Bi-Staters Coffee Talk Sharon Cordrey

Eighteen boys with their three commanders and administrator council from the Outpost #178 of the Delmarva Evangelistic Church attended their annual district Royal Rangers Pow Wow in Whiteford, Md., recently. More than 1,200 boys ranging in age from 9 to 17 attended this event. Can you imagine 1,200 tents set up for these boys? That’s a lot of tents. While they were there, games were played and church services were held around campfires.

St. Stephen’s Church put together a bus trip to New York City to see the Broadway Show, “The Lion King.” Everyone who attended had a great time. I was told that the costumes were fabulous.
Our sympathy to the families and friends of Mildred A. Wootten, Sharon Leigh Briddell Kellam and James O. Morgan.

Happy birthday to Bobbi Koster, who turned 13 on Tuesday, Aug. 24. With love from your family. Congratulations Bobbi, you are finally a teenager.

Happy birthday to Tom Young, who turned 80 Tuesday, Aug. 24. His wife Diana gave him a surprise birthday party at the Methodist Manor House in Seaford. His children, grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, other members of his family and some of his friends helped him celebrate this special birthday. Make sure you read Tom’s column (on page 40) this week, as he discusses more about his birthday party. Tom — I sure couldn’t believe you are 80. You sure don’t look it.

Thought for the week: “Success in business requires training and discipline and hard work. But if you’re not frightened by these things, the opportunities are just as great today as they ever were.” David Rockefeller
