Bunky and Pat Naugle, along with Peggy and Wayne Moore, traveled to Germany and Austria for a concert tour with the Chesapeake Chorale, which consists of 44 singers. The group arrived at the Frankfurt airport, then traveled to Rothenburg for their first concert. Next, they traveled to Augsburg, then on to Munich, where they sang at St. Michael’s Cathedral. In Sussen, they toured the Ludwig Castle and, in Salzburg, Austria, visited the home where Mozart was born. They then traveled to Vienna, where the group sang at St. Stephan Cathedral and had the opportunity to attend a Mozart concert. It was back to Germany for an elegant gourmet dinner in Scloss Suschl, in the foothills of the Alps. The last stop was in Heidelberg before returning to Frankfurt to board their plane bound for home. According to Pat, the group had a wonderful time and the scenery was beautiful. Dr. Douglas Smith of Salisbury, director of Chesapeake Chorale, did a great job of planning the 12-day trip.

Coffee house starts reading group
Strange Brews Coffee and Tea House, Delmar, is hosting a “read to me” program for children. The program is a way to introduce younger children to the pastime of reading and encourage them to develop an awareness of books that will last them into their adult lives, said CEO Joseph Parish. The next session is scheduled for July 21, 2 p.m., at the coffee house, 18B N. Pennsylvania Ave. “We like to give back something to a community that supports us,” said Parish. Strange Brews supports several community related activities, among them the Delmar Elementary School PTA and the Miss Delmar/Delaware contestants. Strange Brews features live entertainment and serves a variety of coffees. Information is available by e-mail at or by telephone at (302) 846-2870.
