Bring your quarters and your friends and join Worcester County Humane Society on Saturday, November 4th for their Fall Quarter Auction benefiting the many homeless animals at the no kill shelter. The event will be held at the American Legion Post #166 (2308 Philadelphia Avenue/24th St., Ocean City). Doors open at 12:30 p.m. to preview items that will be bid on and the auction will run from 1:30-4:30 p.m. Many donated items from local businesses will be auctioned along with some well known vendor items. Enjoy home made desserts, 50/50 raffle, golden paddle, money board, and raffle baskets. American Legion kitchen will also be open for lite fare and cash bar. Advance tickets for the event are $7 and include one paddle and a door prize ticket. Tickets at the door, if available, will be $10. Parking is available and the side entrance should be used to enter the building. For those who cannot attend the quarter auction but would like to make a donation, please consider donating to the shelter’s “Giving Wall”. Select a donation dollar amount from $1 to $200 and donate that amount. Your donation card will be displayed on the “Giving Wall” and entered to win a $200 cash prize! Cash, check or credit cards will be accepted. Businesses that sponsor the “Giving Wall” and donate $100 to $200 are eligible to win a catered lunch for 10 employees. The winning number will be drawn at the November 4th Quarter auction. There will also be numbers sold for four different raffle boards. The raffle boards have prizes such as a 2-night stay at Dunes Manor, a Women’s Coaster Bike, a 2-night stay at La Quinta Inn and a Grizzly 40 quart Cooler among others. Call Mary Martinez 410-382-2661 to make a donation for the “Giving Wall” or to purchase raffle board numbers. You do not need to be present to win. The shelter is still looking for donations from businesses for the Quarter Auction. Popular items are $25-$50 gift cards to restaurants or shops, and gift baskets with various items totaling $25-$100. What exactly is a Quarter Auction, one might ask? Each item up for bid is displayed for all to see. The auctioneer gives a brief description of the item, noting how many quarters will be required for bidding (one quarter for a $25 item, two quarters for $50 item etc.). Guests then give their bids, raise their paddles, and when all quarters are collected, the auctioneer draws one, numbered ball from a container. The number on the bidding paddle that matches the ball drawn will determine the winner of each item. “For just quarters you could win many wonderful items ranging from $25-$100 in value,” says Mary Martinez, event coordinator. “The quarter auction is a really great way for everyone to have some fun, win some great items all while supporting the animals at our shelter.” For tickets, questions or to donate please call Mary Martinez at 410-382-2661. This event is for participants 18 and older.

House Bill 1- Mandatory Paid Leave- The Impacts and Implications on your Business/Workforce As you may be aware, the legislature passed the Mandatory Paid Leave Bill this past session. This would essentially require all businesses with 15 or more employees to provide paid leave to employees working 12 or more hours per week. For seasonal businesses, accrual of leave commences upon hire, but may not be used until after 106 days of employment, however many seasonal businesses have staff longer than this period, which would allow them to earn and use leave at the end of the season which is often a very difficult time for employers to stay fully staffed. Due to the severe impact on small business in Maryland as well as the strict sanctions for non-compliance, the Governor did veto this bill. However, there is a very strong chance that that veto may be overridden during the 2018 legislative session. We are working diligently to sustain the veto- but we need your feedback on how this would personally impact your business! During this session our expert panel will cover: - The provisions of HB1 - The impact of HB1 on businesses - What would businesses like to change? - Prospects of a veto override - What you can do to help sustain the Governors Veto and support a more reasonable bill For more information and to take action on the effort to sustain the veto, please visit http://www.savemdjobs.com Please join of for this important session! Continental breakfast will be provided.

Lewes Historical Society to Host Nanticoke Dancers November 17 at Margaret H. Rollins Center Tradition. It’s a word that drives many cultures, many people. Learn about the Nanticoke dance and music and hear a brief history of Delaware’s Nanticoke People’s traditions that have survived and even changed through generations. The evening’s events will include an explanation of the significance of the native regalia and the meaning of dances to be performed. According to Nanticoke Councilman Herman Jackson “Many people look at our regalia and think ‘costume.’ Our tribal wear reflects tradition and also may have origins in things handed down from generations before us. Native Americans don’t wear costumes. Our regalia has deep and traditional meaning for each of us.” Join The Nanticoke Indian Association for a discussion and demonstration on "Nanticoke Dance," on Friday, November 17, at 7:30 pm at the Community Room at the Margaret H. Rollins Community Room at 101 Adams Avenue, Lewes. Admission is free and no reservations are required. The Nanticoke dancers will perform to the rhythm of a tribal drum played by tribal singers and drummers. The Lewes Historical Society is proud of its continuing tradition of hosting the Nanticokes and sharing their history of American Indian culture at the Society’s programs. Their previous presentations and traditional performances have been met with enthusiasm by both tribal members and their audiences. This presentation is The Lewes Historical Society’s November “Speaker Series.” Each month between September and May the Society offers educational and entertaining programs that explore the history of Lewes, the surrounding area, Lewes's unique interaction in the national scene and other related and appealing topics. All of these meetings are open to all members, residents, and visitors of the Lewes community.

The Zwaanendael Museum, located at 102 Kings Highway in Lewes, Del., will celebrate Dutch-American Heritage Day on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with a series of Dutch-inspired activities that will be both educational and entertaining for every member of the family. Activities will include Dutch crafts, historical information and, at 2 p.m., “An Overview of the Environmental History of the Delmarva Peninsula,” a lecture by historic-site interpreter Alan Roth. Admission to all activities is free and open to the public. Note: The environmental-history lecture will be held on the museum’s 2nd floor (entry via staircase; no elevator). Admission is free but, due to space restrictions, reservations for the lecture are required by calling 302-645-1148 no later than Nov. 17, 2017. Dutch-American Heritage Day commemorates Nov. 16, 1776, the day when the American warship Andrew Doria sailed into the harbor of the Dutch island of St. Eustatius in the West Indies. Only four months before, the United States had declared its independence from Great Britain. The American crew was delighted when the governor of the island, Johannes de Graaf, ordered that his fort's cannons be fired in a friendly salute. This salute, the first ever given by a foreign power to the flag of the United States, was a risky and courageous act. The British, angered by Dutch trade and contraband with the rebellious colonies, seized St. Eustatius a few years later. De Graaf's welcoming “First Salute” was a sign of respect that continues to symbolize the deep ties of friendship that exist between the United States and the Netherlands. Museum open 10 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Free admission but, due to space restrictions, reservations for the lecture are required by calling 302-645-1148 no later than Nov. 17, 2017. The Zwaanendael Museum was built in 1931 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the state's first European colony, Swanendael, established by the Dutch along Hoorn Kill (present-day Lewes-Rehoboth Canal) in 1631. Designed by E. William Martin (architect of Legislative Hall and the Hall of Records in Dover), the museum is modeled after the town hall in Hoorn, the Netherlands, and features a stepped facade gable with carved stonework and decorated shutters. The museum’s exhibits and presentations provide a showcase for Lewes-area maritime, military and social history.

November 18th, 2017 - 1:00 pm The Rehoboth Beach Film Society announces the next play in the exciting series of National Theatre Live screenings. National Theatre Live is a groundbreaking project that presents the best of British theater live from the London stage film to cinemas across the UK and around the world. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of YERMA. The play is based on Spanish playwright Federico Garcia Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. This theater phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and is not to be missed. “The Times” gave it five stars and called it “an extraordinary theatrical triumph.” “The Independent,” said the production was “a shatteringly powerful reinvention of a familiar classic.” The incredible Billie Piper (“Penny Dreadful”) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking climax. She has the capacity to give performances that can stun and exhaust. “The Daily Telegraph” describes her performance as “devastatingly powerful.” (Rated: R, Runtime 2 hours, with no intermission). Screenings will be on Saturday, November 18h at 1:00 pm, Monday, November 20th at 1:00 pm and Tuesday, November 21st at 7:00 pm at the Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive in Dartmouth Plaza (behind the Lewes Wawa). Admission for National Theatre Live is $18 for RBFS members, $20 general admission and $15 for ages 16 and under. Online reservations (www.rehobothfilm.com) are encouraged and may be made with MasterCard or VISA. The mission of the RBFS is promoting cinematic arts and providing education and cultural enrichment for our community. The Film Society sponsors ongoing screenings, special events, and the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival (Nov 3 -12, 2017). Having met all the requirements for best practices in nonprofit management, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society is accredited by the Standards for Excellence Institute®.

Looking for the perfect kick-off for the holiday season? Look no further than Rehoboth’s own Clear Space Theatre! On Sunday, November 19, at 7:00 PM, Clear Space will host Well-Strung, the New York City-based singing string quartet, as the group brings A WELL-STRUNG CHRISTMAS to Rehoboth Beach! The show, developed by Well-Strung producer Mark Cortale and director Richard Jay-Alexander, features the quartet’s unique pop-classical spin on holiday music that ranges from traditional holiday favorites like “Silent Night” and “Sleigh Ride,” to Dolly’s Parton’s “Hard Candy Christmas.” The New York Times has described the group’s unique blend of vocals and strings as “…brilliantly fused pop and classical music.” Don’t miss the beautiful – and beautifully entertaining -- results when Well-Strung brings that same inimitable style to its holiday mash-ups! Wesley Paulson, Clear Space Theatre’s Executive Director, is excited about the group’s return to Rehoboth. “At the end of their Clear Space performance in August, one of the members of Well-strung mentioned they have a holiday show. Given the success of the August concerts, the idea of hosting a return performance was already on my mind, and booking for the holiday show was arranged. I am delighted that Clear Space can host Well-Strung for the Rehoboth premier of A WELL-STRUNG CHRISTMAS, sponsored by our friends at the Atlantic Sands Hotel and Conference Center.” The foursome includes Edmund Bagnell (first violin), Christopher Marchant (second violin), Daniel Shevlin (cello) and Trevor Wadleigh (viola). The group was conceived by producer Mark Cortale and Christ Marchant. Their eclectic appeal has garnered invitations to perform at the Vatican, the House of Blues in New Orleans and a gala for then-President Obama. They have performed with equally widely-ranging artists, including Neil Patrick Harris, Audra McDonald, the San Francisco and New York City Gay Men’s Choruses, and Joe Jonas. Tickets for the November 19 concerts range from $35 to $100 and are available online at www.clearspacetheatre.org or by calling the box office at 302-224-2270.

The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is proud to present the Metropolitan Opera’s live broadcast of Thomas Adès’s harrowing tale, THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL, on Saturday, November 25 at 1:00 PM and Monday, November 27 at 1:00 PM. Please note that screenings are now being held at the Cinema Art Theater and will be shown as a recorded presentation one week after being filmed live. Each performance will be shown on both a Saturday and Monday. Audience members will be allowed to eat and drink concessions sold onsite in the Theater. They will also appreciate the wonderful sound quality, as well as the comfortable seats. The Met: Live in HD season continues with the American premiere of Thomas Adès’s opera, THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL, inspired by the classic Luis Buñuel film of the same name. Hailed by the “New York Times” at it's 2016 Salzburg Festival premiere as “inventive and audacious … a major event,” THE EXTERMINATING ANGEL is a surreal fantasy about a dinner party from which the guests can’t escape. Tom Cairns, who wrote the libretto, directs the new production, and Adès conducts his own adventurous new opera. The large cast includes Amanda Echalaz as Lucia, Joseph Kaiser as Edmundo, Audrey Luna as Leticia, and Christian Van Horn as Julio. At a luxurious mansion, home of Edmundo and Lucía De Nobile, guests are expected for dinner, but strange things are happening. While the guests enjoy their food, the servants disappear one by one. Afterward, the visitors retire to the salon for an evening of music and conversation, but in the morning, they are mysteriously incapable of leaving the room. As days go by and they run out of food and water, panic and madness set in. The army and the police arrive but fail in their attempts to enter the house as conditions inside deteriorate. [Sung in English. Runtime: 2 hours, 40 minutes, with one intermission]. In addition to the opera performance, the HD series features Met opera stars conducting live interviews with cast and/or various production crew members while showing behind-the-scene workings.
