Operation SEAs the Day to host wounded warriors Sept. 4-9

August 19, 2018

Final plans are underway for Operation SEAs the Day’s 6th Annual Warrior Beach Week. From Tuesday, Sept. 4, to Sunday, Sept. 9, Bethany Beach will host 32 very important families. Residents and visitors can continue to show these deserving fellow Americans that Bethany Beach is a community that cares.

From 6 to 9 p.m., Thursday, warrior families will be in downtown Bethany Beach having dinner, shopping and enjoying the beauty of the town. Warrior families can be recognized by the red, white and blue ID tags they wear from Operation SEAs the Day. When people see them, they can thank them for their service and sacrifice.

Community members can line the streets from 4:45 to 5 p.m. Friday to cheer and recognize the wounded warrior families as a motorcade travels from Sea Colony Marketplace along Route 1 through South Bethany and onto Route 54 in Fenwick toward Selbyville and into Bayside/Freeman Stage. Attendees can wear red, white and blue and wave American flags as the VIFs ride by, or come to Bayside and give these brave men and woman the hero’s welcome home they deserve as they arrive between 5 and 5:15 p.m.

Operation SEAs the Day 2018 merchandise can be purchased at Sea Colony Beach Shoppe at Sea Colony Marketplace, Route 1, or at Bethany Sea Crest, 99 Garfield Parkway, Bethany Beach.

The business community has risen to the occasion with more than 100 businesses contributing to assure a great week for the honored heroes and their families. These businesses display Proud Supporter of Operation SEAs the Day signs in the windows.

A classic car show will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday at Cripple Creek Golf and Country Club, 29494 Cripple Creek Drive, Dagsboro.
