Please, No Smoking in the Courtyard
Though it may have gone unnoticed in the mid-winter season, a change has taken place in the CAMP Rehoboth Courtyard. Once the weather warms up, and Lori’s Café reopens for the season, visitors will discover that there is now no smoking allowed in the CAMP Rehoboth Courtyard. The CAMP Rehoboth Smoke Free Courtyard was inspired by a grant from the Delaware Division of Public Health and the Delaware Health Fund.

Around the World with Letters from CAMP Rehoboth
Letters from CAMP Rehoboth loves to travel—and who better to set sail with than a travel advisor! David Wade of Accent on Travel carried it along on an Azamara Cruise to the Mediterranean that included Rome, Barcelona, Portofino, Monte Carlo, Marseille and more! Muriel Hogan took a copy of Letters all the way to Topanga, California to share it with her grandson Zion.
Let’s go to the prom! (with a great date!) CAMP Rehoboth to Host Prom on May 11
Many of us did not go to our high school proms; others went with members of the opposite sex while thinking about their real crushes. Now, CAMP Rehoboth has a plan to make this right! On May 11, at the Atlantic Sands Ballroom, CAMP Rehoboth is hosting a real live Prom. Come with your partner, your spouse, your friends etc. There will be dancing to the oldies (and newies), cocktails, and a professional photographer to take the kinds of prom pictures we never had! We’ll even have a King and Queen—or maybe that should be, Queen and Queen?
Save the date, May 11, and watch for spectacular news about this brand new event. Hint: got your old prom pictures? They may come in handy for prizes! Scan and email them (with the names) to Nancy Hewish. Find that old tuxedo or drag out a prom dress, and join us for the first CAMP Rehoboth Prom.
Hoffer Memorial Gifts Support Arts
CAMP Rehoboth is pleased to announce that the Robert “Bob” Hoffer Memorial funds have been designated by his husband Max Dick to support LGBT inspired art and performance at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center. Bob was a very active member of CAMP Rehoboth and was serving on the organization’s Board of Directors at the time of his death in June of 2017.
The memorial gifts given by Bob’s family and friends have enabled CAMP Rehoboth to purchase professional theatrical lighting and blackout draperies that will enhance the performance space and improve the theatrical productions Bob loved.
Bob’s husband, Max, was instrumental in encouraging the designation of funds: "I'm very pleased that a portion of the generous donations made to CAMP Rehoboth in memory of my husband Bob Hoffer will be used in such a needed capacity. I can't think of a better tribute to him that spotlights both his love for the ongoing work of CAMP Rehoboth and also his passion for theatre."
The first theatrical production to utilize the new lighting system will be Last Summer at Bluefish Cove, February 23-25 at the CAMP Rehoboth Communtiy Center. Tickets for the production directed by Russell Stiles, are available now at camprehoboth.com, or by calling the CAMP Rehoboth office.
