34 - CAPE GAZETYE, Friday, December 11 - December 17, 1998 Memories and hope fight Fet00tival of Trees 1998 By Rosanne Pack Those who visited the 1 lth An- nual Delaware Hospice Festival of Trees in Georgetown last week- end, Dec. 4-6, were treated to more decorated trees and wreaths than ever before in the history of the holiday fundraiser and memo- rial event. There were 45 individually dec- orated trees and 49 wreaths lining the walls of the William Carter Rosanne Pack photos At the Delaware Hospice Festival of Trees in Georgetown, the brightly decorated tree sponsored by the VFW Post 7447 attracts (l-r) Sharon Jones, Michele Tisher and 2-year-old Courtney Tisher, all of Milton.

Some key things to remember when beginning a new program: don't overdo it. Use common sense and listen to what your body is telling you. If you throw cau- tion to the wind and get injured, your plans on getting fit will be waylaid again. Approaching your Partnership Center on the Delaware Tech College campus. Each tree and wreath was spon, sored by a business or organiza- tion with ornaments chosen or de- signed to carry out a theme and color scheme. Many of the trees and wreaths are now on public display in office buildings; some went to agencies and shelters where they can be en- joyed by those who might not have their own tree. Nancy Dorman of Seaford, co- chairwoman of the Sussex County festival, said that those who orga- nized and coordinated the George- town event are happy and grateful for its success. She served as co- chair with Peasie Glassco, Mills- boro. Dorman said approximately 285 people attended the opening night gala and auction, and hun- dreds more came during the week- end to see the trees and wreaths. Many came to pay respects to memories of those who benefited from the services of hospice. "We had more than 300 people attend the annual memorial ser- vice Sunday afternoon," Dorman said. "No one person can take credit for the success; we had such a great group of volunteers and such support from the communi- ties. Each year, we've grown in visibility and size." Delaware Hospice Executive Director Susan Lloyd, M.S.N., R.N., said the volunteers provide the energy that fuels the annual festival of trees. "It was just a lovely event," goals in a sensible manner will get you the results you really need to get to the point where you can en- ter the advanced aerobic classes and you won't feel self-conscious, or at least not as much so, upon entering the gym. Remember, you cannot, get fit in a month; it just can't be done. Set your goals for getting fit in 12 months. In the long run, that's not a lot of time, and your body will thank you for it.

More on walking at a later time, we were talking about pain, were we not? Our average woman should aim for walking a minimum of three times per week - even if the weather's less than perfect - and coupling her walking with a resis- tance or strength training program. Strength training builds muscle, burns fat and increases metabo- lism. And who doesn't wish for a faster metabolism? There are personal trainers at most of the local fitness clubs who can assist anyone with strength training goals, or with some inge- nuity, she could begin on her own. She should begin slowly, cOnCen- trating on the major muscle groups first - back, chest, quadn- ceps, hamstrings - then moving on to the smaller muscle groups - I;i- ceps, triceps, calves and shoul- ders. She could use dumbbells, resis- tance bands or her own body weight by performing push ups, tricep dips, squats and lunges.
