CAMP Parents and Children Dinner
December 4, 2005 is the date set for Rehoboth Beach Main Street's Community Unity Dinner at the Convention Center from 4 to 7 p.m. The event is a great time and highlights the best of our community. The all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner is provided by Nicola's with CAMP Rehoboth making the dessert available. The ticket price for adults is $7 with children age 6 to 11 eating for $3 while those 5 years of age and younger get in for $1. Santa makes a stop; seasonal music is provided and you get to visit with lots of your friends and neighbors. (Financial assistance is available by calling CAMP Rehoboth.)
This year, we will hold a table at 5:00 p.m. for CAMP Parents and Children so that those with young children can meet others in the community. If you can make it, please give us a call at CAMP Rehoboth so that we can save you space and have a holiday favor for the children attending. You can call the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center at 302 227-5620, or e-mail Beth Fitton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Safe Haven Acquires Site
After two years of intensive planning and fund raising, the dream of a state of the art animal sanctuary in Sussex County is beginning to unfold. The Board of Directors for the sanctuary recently closed on the purchase of nearly 14 acres.
The Sanctuary, Sussex county's first no kill facility will rescue, house and find loving homes for dogs and cats that would otherwise be euthanized by county shelters. Animals that are not adopted will live out their lives at Safe Haven.
The purchase of the property was made possible though a loan from County Bank. The Sanctuary's Advisory committee looked at nearly 30 sites in the quest for the perfect locale. Situated between Georgetown and Lewes, off Rt. 9 the property is secluded yet accessible to the community and large enough for future expansion.
Curl Up With A Good Book
Break out that 2006 calendar and circle Saturday, January 14. That way you'll remember to come to the "Curl Up With A Good Book" sale at the Rehoboth Beach Library (Don't worry, it's indoors!)
CAMP Rehoboth is once again holding a book sale to benefit the Rehoboth Beach Library. We will be selling used books, videos, tapes and CDs at low, low priceshow does 50 to $1.00 sound?
Plan to stop by the library between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the 14th, say hi to your friendly neighborhood CAMP volunteers, and pick up a few good books to read over the winter. The library is located at 226 Rehoboth Ave, diagonally across from the firehouse.

Do Some Early Holiday Shopping
Have you decided what holiday gift to get that special someone in your life? If more jewelry or something else for the house just doesn't "do it" for you, what about something you can both enjoy? What if that something could also snatch you right out of those winter blues. A cruise may be exactly the right gift. Here is our suggestion.
CAMP Rehoboth has partnered with RSVP Vacations and Coastal Cruise Club to provide a cruise from Fort Lauderdale to the Yucatan with a stop in Key West, just in time for Mardi Gras. The ship, Holland America's ms Westerdam, will depart from Fort Lauderdale on February 26 and return on March 4, 2006. Staterooms start at $1,145 per person.
Check out this leader in gay and lesbian travel at rsvpvacations.com. You can get a good idea of the ship, Holland America's ms Westerdam, by going to their website, hollandamerica.com. You won't be disappointed in this five-star ship. Holland America Line offers the most extensive menus at sea plus lounges, pool, casino and spacious staterooms. By the way, this cruise will offer ASL interpreted events.
The great news for CAMP Rehoboth is that the Founders' Circle will receive a total of at least $250 from RSVP and Coastal Cruise Club for each stateroom booked exclusively through Coastal Cruise Club. If we exceed 20 staterooms booked, we will receive a $1,000 bonus from RSVP.
Think about what a great gift this will be for your partner plus you get to enjoy it too! Give Chet Elder at Coastal Cruise Club a call at 302 537-2986. He is looking forward to working with you to be sure your experience is simply fabulous!
