Tick- ets are $25 a person; contact the Delaware Chapter office at 302- 425-4911, for information on how to order tickets. Wild Places, Cool Spaces has a lot to offer those who attend. The seven galleries will be open dur- ing the evening for participants' review, and Catering by Design will provide hors d'oeuvres and li- bations. Attendees can cruise the galleries and bid at the silent auc- tion while relaxing to the music of Counterpoint, original Gypsy Jazz featuring Bill Belcher and Greg Fioretti.

Maryann Karinch will be at- tending as the guest speaker. Kar- inch is one of the few women to compete in the inaugural Eco- challenge adventure race held in 1995. The Eco-challenge, a dan- gerous !0 day, 376 mile chal- lenge, is only one of her many ath- letic accomplishments. She has logged 65Oskydives, is a certified SCUBA diver, avid ocean white- water kayaker, certified in person- al training and has also earned honors as a gymnast and body- builder. Her book, "Lessons from the Edge" offers insight into why extreme athletes take the risks they do and the physical, emotion- al, and spiritual rewards their ac- complishments bring. Holiday ritual can help family stay healthy the strongest times for family ritu- als to flourish, since children thrive on routines," Nelson said. "As children grow older, however, families often find they may need to modify or drop rituals that teenagers may find hollow or meaningless." Give each family member a role in helping to make family time the best it can be, Nelson suggests. Put someone in charge of get- ting out the photo albums, for ex- ample, to encourage conversa- tions among children and grand- parents. Another family member may be asked to organize a sing-along with songs that everyone knows. "New rituals can be started at any time to adapt to changes in family structure," said Nelson. "Say, you have always eaten Thanksgiving dinner at grandma's house, but this year she entered a nursing home. It is time for anoth- er family member to begin hosting the traditional family dinner, or organize a covered-dish dinner with the host house providing the turkey and guests bringing side dishes or desserts." Family rituals can be important to the health of families. Nelson says that as you prepare for the holidays, engage in conversations It's almost time again to start pulling out the good china, polish- ing the silver and getting the din- ing room ready to host the family during the upcoming winter holi- days. Participating in annual tradi- tions and rituals is one way to help families stay healthy, said Dr. Pa- tricia Tanner Nelson, family and human development specialist for Cooperative Extension at the Uni- versity of Delaware. "Family rituals help us rein- force family beliefs and values," said Nelson. "It is a good way to set aside time to relate to one an- other, strengthen bonds, make progress in healing losses and wounds, and perhaps adapt to changes in family structure that may have come about because of death or marriage." Nelson said that family rituals play a powerful role in organizing family life, ensuring that members feel secure and stable. Rituals seem especially important during times of transition and change, she said, such as when a family moves into a new neighborhood, or when families are blended following a second marriage, or when a loved one is lost through divorce or death. "The child-rearing years offer aillbAmmll CdllaYm that will connect family members and different generations. While it may be ideal to cele- brate with the whole family, it is not always possible or practical. Plan to telephone distant family members, Nelson said, or write a note to one of your favorite rela- tives expressing what you most appreciate about her or him. "It is important to any family's well-being to express love and ap- preciation for each other," said Nelson.- "Nurture the gratitude attitude every day of the year, and, during the winter holidays, make a spe- cial effort to communicate that ap- preciation."
