"We want to attract more visitors and make sure that Rehoboth Beach is a wonderful place to live in, work in and visit." In her short tenure as executive director (she took over the reins in the spring), Jacobs has been&apos; forced to focus much of her atten- tion on the July Fourth Fireworks Extravaganza, managing to raise enough funds at the llth hour to break even this year. But as she has settled into her job, she notes she has "met so many people who take pride in their homes and businesses. I'm overwhelmed with the number of people who really care about the physical aspects of the city and I want to impress upon them that Main Street does so much more than f'treworks!" Presently, the main goal for Main Street "is to get feedback Rehoboth Beach Main Street is launching a major membership campaign as the summer season winds down and new Executive Director Fay Jacobs can direct her energies toward building a stronger organization. In an effort to get the Main Street message across, Jacobs is embarking upon a mailing blitz to all downtown Rehoboth Beach businesses, explaining the various Main Street endeavors and seek- ing input from the business com- munity as to what tacks they want Main Street to take.
