CROP Cleans Up!
On Saturday, September 17, 14 CROP volunteers joined nine other groups to participate in DNREC’s 35th annual Coastal Cleanup of downtown Rehoboth’s beach. And CROP had the largest team! Everyone scoured the beach from one end of the boardwalk to the other, picking up trash—even just small bits of debris. Their diligence was admirable—and most appreciated. Everyone’s work resulted in many bags—holding 41 pounds—of trash collected.
Thanks to CROP Team Leaders Debbie Woods and Leslie Sinclair for volunteering as DNREC Site Co-Captains for a second year. ▼

5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche
From September 29 - October 1, CAMP Rehoboth Theatre Company hosted three sold-out performances of 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche. Directed by Russell Stiles, the absurdist comedy had audiences roaring with laughter. The play invited engagement with audience members, each of whom wore pre-designated name tags that allowed participation in various of the show’s bits. Perhaps the biggest bit of all saw Scott Beadle, known locally as Regina Cox, taking to the front row as a planted audience member, riffing dialogue with the rambunctious cast. ▼
Pictured: Cast members Gwen Osborne, Karen Laitman, Kelly Sheridan, Darcy Vollero, and Shelley Kingsbury take a bow after one of the performances.
