OYSTERBACK, MARYLAND — Oysterback, Maryland. -- Social Notes in the Oysterback Bugeye, by Mrs. Louisa ''Sister'' Gibbs:

The lemonade flowed and a good time was had by all when View 'N' Chew owners Delmar P. and Earlene Tuttle celebrated the The Alley Gators' Tuesday Nite Bowling League Tourney victory with a Fish Fry for team members, family, friends and church members in the parking lot of the store.

Earlene barbecued up plenty of hardheads in her secret sauce for all and sundry, while music was provided by Delmar P., whose rendition of the ''Jesus Loves Me Polka'' was a toe-tapping success. Some may remember that Delmar P. placed second after Nils Lofgren in the 1971 Maryland State Accordion Championships. . . .

Purvis and Susie Lou Toadvine and family are visiting Captain and Mrs. Lennie Skinner at their rental cottage in Ocean City this week. . . .

Winkie Bugg and Whack Wallace are visiting Whack's niece Tahnee Rae and her family near Atlantic City this week. Winkie and Whack hope to get some blackjack in at the casinos, as they are anxious to test their new system, which Whack received in a dream from Paul Sarbanes while sleeping on the couch at Winkie's during the big ice storm last winter when the power was down at her house. Good luck, girls! . . .

Methodist women reports that the Cantaloupe Festival took in more than $500 toward the purchase of a new air conditioning system for the church. The old one was ruined, readers will recall, when a family of skunks took up their abode there last spring and church sexton Purnell Pruitt ran into the unit with the Lawn Boy when mowing and not paying attention. Iva says Purnell is almost ready to stop living in the boat house and come indoors again. She reports you can hardly smell him anymore at all. . . .

Betty Price, over to Santimoke Community Cable TV announces that the system will be adding The O. J. Simpson Channel to their lineup this week. ''All O.J., All the Time'' should satisfy the cravings of many morbid curiosity seekers now that they've put a traffic light in on ''Dead Man's Intersection'' at County Road 393 and Route 50 . . .

Chickie Farmer is wondering why Litey Clash has to import professionals from Baltimore to enter his wet T-shirt contests at Liteyworld, his new Ocean City bar, when so many talented locals are unemployed. . . .

Mrs. Asahael Gloom Phipps and Mrs. Button Hicks of the Josiah Whaley Chapter of the Daughters of Famous Tories were hostesses of the monthly chapter meeting, held at Mount Boredom, the historical old mansion. Guest lecturer was E. Power Tutweiler, who spoke to the Daughters on the importance of historical ancestors, especially now that the Godless Liberal Media are having them too. Historically accurate refreshments included Martha Jefferson's bridge mix and Queen Victoria's Pigs-in-a-Blanket. . . .

The Wallopsville Volunteer Hook and Ladder Company won the Best Float contest at the Old West Hundred Days parade over to Patamoke last week. Chief Gloria Hinton reports their float theme was ''Famous Wallopsville Poultry Products.'' . . .

Venus Tutweiler hostessed the monthly meeting of Great Books at her home in the Shallow Shores Doublewide Park. Guests included Venus' sister Lavonda Hardcastle, June Grubb, Rochelle Fosbreath and Fern Legume. The works of Italo Calvino were discussed, and Heloise Helk, who was on vacation with her husband Waldo in West Virginia, was nominated Refreshment Committee Chairwoman for the coming year. . . .

Popular local song stylist Raeline Boudine is visiting her cousin Francine Boudine in Port Deposit this week. Raeline will be singing new songs of her own composition at the Peach Bottom Moonlite Bay Supper Club, accompanied by Francine on cocktail organ and sister Martine on drums. Raeline plans to wear a chartreuse satin gown of her own design with sequins, seed pearls and shoes dyed to match. Her brother, Racine Boudine of Essex, will be recording her songs for Talent Night at the Patamoke Theater in the Oblong where she was a semi-finalist last year and won many fine prizes including a free car wash at Ray Bob's Gas'n'Go and a complimentary manicure at Doreen's Curl Up N' Dye Salon de Beaute over to Oysterback featuring Revlon's Rusty Rose Nail Enamel. . . .

Billy and Lisa Chinaberry and baby Clint are visiting Captain and Mrs. Lennie Skinner at their rental cottage in Ocean City next week . . .
