Plans are underway for Snowball 2003
Though autumn is in the air the Auxiliary of Nanticoke Health Services is already thinking snow - “Snowball 2003”, that is. Plans are taking shape for the Auxiliary's annual dinner dance to be held January 25, 2003, 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. For more information about an evening not to be missed call Nanticoke Health Services Volunteer Office at (302) 629-6611, extension 2301.

The Dixie Melody Boys spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ through their musical talent. Their goal of delivering a first class performance filled with excitement, energy, and lots of great traditional Southern Gospel Music, are traits which have proven an essential role in the success they have enjoyed. These characteristics, united with their desire to never compromise their responsibility to spread the Gospel through Southern Gospel Music in a Christ-like, professional manner have allowed the Dixie Melody Boys to firmly establish a place in the forefront of Southern Gospel Music. The group is featured by Ed O’Neal, who has led the group for the past four decades. Under his leadership, the group has become one of Southern Gospel Music’s most loved and respected quarters. Ed was the recipient of the Marvin Nocross Award in September 2000, the highest honor presented at the “The Singing News” Fan Awards Ceremony each year. This night of special worship and praise to our Lord and Saviour is being sponsored by Cokesbury Church. There is no admission, but a love offering will be taken.
