Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs to offer 21 special events during September 2014
The Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs will be sponsoring 21 special events during the month of September 2014 at the museums of the state of Delaware. Six of the events will explore the First State’s rich Native-American heritage and culture. A schedule of all 21 special programs is listed at . For additional information, call 302-744-5055. According to Nena Todd, site supervisor for the state’s downtown Dover museums, September is a time for Native-American people to return to their homelands. Traditionally, the coming of cooler weather provided a signal for native peoples to transition from their summer hunting and fishing grounds to more secure winter lodging. This tradition of seasonal travel continues in today’s Native-American communities with September serving as a time when families come together and communities celebrate their heritage. One of Delaware’s most well-known Native-American celebrations is the annual Nanticoke Indian Pow-Wow that will take place this year on Sept. 6 and 7. Administered by the Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs, the six museums of the state of Delaware—the New Castle Court House Museum, the John Dickinson Plantation, the First State Heritage Park Welcome Center and Galleries, The Old State House, the Johnson Victrola Museum and the Zwaanendael Museum—tell the story of the First State’s contributions to the history and culture of the United States. Through displays, exhibits and special programs, the museums explore how the state's distinctive physical environment, in combination with the people who came to live there, gave Delaware an identity that is different from any other place.

Delaware Good Sam
Time: 8:00am- 11:00pm Location: DE State Fairgrounds, Harrington, DE Description: Delaware Good Sam Club Announces Annual Camping Event Delaware Good Sam Club announces their annual 2014 Delaware State Samboree Camping Event at the Delaware State Fairgrounds in Harrington, Delaware on September 5, 6, and 7, 2014 with an early bird day on September 4. What is a Samboree? Once a year, the Good Sam Chapters of Delaware gather together in Harrington, Delaware, at the Delaware State Fairgrounds, and host a weekend of fun, fellowship and camaraderie. Campers do not have to be a Good Sam member to attend. The camping event is open to all campers, whether they camp in a tent, travel trailer, fifth wheel, motorhome, etc. The weekend includes: entertainment, seminars, games, food, a flea/craft market, a tour, ice cream social, morning hospitalities and camping. In addition there are also raffles, crafts, contests, vendors and much more! What is Good Sam? The story behind The Good Sam Club is four decades in the making. The club takes its name from the term “Good Samaritan” and came to life in 1966 when cartoonist E.C. Bilsland, Jr. sketched a dark-haired character with a broad smile and a halo to personify the spirit of Good Samaritan RVers. A group of RVers began placing a Good Samaritan sticker on the bumper of their trailer while on the road to let fellow RV families know that they were there to help. The idea spread through RV parks and campgrounds across the US and Canada until the club developed into what it is today. The goal remains the same as it did in 1966: to make RVing safer and more enjoyable, and save members money through Club-endorsed benefits and services. The Good Sam Club is now over 1 million RVing families strong and growing! Our Members have fun, stop to help one another and meet our responsibilities to the environment, highways and parks. We have over 2000 active chapters throughout the United States and Canada. These chapters support hundreds of local charities as well as participating in civic projects such as Adopt A Highway, National Clean Up Day, Habitat For Humanity and many more. But good deeds are not all we do. We also have fun. Each year thousands of Good Samer’s attend gatherings we call “Samborees” which are held in most States and include activities such as seminars, entertainment, craft classes, ice cream socials, dinners and other events which make these a festive and worthwhile piece of Americana. The Delaware State Samboree has a host of fun themed activities planned including Theme Costume Contest, RV Decorating Contest, Theme Basket Contest. Several other activities including games like Bean Bag Baseball, a Friday morning tour to local Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Ice Cream Social, morning hospitality, games Friday night, Craft & Flea Market, Chinese Auction Saturday, Ladies Social, Seminars, Samgo, optional dinner Saturday evening catered by Smith’s Family Restaurant, doorprizes.

Vocalist Flo Hudak ties all the players together with her soulful stylings and dynamic stage presence. When it comes to entertaining, Flo always knows how to kick it up several notches! At home with any style of music, she can wail with the best of them or hush the room with a sweet ballad.
