page 26 HLFM board member Lisa Zechiel, Cape Gazette food columnist Denise Clemons and self-declared local gastronome Justin Bartels in judging the tomato recipe contest. "We were looking for quality ingredients, skillful preparation and creativity - a recipe that was put together well and worked," Steele said. First prize and a $100 check were awarded to Sam Bowers for his watermelon and tomato salad. Second prize went to Mary Rawl (Auntie M) for her tomato basil quiche and third prize to Don Tilton for his fresh tomato cake.
