Revelation, Hudson Fields continue Thankful Thursdays-Summer 2021
Revelation Craft Brewing Company and Hudson Fields have collaborated for a new community-focused event called Thankful Thursdays, which will support more than 20 nonprofits this summer season.

Many nonprofit organizations canceled fundraising events last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thankful Thursdays aims to provide support for these organizations, while also providing a family-fun atmosphere filled with good food, great brews and local music.

“We want to help give back and provide this wonderful outdoor space for nonprofits to have the opportunity to raise money for their organizations,” said Kyle Shaffer, marketing and sales manager, Revelation Craft Brewing. “Our goal is to help these organizations and raise money in an outdoor space where people and their families can come together and have fun and feel safe.”

Christian and Julie Hudson and Revelation have partnered for the last two years on Fridays and Saturdays by having a beer garden at the hangar at Hudson Fields. Proceeds and beer sales benefited Beebe Medical Foundation, which recently received a check for more than $4,000.

The recent fundraising event for injured Cape Henlopen High School student Gavin Birl raised more than $130,000 to help with his medical bills.

“This is what Revelation is all about – we’re a family- and community-oriented organization. Beer is our passion, but without this community, it wouldn’t be possible. We’re so happy to continue this partnership at Hudson Fields,” said Patrick Staggs, founder and brewmaster of Revelation.

5th Annual You Matter We Care 2021 Conference (Web Series)

The 5th Annual YOU MATTER WE CARE summit will be viz Zoom. This web series will bring a panel of boys & Men of color and experts together to explore and process life. Hosted by Dr. Brittany Hazzard, Ed.D., LMSW, owner of LifeCHAMPS LLC and chairperson of IMPACT Delaware Inc. The Co-Host will be Dr. Julius, Ed.D, LPCMH, Co-CEO of IMPACT Delaware Inc. The topics will include Family, Church, Community, Education, Mental Health, Law Enforcement, Athletics and Entrepreneurship. Our goal is to provide a healing and safe space that will cultivate growth. We will EDUCATE, ENCOURAGE, AND EMPOWER!

Dr. Brittany Hazzard began the You Matter We Care movement 5 years ago. She held the first conference 5 years ago. The goal was and still is to highlight and build on the strengths of black and brown people. Her mission is to support people in reaching their fullest potential. She believes that in order for that to happen one has to have efficient, consistent, and genuine support. The You Matter We Care conference focuses on males of color because so much or our world focuses on their struggles, and we will shine light on their strengths. Intentional empowerment and strength based approaches along with providing support and resources counter the negativity that often drains and oppresses our black boys, we need them to thrive in the fact that they can and will reach their fullest potential.

Dr. Hazzard have mentored and coached black males for over 10 years. She wanted to create the conference to expand the support to reach more as well as those who love and support our black males as well.

Panelists for 6-12-21 include: Cliffvon Howell (Caesar Rodney School District Equity Coordinator), Andre’ Allen (Chesapeake Public Schools District School Social Worker & Man Up Alumni) – current man up mentee (black male middle school student).

This event is open to males of color and those who support them…teachers, family, community, mental and behavioral health professionals, church leaders/members, and all of males of color in your life!

After a one-year hiatus due to (COVID) restrictions our historical tour guide, Jean Brolund, is back and ready to take you on a tour of downtown Rehoboth Beach from the bandstand on main street of town throughout the boardwalk and side streets. Jean has been doing these tours for the Rehoboth Beach Museum for over 5years. She combines her knowledge of the ever-changing history of Rehoboth Beach with her personal memories. Jean summered in Rehoboth Beach beginning in 1958 and lived in a tent house during that time. After she moved to the area permanently in 2012, she joined the Museum and supplemented her personal knowledge from our archives.
This historical tour provides general information about the history of Rehoboth Beach and the changing streetscape of buildings over the years, both businesses and residential. Ms. Brolund will lead walkers from the bandstand along Rehoboth Avenue, pointing out landmarks and providing photos of historical sites and events. While touching on several of the storms that have shaped the coastline and the beachfront in town other topics covered will be the Native peoples of the area, The Methodist Camp Meetings, Hotels and Railroad service, and Horn’s Pavilion.
Other topics on the tour may include shipwrecks, naming ships such as the Falmouth, the Merrimac, the Severn and the SS Thomas Tracy, the railroad, the Belhaven Hotel, restaurants such as the Robert Lee, Snyder’s and, of course, Funland.
The tour is a gentle 2 hour stroll around downtown Rehoboth Beach. Tour participants are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water or fill up a water bottle at the historic Women’s Christian Temperance Union Fountain on the boardwalk; one of the landmarks mentioned on the tour. There are restrooms available at the bandstand area.

Friends of Rehoboth Beach Museum Form Team to Help With Historic Documents
Rehoboth Beach, DE – A group of interested members and friends of the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society and Museum joined forces to help with an interesting research task, adding detail to the earliest days of what became Rehoboth Beach.
After helping transcribe a brief poem from the museum’s collection, the group, called the Transcription Team, took on a larger project of transcribing 44 pages of meeting minutes from an early group of area leaders in the late 19th Century.
In a well-documented attempt to create a religious retreat in the late 19th Century, a committee of ministers and laymen from Wilmington, Delaware formed The Rehoboth Camp Meeting Association. The Association, led by Rev. Robert Todd, bought property from 5 area landowners in 1873 to form the Rehoboth Camp Meeting Association. Society director Nancy Alexander discovered hand-written meeting minutes from the group of interested parties who took over those lands after the Association dissolved.
“A group of gentlemen who owned lots in near the ocean within the then defunct Association boundaries banded together in 1891 to promote the area, take on debt, and hire a town manager of sorts,” said Alexander. “They elected officials, paid bills, and called the area Cape Henlopen City.”
The effort was short-lived. After changing the charter to Henlopen City in 1891, it was re-named Rehoboth in 1893. Nevertheless, the brief period of time in which Cape Henlopen City existed re-cast the area as a resort town, and ushered in a period of renewed commercial growth.
The Transcription Team viewed more than 40 hand-written pages, most on stationery from the Clayton House in Wilmington, Delaware, and collectively provided written documentation of the meetings that formed Cape Henlopen City.
“This was an interesting task and the museum is grateful to all of the volunteers who helped, especially Gail Shaffer who compiled all of the transcriptions and created one document,” said Alexander.
The Rehoboth Beach Museum is operated by the Rehoboth Beach Historical Society. The Society hosts on-line programs and memberships are available. Programs and recorded videos are accessible at www.rehobothbeachmuseum.org.
