CAMP Chorus In Rehearsal for 2017 Concert Series
The CAMP Rehoboth Chorus is at full capacity! Eighty-nine members have finished their fifth of eighteen weekly rehearsals for their 2017 annual concert, Come Fly With Me! They will be performing internationally-inspired songs, as well as celebrating a few US cities, and throwing in some “camp” for good measure.
Weeks of work have already been invested in this endeavor, thanks to the music committee’s three months of research on theme and sheet music availability for their selections. Music director Doug Yetter then arranged 16 of the 25 songs and recorded the practice CDs for each chorister and vocal part. Add the twenty-seven hours to reproduce all the CDS, and you have an inkling of how much time and energy is involved with this program!
This season, choristers will be concentrating more on vocalization/sound at rehearsals, while reviewing notes at home. David Zipse, the accompanist since the chorus’ inception has returned to play each week as well as to coordinate the band.
The 2017 winter concerts will again be held at Epworth Church in Rehoboth Beach on Jan. 27 and 28 at 7 p.m. and Jan. 29 at 3 p.m. Spring concert information for Georgetown will be announced at a later date. Tickets will be available through CAMP Rehoboth later this year. Please mark your calendars to Come Fly With Me!

SoDel Cares and Gives Back to the Community
SoDel Cares held its second annual fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 1 at Fish On in the Villages of Five Points in Lewes to honor the company’s founder, the late Matt Haley, who was nationally recognized for his philanthropy.
“Matt created a company culture that is dedicated to giving back to the community,” said Mike Dickinson, vice president of SoDel Concepts, which also owns Plate Catering, the food truck Big Thunder Roadside Kitchen, and hospitality management and consulting divisions. “He firmly believed that you should help those in need every day and in any way possible.”
"We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support we received this year from our community,” said Lindsey Barry, SoDel Concepts Controller.
SoDel Cares is managed by the Delaware Community Fund, an organization dedicated to facilitating philanthropy throughout Delaware. The Matthew James Haley Trust announced they will match funds raised at the event, and SoDel Concepts also pledged to donate a matching amount, tripling the total earnings for the evening.
