Dear Bethany West Owner:

The Social Committee has once again developed an exciting social calendar for the entire family for the 2018 summer season.

One of the annual offerings is Friday Night Bingo. Everyone is always a winner and no one ever leaves without a prize. This fun-filled weekly program has been coordinated and run by Lonny and Joyce Moore for many years. However, it is time for change and the Social Committee is looking for volunteers to assist in order to keep it going. One possibility is a team of (4) families to cover the one-hour play on rotating Fridays. The Committee is open to all ideas.

Lastly, each event, as they say, takes a village; so the Social Committee is always looking for volunteers to help with sign-up, set-up, clean-up, disbursing and cooking food, etc. Again, it is drawing towards the time when a new mix of owners needs to take over this program and events in order to keep it viable.

If you can help in any way, even at just one event, please contact John Reed, Board member and Social Committee Chair, either by phone (610-331-7142) or email (

From an email from the Assoiation:
As discussed at the Spring Meeting, although the Town of Bethany Beach provides the trash removal and recycling service for the community, the Bethany West Recreation Association does have several sections of the Covenants that address the handling and disposal of trash within Bethany West."<MORE>

Unofficial comments, good turnout at the meeting, The Board member reports were all good. Property Management reported on the past year. All went well. There is concern about the number of owners who vote on Association matters. New Business discussion ranged from stop signs to trash cans.
