26"-CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, September 25 October 1, 1998 Trish Vernon photos The Rehoboth Beach Kiwanis Club has launched a campaign to raise funds for expansion of the Kent Street Scout House, seen above, right, in order to house both the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts. They will remove the back annex and add space on the side as well as a second floor in the back where the Kiwanis can meet, as shown in the artist's rendering below, right. Above, architecht Michael Cohalan, P-. of Lewes, left, looks over plans with Jack Eliason, chairman of the campaign. If they raise the necessary funds, the project should be complete by the summer of 2000. Rehoboth Kiwanis Club launches campaign to expand Scout House The Kiwanis Club of Rehoboth Beach will kick off a yearlong fundraising campaign in Octobe to raise ,money to, refurbish anc t expand the Scout House, locate at 84 Kent St. in Rehoboth Beach t The building is currently in a state of disrepair and inadequate to meet the needs of the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts who use the build- ing for their meetings and activi- ties. "The problem is that the boys and girls have different needs in terms of space and storage and we want to have the girls back at the Scout House," said Jack Eliason, past president of the Kiwanis Club and chairman of the Kiwanis Foundation, who is chairing the campaign. "With the expansion, the girls will have as much space as the boys." The addition, which includes a second floor in which members of the Kiwanis Club can hold meetings, will total 2,000- square feet, with the entire struc- ture to encompass 3,500-square feet, 500-square feet of which will be a replacement for the present back wing, Architect Michael J. Cohalan, R.A., of Lewes, has de- signed a building that will remain relatively unobtrusive in this pri- marily residential area of the city: They hope to have the renova- tions completed by June 2000, but the timetable is being dictated by their obtaining state grants and the success of the campaign. Kiwanis has sponsored the 70- years-old local Boy Scout troop for the past 68 years. During that time, the troop has produced 22 Eagle Scouts and both the Scout Troop and the Kiwanis Club rec- ognize these outstandifig achiev- ers. The campaign has set a goal of $103,000, which when coupled with state grants totaling $32,000, will reach the estimated $135,000 total cost of the project. Q I want a new look for my sofa and I am thinking about slipcovlers. What are the benefits of slipcovers? A Sue Stevenson Slipcovers are hot right now! A slipcover is essentially a "dress" for your sofa or chair. It can easily be removed to change your look or to have it cleaned. You can choose a tight fit to mimic upholstery or a more up to date loose fit that is seen in all of the magazines today. With so many choices of fabrics, there are endless possibilities, including mixing and matching patterns on the same piece of furniture. Expect slipcovers to cost a little more than half of what reupholstering costs. Q A When I Shop for wallpaper the' choices are so overwhelming it makes my head spin. Isn't there an easier way? Help! Here at Dreamweaver Interiors, we have devised a wallpaper reference guide. It categorizes wall coverings into subjects and themes (Novelties, Seashore, Children's etc. ) making it easier for us to assist you in finding the perfect selection. You can sit back and relax while we sort through a staggering array of books to bring you a manageable set of options. If we don't find it in our books, we have access to additional choices in our computer. We suggest the final selection decision be made in your home and if you'd like we could install it. Ron Oronzio : \\; Q A I would like to have hardwood floors installed in my living room. Since we "live" in this room I am imncerned about the amount of time we will not be able to use it. How long will I be without my room? Our first choice in finishing is applying 3 coats of an Oil Based Polyurethane Finish. This process takes up to five days including time to remove and put back any furniture. We can cut that time somewhat by using a Fast Dry Water Based Finish which takes an average of two days, but adds to the cost. Another option is a Pre-finished Floor which may be used as soon as the installation is complete. !i!i!%!!!!!iiii!i iiiii!!ii:iiiiiii{!i!i!ililil Josh & Mike Stevenson Visit our Showroom 1521 Savannah Rd., Lewes to schedule a no-costno obligation In-Home Consultation.
