54 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 22 - August 28, 1997 Resort chamber plans Labor Day visitor thank you party The Rehoboth Beach-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce will hold the second annual "Picket Party" from 2 to 4 p.m., Monday, Sept. I on Rehoboth Avenue outside the chamber of- rice. Everyone is invited to come, with a sign thanking visitors for visiting and asking that they return as soon as they can. People can also bring their own signs to hold up, and the chamber will remind them of the upcoming Jazz Festival and Sea Witch Festival through sings. The chamber will provide refreshments and snacks. Above, former chamber president Kay Wheatley and daughter Emily are two of the wellwishers found last year. Milton Continued from page 50 the chamber is back and here to stay." Dougherty, co-owner with Har- ris of A Walk Thru Time, has been working with chamber trea- surer Beverly White to create a budget document that shows monthly balances and estimated income and expenses. The newly designed treasurer's record allows members to keep track of how ac- tual expenses and income match the projected figures; and to see how different projects and fixed expenses add to and subtract from the general operating expenses. Making members aware of the financial health of the organiza- tion has been a goal of the new chamber officers. Harris said that everyone is pleased with the success of Bar- gainS on, the Broadkill, and with new memberships that are coming in; however, the organization will take a conservative approach with their finances. At the end of 1996, the Milton Chamber of Commerce found it- self operating in the red with out- standing bills and financial records that needed to be brought up to date. Since then, the organi- zation has paid off a backlog of bills, and members are beefing up traditional fundraisers and coming up with new ones, as well as re- cruiting new members. The latest addition as a money maker is a basket raffle that was unveiled at Bargain'S on the Broadkill. The large Longeberger basket, the 1996 Hostess basket, was donated by chamber secretary Debbi Spencer, and it is stuffed with gifts from businesses and in- dividuals in Milton. Included in the basket are gift certificates, jewelry, toys, antiques, country craft items and personal care products. Spencer, owner of Debbi's Clippers & Curls, said that the basket itself is a collector's item, and the contents continue to grow as area people come in with addi- tional donations. Tickets are $1 or six for $5, and the drawing for the basket is Saturday, Sept. 13, 12 noon, during the semi-annual townwide yard sale. In addition to the basket raffle, the chamber is renting spaces in Milton Memorial Park for that day. Harris said that those from out of town will want to take ad- vantage of the hundreds of people that come into Milton for the townwide yard sale. Spaces are $10, and are available for those who want to sell yard sale items or crafts. Those who rent space must provide their own tables or dis- play surface. The hours of rental are 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Three new members were an- nounced at the August chamber meeting. Recent joiners are Sandy and Mike Dominquez, the Tackle Shack; Shelley and Fred Sposato, Pine Hollow House Bed and Breakfast and Phyllis Hammond, individual member. Other upcoming Milton Cham- ber of Commerce events include the Pumpkin Festival and the Hol- ly Festival.
