The Auxiliary of Nanticoke Health Services is holding “Snowball 2003.” The Auxiliary's annual dinner dance will be held Saturday, Jan. 25, at the Seaford Golf and Country Club.
Appetizing food and dancing to the sounds of Encore are sure to warm attendees of the winter gala. The only chill of the night will come from a spectacular ice sculpture created by Jon Lizer of Custom Catering in Seaford.
Proceeds from the dinner dance will become part of the annual donation made by the Auxiliary to Nanticoke Health Services. Last year, the Auxiliary provided financial support for the Charity Endowment Prescription Fund, new beds for the Maternity Unit, and the construction of the Cancer Care Center.

Hunters, anglers, wildlife watchers or anyone who values and enjoys Delaware’s wildlife can now get up-to-date news from the Division of Fish and Wildlife delivered right to their computer.
The “Observer” is a free service designed to help keep the public informed about the activities of the Division’s Wildlife, Fisheries, Enforcement and Mosquito Control sections and other issues affecting wildlife. The Division began publishing the eight-page tabloid in 2000 and distributing it through a network of licensing agents. It is no longer being printed because of current budget restraints.
“Going on-line is a giant step forward in the Division’s effort to communicate with and work closely with the public in protecting Delaware’s fish and wildlife resources and serving the public’s interests,” said Acting Division Director Lloyd Alexander.
