The West Rehoboth community came together to mark the 6th Annual Peace March to Burton Village, August 4.

The Peace March was founded by Eleanor Whaley, who lost her son Coley Marchtman to a vicious gang beating in 2008.

"My son lost his life from injuries of a beating by four men,"said Whaley. "Each year we come together to march for peace and remember him. We are not West Rehoboth and Burton Village; we are all the West Rehoboth community."
