Sea glass galore

The colors of sea glass will be on display along with an amazing selection of art at the Mid-Atlantic Sea Glass & Coastal Arts Festival from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 26 and 27. The event will benefit the Lewes Historical Society and take place at various society-owned properties in Lewes.

The focus in the event’s 11th year is to educate the public on the historic origins of sea glass and glass history over the past three centuries, while keeping the community safe. The festival will feature 40 sea glass and coastal-themed artists in various mediums including authentic sea glass, wood, photography, painting, ceramics, metal and sculpture.

“For this year’s event we are selling advance, timed tickets online in order to manage the number of people at the festival at any given time,” said Dana Ferreri, LHS events coordinator. “We will have one entry point and one exit, and a designated path for attendees to follow throughout the grounds. Vendors will be spaced throughout the campus along with plenty of hand sanitizing stations. Everyone will be wearing a face covering.”

Think teal!

By Nancy Katz
The color is teal, sometimes described as a soft greenish-blue. The month is September – National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. It’s still not too late to show your support by flying teal ribbons, wearing teal-colored rubber bracelets and displaying those teal lapel pins.

I am an ovarian cancer survivor. And if there’s one thing I know, it’s that cancer wants you to be quiet about this disease. It won’t like the attention. Hopefully the pandemic won’t put a dent in the spotlight. In the past, Lewes and Rehoboth would participate by putting up ribbons, and displaying literature and flyers. The explosion of color you would see on the main street in Lewes and in the business windows in Rehoboth was very encouraging to women and very distressing to cancer. The Delaware Ovarian Cancer Foundation sponsors the events. It is an active organization.

This is a disease that strikes at the very fabric of our society, women. The more knowledge you have, the better your chances of identifying this disease early. It often is considered a silent threat in that it presents very few complaints by which to make a diagnosis. But some of those symptoms are obvious; there may be abdominal distress, bloating, urinary symptoms and pelvic pain.

National Coffee Day is going to be swell

Surf Bagel’s two locations in Lewes and Rehoboth are brewing up a day of buzz-worthy happenings from 6:30 a.m., to 2 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 29. To celebrate, Surf Bagel will introduce, for a limited time, a coffee-infused bagel featuring Swell Joe Coffee’s Stoked roast. Surf Bagel will also officially launch Swell Joe Coffee’s Pumpin’ pumpkin spice blend by the cup and bag.

“We’re more excited than usual for National Coffee Day 2020, because this year, in particular, simple gestures like free coffee and giveaways can really lift people up – and why not use this occasion to bring a smile or two,” said Dave Vitella, Surf Bagel founder and co-owner.

Additional Sept. 29 offerings include: Free medium-sized coffee to every customer; free Pumpin’ pumpkin spice coffee lip balm made by Rehoboth Beach Balm to the first 50 customers at each shop; $2 off every 12 oz. bag of Swell Joe Coffee, ground or whole bean; $5 off every Swell Joe brewed-box-to-go coffee serving 10; and three free punches on each customer’s Surf Bagel Hang Ten Coffee Club card toward a future cup of coffee purchase.
