Cooler Days Are Coming Soon
As you are putting away things from the summer, consider donating any extra blankets, comforters and the like to Dale Dunning of Just Soup Ministry. Dale distributes blankets to homeless people throughout the area. The cold weather will be here before we know it, so any help would be appreciated.
New and gently used blankets, etc can be dropped off at CAMP Rehoboth, 37 Baltimore Avenue. A volunteer will deliver the blankets to Dale as they accumulate. Call Kathy with questions 302-227-5620.

The Wurst Will Be the Best!
Downtown Rehoboth Beach will be the place to be on the first weekend in October as our downtown restaurants celebrate the First Annual Rehoboth Beach Oktoberfest!
Almost a dozen restaurants have already signed on to participate with special menus and a salute to well-brewed beer, sausages and much more.
Rehoboth restaurants are getting into the act this year on Friday, Oct. 3 and Saturday, Oct. 4 to start a brand new tradition downtown.
On board for turning downtown into an Alpine village are Abstractions, Aqua Grill, Arenas, Cloud 9, Dos Locos, Dogfish Head, DISH!, Frogg Pond, Go Fish, and Irish Eyes. They're cooking up recipes for Sauerbraten, Bratwurst, Weinerschnitzel and incredibly creative takes on traditional German food. For more information, check out www.downtownrehoboth.com.
What's the New Addition at CAMP
In case you're wondering what the new addition is adjoining the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center, it's the CAMP Kiosk. It will give CAMP Rehoboth and other non-profit agencies in the area a safe and secure place to sell tickets, and provide information for events happening throughout the year.
