Save the date- Second Annual Rainbow Raft-Up Will Be August 25
On a sunny weekend last August, dozens of boats, including a large charter pontoon boat, hundreds of people, and a flock of inflatable unicorns, flamingoes, and rainbow rafts gathered for a Rehoboth Bay Pride Rainbow Raft-Up.
On Sunday, August 25, 10 a.m.—6 p.m. the second annual raft-up is set to take place. All are welcome to gather at the horseshoe sand bar in Rehoboth Bay, in rental boats, individually owned vessels, or aboard the Sand Dollar big party pontoon boat. There will be rainbow flags as far as the eye can see. You won’t be able to miss the gang at N38°37.199’, W75°05.166’ in the bay.
There will be a limited number of tickets available on the Sand Dollar pontoon party boat, leaving from the Rusty Rudder at noon and returning around 3 p.m. Included in the fee will be beverages.
Check out the Rehoboth Bay Pride Facebook page or watch for details here in Letters for when tickets will be available. ▼
Why the Loss of Our Pets Hits so Hard
There will be a Lunch Bunch Talk called Understanding our Pets, Grieving When They Are Gone, hosted by Delaware Hospice in Milford on July 12, from noon to 1:30 p.m.
Presented by Dr. Judy Pierson, Clinical Psychologist, the talk will tackle questions like, “Have you ever wondered why your cat attacks your feet or bumps her head against you? Do you know why your dog eats grass or has a low slowly wagging tail? Do you know how to decode your pet’s behavior?” If you’ve ever lost a pet, you know how painful that loss can be. Did you get the support you needed or did people fail to understand the significance of this death?
Seating is limited; please register early by calling 302-856-7717. The fee for lunch, served at
noon, is $5. Delaware Hospice is located at 100 Patriot’s Way in Milford. ▼
