Help fight the Rehoboth ocean outfall pipe from your computer or phone
The city of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware has a vote this Saturday to borrow the money to build an ocean outfall pipe to pump treated sewage water into the ocean. Here’s what you can do to help fight this project:
(1) Identify phone numbers for property owners in the city based the owner’s name and address. We’ll send you names and addresses; you only need to use whitepages.com to find their phone number.
(2) Call property owners to tell them about the vote this Saturday to decide if the city will borrow the money to build the pipe.
Can you offer 10 minutes to help find phone numbers or call property owners? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
No car? No problem. Need ride buddies? No problem.
Chapter members have been asking about a way to coordinate with others to carpool to chapter events and to the coast for surf trips. Thanks to the help of chapter member Collin, we’re releasing a forum to help everyone set up carpools:

Snag waves and clean the beach this weekend
Keybox Road, Saturday, June 6, 11am
Come to Keybox Road in Delaware for our first beach cleanup of 2015 this Saturday! If interested, some of us will stay at the state campground at Indian River Inlet, surf on Saturday AM, and then clean our adopted beach at Keybox Road mid-day. Bring a tent, longboard and sunscreen! Or, just show up for the cleanup on Saturday.
