"Tab Talk" 

Developers Blog- By: Tabitha Golt (Project Manager)


Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Patricia Ann Metoyer and Thomas Harry Monroe. As many know, we have lost two members of our community in recent weeks.  As sad as the losses have made us, it truly has shown us what a wonderful, close knit community we have become.  All of us here at the Peninsula, both the staff and homeowners alike, have come to love and cherish each other and are an integral part of each another's lives.  Despite the challenges we sometimes face while operating a complex community like The Peninsula, these last few weeks have been a reminder of just how important our relationships with one another are.  Let's not lose sight of that, no matter what.  In the future, at the family's discretion, the Management Team will send out a community email with details for funeral arrangements, celebrations of life, and other information.  This will take place in addition to the lowering of our American Flag to half-mast during the family's time of bereavement.

Take a look at The Peninsula Golf & Country Club's new clubhouse under construction with Donald DeMasters!

The new pond fountain on hole 13 is now in place and operating.  Due to the size of the spray the fountain had to be installed with a wind gauge that will reduce the size of the spray based on wind speeds. The fountain is lit at night and runs 7:00 am to 1:00 am.  Several members have given me positive compliments on the new fountain and I hope you get a chance to see it soon.

Have you downloaded the Peninsula App?

The Peninsula Golf & Country Club app is free, easy to use, and provides an interactive combination of comprehensive course information, GPS positioning, digital scorecard, augmented reality range finder, and various other useful club-specific features.

Lewes's 4th of July Celebration

July 4, 2016 

9:00 am to 6:00 pm

The City of Lewes continues its long tradition of hosting old-fashioned games for children on Second Street beginning at 9 am.  For the safety of the participants, Second Street will be closed while the games are in progress and will re-open at the conclusion of the games.  

Following the games, the Lewes Independence Day Boat Parade will wind its way down the Lewes - Rehoboth canal from the Roosevelt Inlet to Fisherman's Wharf as part of the City of Lewes' 4th of July holiday festivities.   Dr. Nancy Targett has been named the parade's Honorary Grand Marshal to honor her service to the Lewes community for 33 years. Prior to serving as the Acting President at the University of Delaware, Dr. Targett served as the Dean of the University's College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment, located at the Lewes campus. She just completed her term as President and although she has accepted the position of provost and vice president of academic affairs at the University of New Hampshire, effective September 1, 2016, she and her husband Tim plan to keep their Lewes home. She has also served on the Greater Lewes Foundation board of directors since 2001.

The parade entrants will leave from Roosevelt Inlet across from the Coast Guard Station at 1:30 pm and reach the judges' reviewing stand at Fisherman's Wharf at approximately 2:00 pm. Mayor Ted Becker will announce the parade with amplification in the area of Fisherman's Wharf and the City Dock. The parade judges are members of City Council, board directors from the Lightship Overfalls Foundation and the Lewes Chamber of Commerce. This is the 13th year that the Lewes Chamber of Commerce and the Overfalls Foundation have jointly sponsored the Independence Day Boat Parade.

 All pre-registered boat entrants will be eligible for prizes that include a unique hand-carved figurine by local carver Bert Long, a member of the organizing committee.  The figurine will be awarded to the most creatively decorated boat.  First, Second and Third Place Ribbons will also be awarded. All boat entrants will receive merchandise prizes from the Overfalls Foundation. Boats will be judged on the best use of patriotic decorations. 

At the conclusion of the parade, all boat entrants are invited to attend the Awards Ceremony on the deck of the Lightship Overfalls at 3:30 pm.  To be eligible for a prize, the vessel must be registered prior to 10:00 am on July Fourth.  

Registration forms will be available at the Lewes Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center in the Fisher-Martin House in Zwaanendael Park, at Pilottown Marina on Pilottown Road and the Lewes Harbour Marina Bait and Tackle at the end of Anglers Road.  For more information, call the Lewes Chamber of Commerce (302) 645-8073.  Late, unregistered entries are invited to join the parade by arriving at the Roosevelt Inlet at 1:30 pm, tuning a VHF radio to channel 65 and following instructions.

There is no charge to participate as an entrant in the boat parade or to be a spectator.  Good viewing spots line the canal on both sides and go on a first come basis.

Later in the afternoon, the Doo-Dah Parade will begin around 5 on its regular route toward town on Kings Highway, Savannah Road and then onto Second Street.  The day is jam-packed with lots of fun for the whole family!!
