The library doubled the number of card sign-ups from last year with a total of almost 60 new cards issued to adults and children. A random drawing from the names of new card owners was done to promote the sign-up month. James Melvin was the children’s winner. His prize was a new book. Ethel Williams was the adult winner. A gift certificate to a local bookstore was provided by the Friends group as her prize. During the past three weeks, the children’s librarian, has been conducting orientation for the children from Delmar Elementary School. The children, pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, are taken on a tour of the library building. The children learn a wide range of information about the library and at the end of the tour, the librarian reads a story. Delmar Elementary School has begun a reading incentive program. At the end of each month an outstanding reader will be picked from each grade level. These winners will be treated to a free lunch and a ride to the library. The library will give a book to each winner.

The Delmar Fire Department has members who carry long-time experience, commitment and respect, plus families that continue to carry on the tradition within the fire service to help protect and serve the general public and community. Such is the case of Pete LeCates, life member, 85 years old and still serving. LeCates has served as chief engineer, engineer, driver and firefighter since July 1950. He has also served on many committees and still attends state conventions. Williams F. (B.J.) Hughes, LeCates’ grandson, began his service in 1991. Another grandson, Jeffrey Hughes, joined in 1995, and yet a third grandson, John Chandler, joined in 2000.

The Delmar varsity football team is undefeated and hoping for another state championship. Way to go team - keep up the good work.

Elaine Carr returned from a week’s vacation in North Carolina on Thursday. She celebrated her Scottish Highland heritage by attending dinners, musical festivals, the Flora MacDonald Highland Games, a Kirkin o’ the Tartans church service and visiting with friends and kin in Red Springs N.C. Sunday, two cousins and Elaine moved on to Fayetteville, N.C., and visited the new Airborne Museum, which is an incredible tribute to our military efforts over the years. They spent several days at courthouses, libraries, graveyards and churches doing family genealogical research. Southern hospitality was at its best and their time was up all too soon. On the way home, Elaine stopped at the visitors area on the Chesapeake Bay Tunnel Bridge and watched a Navy tug towing an old aircraft carrier out to sea - another reminder of years gone by. She said it’s nice to get away, but even nicer to be home safe and sound.
