Block Party Offers Fall Fun
This is the last reminder to come out and have fun at CAMP Rehoboth Block Party 2019! The second block of Baltimore Avenue will be closed to traffic and open to footsteps crunching on fall leaves. The family-friendly event offers a healthy dose of fresh air, local restaurants, vendors, music, and fun for the kids. Don’t forget to bring the dog along for a stroll down the street! Block Party 2019 takes place from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday, October 20.▼
Talking ‘bout Bad Girls (and Boys)
CAMP Rehoboth Chorus Ensemble’s first independent concert—“Bad Boys/Bad Girls”—was a sell-out! Singing to a packed house both nights, the ensemble presented a varied concert of solo and small group numbers,
along with songs involving the entire ensemble. Engaging and entertaining, the ensemble was rewarded with standing ovations at both performances. Missed the ensemble’s debut concert? You can catch them at the CAMP Rehoboth Block Party on October 20, and at the World AIDS Service of Remembrance and Hope on December 1. The full CAMP Rehoboth Chorus is now in rehearsal for its 2020 season—and the ensemble is already planning for another concert all its own. ▼
