Lewes neighbors complete Trail Challenge A group of walkers from Bay Breeze Estates in Lewes recently completed the Trail Challenge sponsored by the Delaware Divi- sion of Parks and Recreation. The challenge is to hike 15 des- ignated state park trails within a 12-month period and receive a Golden Boot Award. The trails are located within nine state parks throughout the state and range from the .8 mile prison camp trail at Fort Delaware to the 7.5 mile swamp forest trail at Lum's Pond, for a total of 40 miles. The group completed the chal- lenge in four months and gathered at the home of Bernie and Jack Welsh on Friday, Dec. 4, where their successful efforts were re- warded with a distinctive patch and a frameable certificate. It was Jack Welsh who orga- nized these neighborhood outings, noting it was always something he wanted to do, but didn't have the time until he retired. They en- joyed these walks so much, the group even sought out trails that weren't part of the official chal- lenge, noting that their favorite hike was Killen's Pond. "It was such fun - we did a lot of talking and really got to know our neighbors," said Welsh. "When we started we hardly knew each other and now we're great friends, besides getting some good exer- cise." They began their treks with Bur- ton's Island near Indian River In- let in April and hiked once a week in April and May. Those completing the challenge were Joseph Tabacek, Sandra Sharkey, Judy Steinman, Bob and Betty Vanderhout, Joe and Jackie Bateman and Jack Welsh. Others completing most or part of the trails were Bernie Welsh and Ron and Dot Barlow. " GAZETTE, Friday, December 11 - December 17, 1998. 27 Parsell Funeral Homes Candlelight Memorial Service Submitted photo RAL Cottage Tour donates to VIA Rehoboth Art League Cottage Tour chair Gail Shaffer, left, presents a check for $250 to Faith Duncan, Village Improve- ment Association (VIA) president, for restoration of the VIA garden. The check represents proceeds from the League's 49th annual Cottage Tour. Shaffer is immediate past presi- dent of the VIA and chaired the sold-out tour this past July. The VIA sponsored an annual art show in the 1920s and 1930s. The popularity of the show was one of the events that sparked the founding of the Rehoboth Art League. Decorating contest judging in Millsboro is Dec. 11 Residences and businesses in the 19966 ZIP code who want to take part in Millsboro's fourth annual holiday decorating contest, have until Friday, Dec. 11, to register. The contest is cosponsored by the Greater Millsboro Chamber of Commerce and Masten's Lumber Supply. The contest is free, but participants must call the Chamber office at 934- 6777 to register. Judging will take place on Monday and Tuesday evenings, Dec. 14-15. Four categories will be judged. The annual Candlelight Memorial Service of the Parsell Funeral Homes will be held Saturday, December 12, 1998 at 7:00 p.m. at 1449 Kings Highway, Lewes, DE. This service was first begun several years ago as a way for us to help the families that we have serviced over the past year through an often difficult first holiday period. The service will include clergy from the Protestant and Catholic Faiths as well as special music and a formal remembrance service. This year, we are opening the service not only to the families that we have served, but to members of the community who have suffered the recent loss of a loved one; or to anyone who would like to just pause and remember their loved one during a special service this holiday season. To assist us in planning, please make a courtesy call to the funeral home (302-645-9520) if you plan to attend.
