The final morning at Bethany Beach was full of whimsy and fun. Magician “Tom Foolery” entertained kids and adults alike at Dicken’s Magic Parlour. He performed sleight-of-hand trick as well as hilarious one-liners.
“The jokes are free… and non-refundable!” he said.
LPHOH would like to thank Tom Foolery, known by day as Jay Read, for doing his show with a broken ankle! We would also like to thank owner Rich Bloch and manager Cheryl for hosting and serving us.
A potluck lunch was organized by coordinator Ann Raskauskaus and served in the Millville Fire Department. A special thanks to Paul Sterling for connecting us to this venue to be out of the rain..
“In the afternoon, our ladies were treated to a second “survivors only” time: a meet and greet with entertainer Harry Andersen back at the Dicken’s Magic Parlour.
“This little piggie is going to my stomach,” said participant Bernie Spaulding.
The participants had a final meeting while their kids played with our volunSTARS. It was a time to reflect on the week and enjoy being all together one last time. The ladies and their spouses talked about how grateful they were to have this week to relax outside of their typical schedules, and the wonderful opportunity to meet other breast cancer survivors like themselves. Then the entire group assembled for a photo and said their goodbyes. It was a bittersweet night, but the families appreciated the time they’ve had together. LPHOH would like to thank the volunSTARS, our coordinators, directors, and the local community for creating the fourth successful retreat in Bethany Beach!
