Lewes among the 'prettiest places' in America The first-ever search to find the nation's most attractive painted places - launched earlier this year by the Rohm and Haas Paint Quality Institute (PQI) in conjunction with "Better Homes and Gardens" and "Architecture" magazines - has produced one nomination from Delaware - Lewes. Nationwide, nearly 300 communities have been nominated including at least one from all 50 states. Included are high-profile tourist destina- tions including Sante Fe, NM; Miami Beach, FL; and New Orleans, LA, as well as some lesser known sites such as Deadwood, SD, and Sleepy Hollow, NY. The Delaware nominee will vie for regional and national honors this summer as judges review the entries and make personal visits to the sites. The 12 "Prettiest Painted Places in America" will be revealed in September. Delmarva Power announced it will again sponsor the Governor's Walk at the 1997 Beach Day Cel- ebration on Friday, September 19 in Rehoboth Beach. Each year for nearly a decade, the company has sponsored walk- ers and provided other support to Beach Day. "Delmarva Power appreciates the opportunity to serve the needs of the communities through the Beach Day program," said Lee Perkins, Delmarva Power spokesman. " As a partner with various senior agencies and organizations, Del- marva Power can connect with se- niors and make a difference in their quality of life." Sponsor of Beach Day is DHSS's Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities, in partnership with Sussex County Senior Services, Inc. (CHEER). The event is held annually to help raise funds for Meals on Wheels of Delaware, Inc. Beach Day activities last year raised more than $5,600 for Meals on Wheels of Delaware, Inc. The money helps provide more than 3,500 meals delivered daily to seniors in Sussex County and throughout the state. Other events planned for Beach Day include a health fair, art ex- hibit, bingo, bandstand entertain- ment and craft sale. Beach Day draws thousands of visitors to Rehoboth Beach each year.
