VIA Honored with Proclamation

The mayor of Rehoboth Beach, DE, honored the Village Improvement Association by proclaiming that Monday, March 20, 2023, would be Village Improvement Association (VIA) Day.  The proclamation was in honor of Women’s History Month and to recognize and celebrate the achievements the women have made over the club’s 114 years serving the City of Rehoboth and surrounding area.

The formal proclamation was declared on Friday, March 17 and a reception honoring VIA members was held at the VIA clubhouse on Monday, March 20.  Stan Mills, Mayor of Rehoboth Beach, several City Commissioners, GFWC Delaware State President Patricia Rodriguez, and GFWC Delaware Sussex County Vice President Mindy Goss attended the reception and participated in the celebration.
