At our next [Transaliance] meeting on Sunday, August 27, we will be receiving dance instruction from a professional dance instructor. Nothing fancy just a few steps to get you off of that wall and on the dance floor. Everyone is invited LBGTQ+ and those friendly to us. It is open to all ages and gender identities. If you are under 18 you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The meeting takes place the fourth Sunday of every month at the Rehoboth MCC church 19369 Plantations Road in Rehoboth.
Come on wall flowers get out and get your dance on! Don't worry if you’re not comfortable on the dance floor. That's what it is all about. Get out of your comfort zone, let your hair down and boogie. We are also seeking those who do know how to dance to help others be more comfortable. Come on out and support your community. Let’s dance!
Information and contact can be found at the Rehoboth Transliance meet up site.

On Saturday September 9, the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society (RBHS) will bring an 18th Century style Colonial Williamsburg tradition to Rehoboth Beach when it sponsors a “Grand Illumination” of historic homes and buildings throughout the city “to illustrate the evolving architectural heritage of our beach community.”
A Grand Illumination is an outdoor ceremony involving the simultaneous activation of lights throughout a community, such as the lighting of Christmas lights. The modern concept is based loosely on the colonial and English tradition of placing lighted candles in the windows of homes and public buildings to celebrate a special event.
The Rehoboth Beach “Illumination Night 2017” event will focus on lighting-up the many historic structures in the city from 7-9 p.m. We are inviting residents, businesses, and everyone who owns Rehoboth Beach homes or commercial buildings built before 1950 and not substantially altered, to join us September 9 by illuminating their business or home with anything ranging from simple paper bag luminaries, to fancy lanterns and parasols.
Participants can decorate their property in any way they wish. The Rehoboth Beach Historical Society can also provide participants with simple luminary bags and tea lights for display in exchange for a donation to the Historical Society.
Anyone interested in planning and/or participating in the Grand Illumination event should call 302-227-7310, or email the Historical Society.
