We hope to continue to support local Scout troops, Camp Sunnybrook, Meals on Wheels, the Consortium Schools and Gull House to name a few. More than $500 was used to fill food baskets, and with the added demand and the cost of food going higher, this amount will probably need to be doubled.

For more information call Joe Smith at 302-436-8142. Buy in: $100. Rebuys: 2 at $25.
