Dewey Beach to honor lifeguards July 5 Dewey Beach will honor its lifeguards at the Dewey Beach Lifesaving Station, Dagsworthy Avenue, at 11:30 a.m., Saturday, July 5, with the Annual 4th of July BBOe. Following a 30-year-old tradi- tion, Dewey Beach will honor its lifeguards with a BBQeatered by Bethany Blues. For some 20 years, the captain of the Dewey Beach Patrol Todd Fritchman and his late wife Kelly schlepped grills, cooked and bought ham- burgers and hot dogs for the lifeguards on the Fourth of July. "These kids do a great job, and they deserve a little treat. But it wasn't fair for Todd and his wife to pay for everything out of their own pocket and do all the cook- hag" said Steve Huse, treasurer of the Dewey Beach Civic League. "So some residents and busi- nesses stepped in to help." So for the last seven years the event was catered. Huse coor- dinated the effort for the civic league while the cost was split between Dewey Beach Enter- prises and the Starboard. The Starboard handled it all the last two years. With Dewey's new donation policy, it looked like the lifeguards might go hungry. Rob Marshall, civic league president, polled the board members, and this year the civic league will . pick up the check.
