Bulk Trash Collection:

It has been our experience that many residents will take this opportunity to clean garages and yards, while others will gather the attic treasures that have accumulated over the years and are now expendable. (This is not for yard waste pickup)

Rental License:

Senior Care:

Many seniors are unaware of the available care options and programs that can help maintain their independence and quality of life.   Visit https://www.caring.com/senior-living/assisted-living/delaware, a free resource that provides comprehensive information on topics like financial support, organizations, and available care options that are in every city in Delaware that can help senior citizens stay connected with their community. 


Village Volunteers:

Village Volunteers is a nonprofit organization the enables older adults to remain safe and independent in their homes.

 The Village to Village program has been successful in other communities on the Delmarva Peninsula like Bethany Beach, Ocean View, and Lewes as well as communities all over the US and England. Because of the interest expressed by some Fenwick residents, we are sending this survey to the Fenwick Community.

These results will be sent to an independent exploratory committee unaffiliated with Council or other Town officials. Please note that the Village program is a separate and independent entity. While the Town Council is not officially endorsing this program, Town officials thought it would be helpful to share this information with those who might be interested.

Any additional questions should be directed to info@villagevolunteer.org. 


Thank you,
