The Ocean View Historical Society hosted its second “Trip Down Memory Lane,” with Norm Justice of Cedar Neck on Wednesday, June 3, at Millville Town Hall. Justice, who at 87, has seen a lot of changes since he was born in 1922, is quick of mind and has a lot to offer, history-wise. And he is one of the few people with such knowledge that the historical society has tracked down to get a record of times past before that history is lost.

As business owners on both the Delaware and Maryland shores can attest, Memorial Day weekend kicks off one of their most anticipated weekends of the year, as vacationers ready their trips to some of the best-loved beaches in the Mid-Atlantic.
