This is a new style of marker with text on both sides and designed in a new color. Unveiling the marker are (l-r) Shirley Pettit and Mary Joseph, church members who organized the documents for the marker, and Rep. Pete Schwartzkopf, D-Rehoboth Beach. The text describing the historical signifi- cance of Conley's Chapel begins: "On February 9, 1838, a meeting was held at the Angola Schoolhouse for the purpose of formally organizing a Methodist Episcopal Church to serve the needs of local residents." The ROv. Randy Booth, pastor of Conley's, presided over the dedication ceremony. Special recognition was given to the efforts of church members Mary Joseph and Shirley Pettit, Delaware Secretary of State Harriet Smith Windsor, Rep. Pete Schwartzkopf, D- Rehoboth Beach, and Russ McCabe and his staff at the Delaware Public Archives, in making the marker a reality. The current chapel was built in 1875 and the adjacent cemetery dates back to the 1860s. Although it is 170 years old, Conley's continues to grow in its service to the com- munity and beyond. In response to an expanding membership, a new church will be built on Route 24 in the near future. Everyone is invited to see the marker at the intersection of Robinsonville Road and • Conley's Chapel Road. Contact the church office at 945-1881 for more information.
