12 - CAPE GAZETIE, Friday, December 11 - December 17, i998 Rehoboth Community Unity Dinner brings people together A record crowd filled Rehoboth Beach Convention Center on Sun- day, Dec. 6, for the Fifth Annual Community Unity Spaghetti Din- ner sponsored by Rehoboth Beach Main Street. With all proceeds from the din- ner going to the betterment of downtown Rehoboth.Beach, the evening's highlight was the awarding of the Outstanding Citi- zen Award to Nick and Joan Caggiano, owners of Nicola Piz- za. Noting that the dinner was cre- ated as an occasion to bring to- gether all segments of the popula- tion each year in a spirit of com- munity, Rehoboth Beach Main Street President Kathy McGuiness explained that the Outstanding Citizen Award was created to honor a Rehoboth Beach resident or business owner who has con- tributed significant, long-term ser- vice to the community-at-large. The Caggianos were chosen, she said, "because of their long history of community activism, charitable contributions and vol- unteerism. For almost 30 years, Nicholas Caggiano and his family have given to and supported this community. We can't tell you how fortunate Rehoboth Beach is to have such a wonderful business and people in our town. We're proud to present the 1998 award to the Caggianos."
