The baskets are filled according to family size and are delivered Dec. 23 and 24. This drive is the only source of income for the Rehoboth Aid So- ciety, which has been helping area families since 1966. Through the generosity of the community, families in need are helped throughout-the year. They are as- sisted with miscellaneous and medical needs and heating and fu- el bills when possible.

He said he will continue to work with-Dolly and members of the group as they work toward their goals. Elzey said that convincing legislators of the importarice of a Victim Impact Panel, and of lowering the al -' lowed blood alcohol level that de- termines drunk driving are keys to reducing the reoccurrence of of- fenses. '!Part of our job should also be to honor the law enforcement offi- cers who work So hard to appre- hend offenders and to prevent ac- cidents," Elzey said. "We have some very dedicated law enforce- rnent officers in Delaware and Maryland, and they should be rec- ognized for their DUI work." Dolly Banks said that she has spoken with some elected officials and will be contacting more, now that the initial work is done to at- tain the chapter's charter. She said everyone that she has approached, including state police and public safety officials and senators and representatives, have'been very supportive. Since Delaware is too small to have more ihan one chapter of MADD, Banks and those attend- ing the organization meeting de- cided to hold satellite meetings in different parts of the state. The new vice president lives in Smyr- na and she agreed that taking some meetings farther north than Georgetown will help participa- tion.
