January 05, 1996|By Peg Adamarczyk | Peg Adamarczyk,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE ARCTIC blasts rattling through our community have failed to keep our neighbors inside. The calendar is gradually filling up with meetings, announcements and programs of interest.

Sportfishers to meet

The Pasadena Sportfishing Group will meet at 7:30 p.m. Monday at Orchard Beach fire hall, 7549 Solley Road.

Ed Sealing, general manager of Pleasure Cove Marina, will be the guest speaker. He will discuss his plans for four boat ramps, parking and boat storage facilities at the marina off Poplar Ridge Road.

"Mr. Sealing will bring the aerial views and plans of his proposal for area fishermen to see and ask for input from us," said George Bentz, PSG spokesman.

Food and refreshments, served by Orchard Beach Fire Company volunteers, will be available.

An auction, a 50/50 raffle and door prizes also will be part of the proceedings.

Membership in the PSG is free and open to the fishing public.

"We're glad to offer free membership cards to those attending that can be used for discounts at area tackle shops this year," Mr. Bentz said.

Interested anglers also can sign up at the meeting for the group's Feb. 7 bus trip to one of the area's largest outdoor sportsman shows, in Harrisburg, Pa.

Tickets are $21 and include the cost of transportation, admission to the show and refreshments. Seating is limited.

For more details about the PSG, call Mr. Bentz at 255-3678.

Chelsea Beach meeting

The Chelsea Beach Residents Association will meet at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Wooden Nickel Restaurant.

New officers for 1996 recently were elected. Barney Biancavilla returns as president, with Gary DeGrafft as vice president. Gedrry Duket and Cynthia Wiley will share the secretary's duties and Maxine Gavin is the treasurer.

The association recently awarded first place in its 1995 holiday decorating contest to Rick and Cindy Hogan's home in the 600 block of Pine Road. Michael Alan Proctorch's home, in the 700 block of G St., came in second, and the McAlpine house, in the 100 block of 12th St., was third.

Association members extend a big thanks to Del. Victoria Schade, who judged the contest.
