6 Futcher Pool Party Returns for July 4th
The coolest place to get out of the heat this July 4th weekend will once again be the 6 Futcher Pool Party on Saturday, July 4 from noon to 6 p.m. This year’s military themed MASH Bash party means it’s time to dig out the camouflage swim suits, and dive into some summer fun. The Pool Party raises funds for CAMP Rehoboth. The $15 suggested donation can be made on the CAMP Rehoboth website beginning June 1.

Why Did Bad Hair Day Cross the Road?
To get to the other side, of course!
Though he doesn’t cut hair with these giant scissors (at least we hope he doesn’t!), Drexel Davison was happy to use them for the grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony on his brand new hair salon, located just across the street from his old hair salon on Lake Avenue.

Once In A Blue Moon
Weddings are rare “once in a blue moon" experiences, and the owners of Rehoboth’s famous Blue Moon, Randy Haney and Tim Ragan made sure their Nassau Valley Vineyards celebration would not soon be forgotten. Retired Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson performed the ceremony, and Miss Richfield 1981, of course, provided the toast (see CAMPshots for more).
CAMP Rehoboth is home to many weddings and receptions—gay and straight—and Jessica Messner and Morgan Garms celebrated there on May 15.
Newlyweds Marc Charon and Jon Dauphine are also new RB home owners. Congratulations!
