Dover Days will be going on this coming weekend during our trip to the final weekend of Rehoboth Beach Historical Society and Museum’s Needlework Exhibit in Rehoboth Beach, DE. Finding a Civil War Era Baseball Game at Dover Days and golfing at Midway Par 3 Golf in Lewes, DE has made Bill very happy about the weekend! And, we are meeting up with Brenda C & her husband for dinner Saturday night – that’ll be fun! With the great weather we are having, it should be a fantastic weekend. The only problem is going to be the pollen – it is wicked here in Philly – maybe going south & getting closer to the ocean will help.

So, the reason for this entry is because I almost missed Dover Days. I finally had the brilliant idea to create a list of the events that are interesting and within driving range for me. I am constantly looking for items to put in our newsletter called “Upcoming Local Events”. And, it dawned on me that I am recreating the wheel even for the regular events. Then, I thought maybe some of you might be coming to area and I should post it here as well. Do check for all the details on the websites I provided. I am not associated in any way with any of these events nor do I take responsibility if dates shift. If the links don’t work, please do a google search to locate the event.

I’ll keep adding to the list. And, if you do visit, let’s do dinner! Safe travels & enjoy!!
