Saturday's event at Seaford High School will benefit Relay for Life

By Lynn R. Parks

After a St. Patrick's Day festival to benefit the Western Sussex Relay for Life was cut short due to inclement weather, organizer Harry Brake promised that there would be a makeup event. The Seaford High Relay for Life Flea Market will be Saturday, starting at 7 a.m. "This time, we are prepared in case we get bad weather," Brake said. The flea market, which will be set up in the front yard of Seaford High School, will be moved inside to the cafeteria if it rains. Also planned in the day's events is a Harley-Davidson motorcycle show in front of the high school, starting at 8 a.m. There will be children's games and face painting, as well as food for sale. Several organizations, including the Western Sussex Relay for Life, will have information available.

Six area bands will perform from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the school's auditorium. Admission to the auditorium will be $2; members of the audience will be able to come and go as they please. A 5K run that was planned for the original day of the festival will be Saturday, June 2. The course will start at the Ross Mansion and will wind around the Seaford Industrial Park and back to the mansion. People will be able to sign up for the run at Saturday's flea market. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Western Sussex Relay for Life, which in turn benefits the American Cancer Society. The relay will be held May 18 and 19 at the Mears Campus of Nanticoke Memorial Hospital (see related story, page 3). Reservations for craft and flea market tables are still being accepted.
