On the beautiful late summer evening of September 7, the City of Milford hosted the monthly Sussex County Association of Towns (SCAT) dinner meeting at the Shawnee Country Club. Milford was well represented by members of City Council, the Police Department, the Mayor, and the Town Manager. The group of over 100 Sussex County residents packed into the room at the Country Club to enjoy fine food, fellowship with one another, and to share information about their respective towns.

SCAT is a county-wide organization comprised of individuals representing the interests of the various towns and cities in Sussex County. The dinner meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month in rotating locations. With locales as widespread as Milford’s Country Club to Mangoes in Bethany Beach, participants have the opportunity to travel to different places to sample what each town has to offer. The dinner meeting always begins with the Pledge of Allegiance and an invocation, and then features a guest speaker, followed by relevant news and announcements by the leadership of SCAT.

The members hail from all walks of life, including town leadership and legislators, engineers, governmental agencies, and private industry. It is a great opportunity for us and our neighbors to network, form partnerships, and collaborate about common problems that may be facing our hometowns.

The highlight of the evening was the rousing and impassioned message by guest speaker John Moore. Mr. Moore is the Vice President of Resource Development for the United Way of Delaware. He explained his passion to the local community, and how he has been affected personally by some recent tragic events in Sussex County, such as the murder of Chad Spicer. The mission of the United Way is to “Live United”, which translates into trying to advance the common good. The United Way focuses on bettering income, health and education in order to eliminate the most difficult social problems facing the needs of Delaware residents in all three counties.

All attendees seemed to enjoy the meeting and are looking forward to next month’s dinner.
