44 - CAPE GAZETTE, Thursday, December 24 - December 31, 1998 Artist Continued from page 41 al for me to dress her for the bal- let. "I didn't know what they would think of her in Washington, but when we got into the Blue Room, I could pick her out immediately." Even though she shares space on the 18-foot balsam fir with hundreds of other ornaments, the little Delaware snowdancer is centrally located right at eye level on the tree where she can be easi- ly seen. There are wooden orna- ments depicting winter sports that are created by the Society of Dec- orative Painters and a host of hand knit mittens and hats made by members of the Knitting Guild of America that are also displayed on the tree and throughout the Blue Room. Along with other artists chosen for the Blue Room, Staby-Rogers and her husband Steve Rogers were treated to an escorted tour of the public areas of the White House. They said that the decora- tions were lovely, but not so ex- travagant that visitors didn't real- ize that they were visiting a fami- ly's home. "For one thing, the White House was smaller than I imag- ined it. And, we really had the feeling that we were in a family home; it is very much a home and not just a public building with no warmth or personality," she said. "It was actually very quiet and al- most cozy the day that we were there." The historic relevance of the Friday, Dec. 18 trip to Washing- ton was very much in the minds of the couple. As they took in the Submitted photo sights of the White House, they knew that the members of the House of Representatives were debating the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. "It was very tempting to go on over to the steps of the Capitol building and see what was hap- pening," she said. "I know there were lots of people gathered there, many of them taking a stand against impeachment." Walmart support Sam's ClubfWal-Mart do- nated $2,000 to Camp Barnes Monday, Dec. 14, to support the police-sponsored, sum- mer camp for young people from throughout Delaware. Sam's Club raised $1,000; Wal-Mart contributed a $1,000 matching grant. Camp Barnes, established in 1947, offers traditional camping programs for children from age 10 to 13, with the ultimate goal of the camp being to provide youngsters with per- sonal motivation, self-confi- dence and the skills to cope in an ever-changing society. Shown are (l-r) Cpl. John Manship, Delaware State Po- lice; Camp Barnes programs facilitator; Col. Alan Ellingsworth, Delaware State Police superintendent; and Rhonda Daum, market- ing director for Sam's/Wal Mart in Dover. Staby-Rogers and her husband are avid news watchers who have closely followed the events lead- ing up to the impeachment. Steve Rogers is also an artist; he creates detailed and historically accurate model boats and ships, most of which represent styles that worked the Chesapeake and Delaware bays. The couple works and sells out of their Market Street studio and gallery.
