Area residents are invited to join members of the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society as it kicks off the summer season with a canal-side party at the Rehoboth Beach Museum. The party will be held from 4 to 6 p.m., Saturday, May 17, at the museum.
Guests will enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres, take a chance on winning raffle prizes, purchase plants for sale to fill in that last empty spot in a garden, and be part of the presentation of the Hall of Fame Award to Greg Ferrese, former city manager.
Tickets are $25 for members and $35 for nonmembers. Raffle tickets can be purchased at the event and are three for $5 or seven for $10. Raffle items include theater tickets, jewelry, and gift cards to local retail shops.
Make a reservation by phone with a credit card by calling 302-227-7310 or by dropping off payment at the museum. The museum is at 511 Rehoboth Ave. Parking is available, and the museum is handicapped accessible. Admission is by donation.
