Officials will gather this morning (Monday, Aug. 25) at 10 a.m. at Silver Lake to dedicate a marker commemorating the history of Silver Lake and Lake Comegys.
The dedication ceremony for a new Delaware state historical marker commemorating the history of Silver Lake and Lake Comegys is scheduled for today at 10 a.m.
Stephen Marz, Delaware Public Archives director, will preside over the dedication. Representative Pete Schwartzkopf, Speaker of the House, and Senator Ernie Lopez, are the legislative sponsors for the marker. They, along with David Small, DNREC secretary are scheduled to speak at the dedication.
This is only the second state historical marker in Delaware dedicated to a natural resource and the only one in the Rehoboth area. The ceremony will take place at the state’s bird refuge on Silver Lake’s shoreline, at the south end of the Silver Lake Bridge, at the end of Bayard Avenue, where it then becomes Silver Lake Drive. See the Save Our Lakes Alliance 3 (SOLA3) website for details on the lakes.
