On March 19, 1891 it was first called Cape Henlopen City.  In 1893, the name was formally changed to Rehoboth.  Since then, Rehoboth Beach has been welcoming thousands of visitors not just in the summer, but year round.  It is a destination for many, and for a lot of us, it is also home.  Living at the beach is great, and, believe me, I do not take it for granted.

CAMP Rehoboth, Exhibit, Rehoboth Beach Museum, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, CAMP = Create a More Positive Rehoboth, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

CAMP_Rehoboth_Exhibit_at_RBHS

A new exhbit at The Rehoboth Beach Museum features items that illustrate the history of the organization known as CAMP Rehoboth.  With this exhibit Rehoboth Beach Museum honors the history of CAMP Rehoboth.

The organization, whose name is an acronym for Create a More Positive Rehoboth, was founded 24 years ago.  CAMP Rehoboth is a LGBT community service organization that has grown from its original small office on Baltimore Avenue, publishing a 4-page newsletter to a nationally-known organization with a long list of services, activities, events and programs.

The once modest Letters from CAMP Rehoboth newsletter now runs anywhere from 88 to 120 pages an issue.

Visitors are invited to visit the Rehoboth Beach Museum to view past issues of the newsletter, photos and t-shirts from the early days of the organization.

The shovel used to break ground for the new community center is on display, as is a bumper sticker stating “Keep Rehoboth a Family Town”, a tangible example of the tensions in the community that led to the founding of CAMP Rehoboth.  Also on display is a framed ceremonial copy of SB121 which added the words “sexual orientation” as a protected class under Delaware’s non-discrimination laws.

The Rehoboth Beach Museum is open 10 – 4 from Monday through Friday, 11 – 3 Saturday and Sunday.  It is located at 511 Rehoboth Avenue by the Rehoboth Beach Visitor’s Center and by the Roundabout.  Admission is by donation.  Call 302-227-7310 for more information.  And, please visit http://www.rehobothbeachmuseum.org

Don’t want to cook?  I don’t blame you.  It is a holiday week-end, afterall.  Earl is cooking again, all week-end long at Rustic Acres Farm.

This is also the home of Rehoboth Dairy.  He will have chicken and ribs, while they last.  He told me they are the best and that the meat falls off the bones.  You be the judge.  Stop by and check them out.  They are located on Holland Glad Rd.  If you are coming from Rehoboth and Dewey, just turn right after Tomato Sunshine.  That’s Holland Glade Rd.  Then, go almost all the way to the end of the road.  They will be on the left.  If you are coming from the Lewes areas and points north, then you will have to turn around at the intersection of Rt. 1 and Shuttle Rd., then turn right after Tomato Sunshine.

dscn7557dscn7559

They have local produce, like green tomatoes, red tomatoes, and melons.  Earl told me his corn is the best and he gets it from Greenwood.  By the way their milk is awesome!!  I rave about it all the time.  But, Earl also told me that his cream is unbelievable….if you like cream soups he said you won’t taste a better soup if it is made with his cream.  Cows are in the back.  Fresh!!  I almost forgot, they serve ice cream too.

As I sat on the beach in Rehoboth on Thursday, I was watching this little boy.  It reminded me of my kids.  They loved the beach.  This little guy was with his father.  It looked like it was his first time of the beach.  He was adorable.
