Connecting with Your Community Workshop

Members and staff of Delaware’s historic commissions and staff of the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs and Preservation Delaware gathered at the Biggs Museum in Dover on Saturday, November 17 for a workshop on how historic commissions can effectively communicate and work with their communities.  The workshop entitled Connecting with Community: Communication, Education and Outreach was offered by Preservation Delaware and the City of Lewes.  Presenters Karen Theimer Brown, Director of the Maryland Association of Historic District Commissions and Elizabeth Beckley with Preservation Maryland offered a very informative and thought-provoking session. The workshop was part of a series of ongoing training provided to Delaware’s historic commissions funded by a Historic Preservation Fund Grant that Lewes qualifies for as a Certified Local Government.  Following the morning session, many of the attendees gathered at 33 West for a networking lunch.
