October is Domestic Violence month and the Village Improvement Association will be showing its support with a display at the Rehoboth Beach Public Library. The VIA Domestic Violence Committee, chaired by Irene Paonessa, has developed a concise and relevant card of emergency contact numbers, and these will be placed in restrooms of many of our local establishments, as well as available at the library display.
