CROP’s Time of Harvest
by Debbie Woods
On September 22, CROP volunteers joined other volunteers in Grove Park and along the route to support AIDS Walk Delaware. Over $4,000 was raised for the fight against AIDS by CAMP Rehoboth’s Rainbow Unicorn Team. Thank you, teams!!
Here’s what’s coming up for the harvest season:
Saturday, October 20—Delaware Botanic Gardens, Dagsboro, 8:30 a.m. to noon
It is a great time to be outdoors. CROP returns to the Delaware Botanic Gardens in Dagsboro. Help DBG keep the momentum going as they grow and become a world-class, inspirational, educational, and sustainable public botanic garden in southern Delaware. As an option, volunteers can bring a brown-bag lunch and have a tour of the gardens and woodland afterwards.
Saturday, November 10—Rehoboth Beach Film Festival, Cape Henlopen High School, Lewes
A highlight of the Fall season is the Rehoboth Beach Film Festival and CROP is there to help. Volunteers will assist with ticket taking and more. There will be several shifts throughout the day.
Tuesday, November 13 from 1 to 4 p.m.
CROP has a team traveling to the Food Bank of Delaware in Milford to help make sure families in need enjoy the bounty of the season. Volunteers will sort and pack a multitude of food items for distribution throughout the state just in time for Thanksgiving. This project is FULL, but there is a wait list.
Many friendships and memories were made this year. Volunteers can harvest the rewards by joining CROP at one of these Fall projects. Email today to help! ▼

See Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice on November 3
The Delaware Shakespeare Community Tour will present a FREE performance of Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice on November 3 at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center.
This professional acting company will present Shakespeare’s masterwork, a play focusing on discrimination and marginalized communities, which is as relevant today as when it was written in the 1590s.
While The Merchant of Venice is a story that focuses on the specific injustice of anti-Semitism, the company seeks to broaden the conversation, looking at root causes and similarities for other marginalized groups.
Save the date—November 3, at 7 p.m. for this remarkable opportunity to see live, professional theatre at CAMP Rehoboth Community Center.▼
