Saturday Feb. 8 was a big night for parties and dinners. Kevin Yecco gave his wife Jeannine a 50th surprise dinner party at the home of good friend and fellow teacher Susan Haury in Wildwood Crest. Everyone got to the event before the star of the evening arrived, and I’m not sure if she knew or not, but Jeannine seemed to be surprised and it was great party.

 The show’s finale. The show’s finale.  Wildwood Crest Memorial School presented Disney’s “My Son Pinocchio Jr.” in December and it was a smashing success. The play was directed by Marilyn Glenn and Alyssa Gannon, as always.

“My Son Pinocchio” is the classic tale of toymaker Geppetto’s little wooden puppet who is given life in the toy workshop. The students presented the junior version of the play. Pinocchio is played by Alexa Lord, and Geppetto is played by Alan Rendzak. Both give wonderful performances. The story tackles what it means to be the “perfect child,” and what it means to be a “real father.”

Scott Phillips III as husband and wife.   It was cold, windy and very wet outside, but those inside the First Baptist Church of Wildwood would never have known as Nicole DeCicco wed D.

Nicole grew up in Lower Township and her mother, Angel Daniels of Wildwood Crest, has been planning the nuptials for months, doing everything long distance because Nicole and Scott are stationed in San Antonio, Texas. Nicole is an Army specialist 4th class, and is on active duty, while Scott is in the reserves and he is also a specialist 4th class. They are X-ray technicians and work at Fort Sam Houston.
