Rehoboth Main Street thanks supporters

December 15, 2017

I would like to take the opportunity on behalf of the board and volunteers of Rehoboth Beach Main Street to spread thanks and appreciation to all involved in the successful and inaugural Rehoboth Beach Main Street holiday event, Cookies, Cocktails & Cheer.
A snowy night did not stop many in our community from coming out to experience the best of our business community: sweet and delicious cookies and cocktails from our amazing downtown restaurants, and holiday cheer and special offers from our unique, and treasured stores and boutiques.
In fact, the snow decorated downtown Rehoboth Beach, making our holiday celebration that much more magical.

This night would not have happened without the efforts of many dedicated elves. Entertainment was expertly provided by our major sponsor iHeart Radio (FROGGY 99.99, MAGIC 98.9, Q105 & KISS local stations) who broadcast the event live.

Additionally, the talented CAMP Rehoboth Choir and youthful, enthusiastic KeeNote Kids strolled downtown spreading their cheer with carols inside and outside to the delight of all, and Santa made a pre-Christmas appearance to hear the wishes of children and adults alike. Thank you Dennis Diehl.
This event would not have been possible without the assistance of the mayor, city manager, and city communications director who helped guide the new RBMS board to put on a safe and enjoyable event.

Special thanks goes to our 100-plus top-shelf restaurants and shops; if they are open year-round, they were involved! That's true community support. Their desire to bring our community together for a night of unity made our event possible.

May I suggest you reward their commitment to community by supporting those businesses on a regular basis.

No words can accurately express the gratitude and appreciation to one amazing Special Events Committee - Susan Kehoe of Browseabout Books, Pete Borsari of The Pond and 1st & Pond, Megan Kee of Fable, Nick Pawson of Fable, Ryan Schwamberger of Dogfish Head Brewpub and Chesapeake & Maine, Cathy Deighan of iHeart Radio, Danielle Panarello of SoDel Concepts, and five additional, awesome and supportive RBMS board members. This dedicated and driven group managed to pull off a wonderful, inaugural Cookies, Cocktails & Cheer event for Rehoboth Beach Main Street. Thank you to all and have a safe and healthy holiday season.

president, Rehoboth Beach Main Street Board of Directors
