New Bill Will Update LGBTQ Protections
A bill is moving through the Delaware General Assembly that will update protections for the LGBTQ community by adding more inclusive language to a 2009 law. The new legislation would change the current law which says sexual orientation “exclusively means heterosexuality, homosexuality or bisexuality.” The phrase “exclusively means” would be replaced with the word “includes.” Gender identity language will also be updated. ▼
CROP Volunteers Help Horses
As part of last month’s Women’s FEST, a team of 12 CROP (CAMP Rehoboth Outreach Program) volunteers headed to Southern Delaware Therapeutic Riding (SDTR) in Milton. The team learned about SDTR and the good work it does, then got busy. From painting to power washing, weed-whacking, pasture picking, and more, the CROP members quickly knocked off a list of chores. SDTR was thrilled, and as a result they will be ready to start serving children and adults again this month, for the first time since the pandemic hit. Many thanks to our CROP volunteers. ▼
GSA Students and CAMP Rehoboth Volunteer at Food Bank
On April 24, CAMP Rehoboth Youth Coordinator, Barbara Antlitz, along with GSA (Gender & Sexuality Alliance) students from Sussex Academy, volunteered at the Food Bank of Delaware in Milford. A shout-out to their GSA advisor, Mrs. Deanna Lough. Our intention is for our student-led projects to build community partnerships as well as bring awareness to others. The presence of a GSA in middle and/or high schools to provides a positive and lasting effect on student health, well-being, and academic performance. ▼
We have an unsung hero among us in our community and we would like to take this opportunity to recognize her.
Jennifer Rubenstein has been part of the Rehoboth Beach/Lewes community for over 20 years. She is always the first to welcome new arrivals to the area by offering assistance and recommendations from doctors to restaurants.
During a period when most of us drew inward to keep safe, Jennifer worked daily to help people in Delaware find vaccinations and testing events. Even though she has a full-time job and is already involved in many volunteer and charitable activities, she worked with many people she had never even met to make COVID vaccination appointments.
Jennifer went above and beyond the call of duty to facilitate an end to the pandemic in such a time-consuming and selfless way. She was the best advertisement in our area for how to get vaccinated. We believe that hundreds of Sussex and Kent County citizens got vaccinated through her tireless efforts.
Thank you, Jennifer, for your kindness and tenacity in helping to heal our community! We are so grateful for your dedication to this community which we all love. As friends and neighbors of Jennifer Rubenstein, we would like Letters from CAMP Rehoboth to recognize her for the unselfish citizenship that she has practiced over the past months.
