Warren Golde honored by the Delaware River and Bay Authority
DRBA honored the work of Warren Golde by issuing a proclamation that the Gateway Garden will herein be known as the Warren S. Golde
Gateway Garden. DRBA announced the action during a small ceremony at the Lewes-Cape May Ferry Terminal Friday, December 20.
The event was attended by Ted Becker, Mayor of Lewes; Fred Beaufait, Deputy Mayor; Dennis Reardon and Bonnie Osler,
members of the City Council. Presenting the Proclamation to Warren was Tom Cook, Director of the Delaware River and Bay Authority.
Also in attendance were Jim Ford and Veronica Faust, the two Delaware commissioners from Sussex County. Several members of the
Lewes in Bloom Board were also in attendance as was Jane Ellan, Warren’s wife.
The honor was a complete surprise to Warren, but as many of the officials in attendance stated, it was definitely well-deserved.
A larger ceremony will be held in the spring when a sign will be installed at the garden. At that time, expect a big celebration!

First LIB Scholarship awarded to Blaise Hohl
What an Honor
On May 30, 2019, Judy Hanson and Dennis Crawford had the honor of presenting the first Lewes in Bloom scholarship to Cape Henlopen High School senior, Blaise Hohl. Blaise has been accepted at the University of Delaware and is planning to pursue a degree in horticulture.
The Lewes in Bloom scholarship is not a free handout. We require the recipient to perform several gardening and other Lewes in Bloom support tasks. Blaise worked in the herb garden, the corner boxes and Mary Vessels Park. He also assisted at the Christmas Market, attended the breakfast for the International Competition judges and also made the bus trip to the Philadelphia Flower show.
Judy and Dennis are looking forward to meeting a new candidate chosen by the school for the next scholarship award.
