MILLSBORO – Chimes Delaware, one of the largest nonprofit providers for people with disabilities in the state, announced this week a new bocce ball court will be installed at the Irv & Phyllis Levin Employment Center on U.S. 113.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony to commemorate the new court will take place Oct. 13 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the center, located at 28393 Dupont Blvd, Millsboro.

The court is made possible through the generous donations from Corrado Construction and the Knights of Columbus.
