RBDBA Continued from page 48 mann, who has taken over the Pro- motion Committee chairmanship from John Kleitz, placed at the helm within the past week. Slated for Saturday and Sunday, April 20-21, Achtermann admitted that he is at a disadvantage at pulling the event together properly for 1996. He noted that the Rehoboth Art League will continue to oversee the Art in the Park at the Grove that weekend, adding that he would like to see the event take on a more city-wide flavor rather than being confined in the Con- vention Center as it was last year. "I'm hoping to get feedback from the merchants on ways to get everyone involved in a special city-wide even t which will attract visitors. Perhaps they could serve dishes with edible flowers at restaurants and develop flower themes at retail shops," Achter- mann suggested, adding that they hope to use the Grotto lot for ven- dors. "At the least, I hope to get ideas and suggestions we can work on for 1997." Achtermann said it will also be a good gauge on support for Main Street. "It's an op- portunity to join in and al- so learn if this is the type of event they want Main Street to or- ganize for AClrrlgRMANN them, and I hope to get organizations such as the VIA, Sussex Gardeners and the scouts involved," he said. He would also like to hold the event in conjunction with another non-profit organization, such as the senior center, so they could reap some of the profits as well, and have businesses allow sfich civic groups sell products from their stores. "I'm desperately seeking people with ideas, suggestions, and any- one who would like to volunteer. I want to bring as much enthusiasm as possible to the event and hope the merchants rally around," Achtermann added. Anyone wish- ing to join in should call him at 227-2511, ext. 333. Milton Continued from page 48 as well as The Peninsula Collec- tion in Lewes. J.R. Clark moved to nominate Lynn Rogers, of Rogers Sign Compa- ny, Inc. to run for vice presi- dent. Jack ROGERS Hudson sec- onded the motion. A short while later Hud- son nominated Clark to run for president. Clark is the owner of the Harbor Cafe in Milton. With the exception of Debbie Coverdale, who will step down from her post, the directors have all agreed to retain their positions. They are as follows: Mary Cather- ine Hopkins, Connie Fish- er, Pauline Wilson, and Carol Virnel- li. The nomi- nating com- mittee has CLARK asked Frank Gordy, of Gordy Insurance Com- pany, to run for the open direc- tor's seat, and according to Churchman, Gordy agreed.

Flat tax, zoning top resort chamber agenda The Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce is planning an action-packed general membership meeting for noon on Wednesday, March 6 at the Sea Horse Restaurant. Pat Campbell-White will show a nine-minute video on the pro- posed flat tax and distribute infor- mation on the subject- an oppor- tunity to find out if the tax can save or cost money. She will also offer an update on the legislative impact on small business and the Washington legislative agenda as set at the White House Confer- ence. Beverly Ward from the Easter Seal Society will provide informa- tion on the new partnership be- tween her organization and the Chamber, as well as opportunities for area businesses. Then Sussex County Council- man George Cole will discuss the proposed C-2 zoning ordinance and how it proposes to increase business accountability. The Rehoboth-Dewey Chamber has also announced that the board of directors has voted unanimous- ly to increase the number of direc- tors from 15 to 17, "due to the de- mand placed on current board members as a result of increased membership," said Executive,Di- rector Carol Everhart. The in- crease will be put to the general membership for a vote at the March 2 meeting. Should the amendment to the by-laws be adopted, for the re- mainder of 1996 two board mem- bers will be appointed to serve, with the additional seats going up for election in 1997. It is the aim to insure representation for Dewey Beach, downtown Re- hoboth Beach and Route One and to increase the chamber's execu- tive board to include the cham- ber's board representative to the Sussex County Convention and Tourism Commission.
