Welcome Kerry Hallett
Kerry has joined CAMP Rehoboth as the new Operations Administrator. A graduate student in non-profit leadership at La Salle University, Kerry is also an accomplished songwriter and musician, having performed in Rehoboth at Chesapeake and Maine, Dogfish Head, and the Summer House, among other venues.
One of Kerry’s first projects was establishing the successful Handmade Market, which premiered in the community center courtyard on September 11 (see Handmade Market article for a full report).
There will be a monthly CAMP Rehoboth Handmade Market in the Courtyard at the Community Center on the second Friday of the month, from 5-8 p.m., featuring local artists displaying and selling their art, crafts and even books.
“We love the idea of having it in the courtyard in the fall, to give people walking to area restaurants something else to stop by and see at CAMP Rehoboth,” says Kerry. “We’re hoping to keep it going all year long if we are able to set up inside in the winter.”
In addition to the market project, Kerry is working with CAMP Rehoboth social media, along with a host of administrative and leadership projects.
Kerry and her wife, Millie, a ceramicist, live in Rehoboth. Welcome to the team, Kerry.
CAMP Rehoboth Offers LGBTQ Cultural Competency Training
CAMP Rehoboth Health & Wellness Program partnered with SUN Behavioral Health and the National Alliance on Mental Illness - DE (NAMI) to offer a virtual LGBTQ Cultural Competency course. It drew a large and interested audience.
Over 70 community social services and medical professionals attended. The training aimed to increase awareness of LGBTQ terminology and understanding of sexual orientation, gender identity expression, and available resources for the queer community.
Feedback after the training included comments like: “This training helped me better understand the wide array of sexual orientations and genders.” “Because of this training, I am more aware of the practices of ‘misgendering’ and ‘deadnaming’ and how both can be harmful to transgender individuals.” And, “Because of this training, I have a better understanding of LGBTQA+ discrimination and the everyday actions I can take to be more inclusive.”
