66 - CAPE GAZETTE, Thursday, December 24 - December 30, 1998 Kwanzaa celebration slated for Jan. 2 in Milford A Kwanzaa celebration, com- plete with traditional foods, song, dance and storytelling, will be presented from noon to 4 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 2, at Faith, Hope & Love Fellowship, located on Busi- ness Route 1 in Milford. Kwanzaa is an American festi- val, with roots in the harvest cele- brations of the African continent. It is based on seven principles: Umoja (unity), Kujichagulia (self- determination), Ujima (responsi- bility), Ujamaa (cooperative eco- nomics), Nia (purpose), Kuumba (creativity) and Imani (faith). Tra- ditionally, a seven-day fete, the local celebration will condense all elements into a four-hour pro- gram. Entertainment will be presented by the Sankofa Drummers and Dancers, Primal Moves and the PHantastic Youth Drill Team, among others. The event is cosponsored by People Helping People and the Alliance for Ado- lescent Pregnancy Prevention. Admission is free and the public is encouraged to join in the celebra- tion. To take part in the program or for more information, call Sandra Redwood at 302-398-3898. Briefly History museum offers dinosaur exhibit Kids can't get enough of di- nosaurs, so the Delaware Museum of Natural History is offering them plenty of dinosaur activities and a new dinosaur exhibit. This cele- bration of dinosaurs kicks off dur- ing the week before New Year's Eve and continues through Janu- ary and February with plenty of new and fun ways to learn more about these fascinating creatures. "Dino Days," set for Sunday and Monday, Dec. 27-28, is the museum's annual post holiday event and the first in the "Dino Lineup" offered this winter. The Dinosaur Art of Mark Musy offers insight into how dinosaurs captivate people from all walks of life, including artists. One of the museum's most pop- ular programs is "Read and Ex- plore," for children ages 3 to 10. The program's theme through February is dinosaurs. Children will hear stories about dinosaurs, then participate in fun crafts and activities. Every Sunday and on select Saturdays, the "Make It, Take It" activity will feature a dinosaur-themed craft for children to take home. The museum's hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Sat- urday, and from noon to 4:30 p.m., Sundays. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for ages 3 to 17, and free for kids under three. The museum is located on Route 52, about five miles north of Wilmington.
