Deltaville Needs Your Help
Despite extensive damage to the Deltaville Community Center Building, the DCA board was able to hold their monthly
meeting in the auditorium on April 21. Approximately 50 residents and officials attended the meeting that focused on rebuilding. Billy Norton and John Koedel are in charge of assessing damages and organizing a repair and rebuild program. The DCA board decided that this catastrophe is an opportunity to rebuild our facility better and stronger than ever. Rather than repair what was damaged, the DCA has decided to bring the building up to code with full handicap access. Although the property was most certainly under insured, the DCA hopes the community will pledge additional funds for the rebuild. The Fishing Bay Yacht Club and the Deltaville Maritime Museum each pledged $1,000 as seed money for a campaign entitled “The Deltaville 100.” Hopes are that other organizations and individual will follow suit and donate $1,000 to the rebuild campaign.
Other fund raisers include “I Love Deltaville” t-shirts, available at Tee’s T-shirts and throughout Deltaville at various fund raising events for $12. All proceeds go to the DCA. Several other fund raisers were proposed for the months ahead. Check this site and the Southside Sentinel for the latest information.
The Deltaville Community Association’s two goals are to have the pool open by June 1 if possible, but no later than June 15 when school lets out and to have a full-blown Heritage Day celebration on July 2nd.
