CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 20 - August 26, 1993 - 11 CAPE LIFE Briefly Cordelia Macintire photo Hazzard Museum welcomes Pyle painting The Anna Hazzard Museum of the Rehoboth Reach Historical Society, located on Christian Street in Rehoboth Beach, is the proud new home of "Strolling After the Rain on Rehoboth Boardwalk in 1910," an acrylic on canvas painting purchased by the Historical Society from the artist, Dana J. Pyle, Jr., of Wilmington and Rehoboth Reach. Pyle's painting, which took the Mrs. Robert McClellan Memorial Third Place Award in the Rehoboth Art League's 55th Annual Member's Show recently, depicts the Boardwalk as it appeared over 80 years ago. Pyle used historic photographs, postcards, and the memories of local oldtimers to recreate the scene. Pictured here at the dedication are: (from left) Evelyn Thoroughgood, President of Rehoboth Historical Society; Charles Palmer, Director RAL; Dana Pyle, Jr., artist; Helen Bieber, RHS Secretary; Commissioner Dick Darley, RHS Treasurer and city Haison; Commis- sioner Jack Silan, RHS member. The Anna Hazzard Museum is open to the public on Wednesdays from 1-3 p.m., or by appoint- ment by calling in advance. Volunteers also are needed to help with tours. Beebe publishes health resources guide A comprehensive guide to resources at Beebe Medical Center has been published by Beebe's Department of Corporate Affairs for the ben- efit of health care consumers it serves. The 32-page brochure features information on educational programs for community members and health professionals such as paramedics, lifeguards and caregivers, hospital-sponsored support groups, special events, screening programs and specialty services offered at Beebe. The guide also provides information on programs such as Beebe's resource lending library, language bank and hospital tours. A hospital directory provides direct-dial phone numbers for many hospital depart- ments. Included in the guide are coupons for 20 percent discount on new course registrations, as well as a postage-paid postcard which users can mail into the hospital requesting additional information or brochures on other services such as the Women's Health Pavilion, Beebe's School of Nursing and physician referral services. "We've had numerous requests for this kind of publication from area residents, local chambers of commerce and community offerings." The guide is available through the Department of Corporate Affairs, and can be obtained by calling 645-3529.

Campers can worship at Cape State Park There is no music to accompany the small woman as she sings a familiar hymn from her missal. Her voice is strong, confident and the words rebound off the wooden walls like a finely tuned instru- ment. The tiny assemblage is held rapt, eyes gazing forward towards the commanding figure in front of them. They show no hint of dis- comfort from the plain benches they sit upon, only a collective serenity grace their faces. This scenario is probably played out in countless communities across America. It's part of small town and rural life. Except on this startling summer Sunday morning, the church and the service is being conducted in Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes. You may have passed it without so much as a glance on your way to the beach at the Point. Although it sits high on a grassy hill, the street has long since abandoned its traffic. The view from the church is across from a gymnasium no longer in use only housing memories that are now decorated with broken windows and shattered glass. Today the minister steps for- ward and reads from a Bible. He guides the small group through a AROUND TOWN series of readings that serves to stimulate and unite their thoughts. There is no air-conditioning, but the breeze is fresh through the open windows, and the sound of the sea-gulls act as a reminder of the bond with nature. According to AI Glindemann, the lay leader, the church grew out of requests by campers to the Park Service because they wanted an opportunity to attend an early, brief ecumenical worship service in a camping environment. The church structure itself in the State Park was previously used during World War II. Now the whole congregation rises, their voices swelling in one effort. Some are dressed casually in shorts and T-shirts, while others assume a more traditional appear- ance for church. There are a few young chi.ldren, leaning on their parents; their faces still posturing sleep. A1 Glindemann explains, "The services are sponsored by the Lewes-Rehoboth Association of Churches and the State Park Ser- vice. It is non-denominational, but basically Christian. We have a regular schedule that the churches rotate from; one week it's a repre- sentative from the Episcopal Church, another week it's from the Methodist or Presbyterian, etc." Al is the incoming President of the Lewes-Rehoboth Association of Churches and is affiliated with the Lutheran Church of Our Sav- ior in Rehoboth Beach. "The service starts at 8 a.m. and the park service will permit any- one to come into the park for ser- vices before 8 a.m. free. There is no charge."
