League President Named 2007 Volunteer of the Year
Recognizing the contributions of the Dewey Beach Civic League to the community over the past year, Civic League President David Main was named "Volunteer of the Year" by the Mayor and Town Council in an award presented at the Rehoboth Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner on Thursday, Jan. 17 in Rehoboth Beach. The Mayor noted that the mission of the Civic League is solely to do good things for the town and the community, and praised the League's leadership in working toward that goal in many effective ways. Main noted that Dewey Beach is full of very dedicated volunteers who have put substantial time and effort into improving the town, noting Town Beautification Chair and Commissioner Diane Hanson, in particular. Volunteer Webmaster Dick Cleaveland, membership chairman and Treasurer Bob Duncan, and other members of the Board and League committees also deserve great credit he said. At the dinner, a variety of other awards and recognitions were presented, including business of the year (The Cultured Pearl), lifeguard of the year, and several other service awards and scholarships.
