About 60 people turned out to honor those who have played a key role in inland bays protection and preservation over the years. "Tonight is about the commit- ment that many of you have made for the inland bays," explained Pat Campbell-White, chatr of the CIB Board of Directors. ",-e have tons of great volunteers and friends working to improve the bays, and I know with your help we can re- turn the bays to something we can appreciate."

Shirley Price, D- Millville; and Rep. JohnSchroed- er, D-Lewes. Bunting was recognized by Campbell-White as ''The first leg- islative helper we had, way back in 1984, when we were the Inland Bays Task Force. He has been with us all the way, and we are very grateful for his continued support." Carey, who chairs the House environmental committee, was al- so recognized for his legislative support over many years.

The' board then acted on the first leg of the project, approving a bid to demolish the old waste- water treatment plant, a move that they would have taken long ago if they had known it could be done so inexpensively, Cooper noted. The five bids opened on Oct. 14 ranged from $54,3 l0 to $192,095, with the low bidder not providing a bid bond as specified. The board approved acceptance of the second lowest bid, from Terra Environmental Construc- tion of Malvern, Pa., at $54,875.

Campbell-White credited Price as "not only a longtime friend of the bays, but also the only legisla- tor in Dover who actually works the bays as a waterman." Price and her family own a bait shop in Ocean View and net minnows, spot, menhaden and small stripers in Indian River Bay.
