Rehoboth Museum memoir writing class to start May 4 While springtime is tradi- tionally a time to look ahead, museums are accustomed to looking back. That is why the Rehoboth Beach Museum will offer an opportunity for some personal retrospection. To kick off the season, the museum will offer a three-week series of work- shops on memoir writing at 10 a.m., Thursdays, May 4, 11 and 18. Of all the forms of nonfic- tion, memoir writing is the most personal, and it has become one of the most popular forms of written expression. Writing memoirs can provide an op- portunity to create a personal legacy for friends and family alike. But getting started can be a challenge. To guide that journey, these workshops will help stu- dents master - and practice - the basics of writing a good, readable memoir. No prior creative writ- ing experience is necessary. The workshop will be taught by Rae Tyson, a local journalist who teaches memoir writing courses at the University of Dela- ware's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute in Lewes. Registration is required. Fee is $20 for members and $25 for non- members. Proceeds will be used to support museum programs. The museum is at 511 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach. For more information or to register, call 302-227-7310.

THIS PAST YEAR, the State of Delaware refurbished George- town's Old Courthouse in a costly renovation including new shingles, reglazed windows, brightened trim, and extensive re- pair to the building’s roof, interior and chimney. The town's old- est building has taken on a refreshed appearance for the 2017 season. Originally built on The Circle in 1792, the structure was ini- tially restored for the national bicentennial in 1976. Only limited maintenance occurred in the 40 years following until last year's extensive rehabilitation. The public is invited to view the Old Courthouse from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, May 6. Docents in Colonial regalia will be present to talk of the new improvement as well as the historic features of the building. The Old Courthouse will continue to be open for visitors from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., each Saturday through Labor Day. The attrac- tion has abundant parking adjacent to the entry without charge, and is at 10 S. Bedford St., 100 feet south of Georgetown's cen- tral circle. Georgetown’s Old Courthouse is shown pre-renovation on the left and post-renovation on the right. RESTORED COURTHOUSE TO OPEN MAY 6 SUBMITTED PHOTO
