SOLA Turns 10!
On August 16, 2014, community leaders, state and local officials, business owners, and many “Friends of SOLA3” gathered to celebrate SOLA3’s 10th Anniversary and to raise funds to accomplish its mission.
SOLA3 announced its gift to the community: a bird identification marker that will be installed on the western shore of Silver Lake. David Small, Secretary of the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, praised SOLA3 for its diligence, perseverance, good research, education, and positive relationships. SOLA3 received Delaware House and Senate tributes, sponsored by Speaker of the House Pete Schwartzkopf and Senator Ernie Lopez. A citation from Governor Markell proclaimed that the day belonged to SOLA3.
Fifteen top area restaurants satisfied the hungry guests with a dazzling array of creative hors d’oeuvres. Fair to say a good time was had by all at this very successful celebration.
