What’s Happening Today – April 12, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife:
April is national Donate Life Month. One of the easiest ways to save a life is simply being an organ donor. Chris Wright, in-house coordinator for the Living Legacy Foundation on the Eastern Shore, joins us to today.

We’ve all heard of Frederick Douglass, the famous abolitionist from Talbot County. You may not have heard of women like Ruth Starr Rose, Grace Brooks, Molly Stewart, and Mary Elizabeth Banning, who also called Talbot County home. But, now you have the opportunity to. Ginny Capute, board member of the Talbot Historical Society and chair of the Women in Talbot County Exhibit joins us to help us learn a bit more about the exhibit, who some of the women are that will be featured, and what she hopes people will take away from their visit. The Women in Talbot County Exhibit will take place Saturday’s now through June 30th from 10 am – 4 pm. For more information, click here!
Accidents occur in all sorts of places, but none seem to conjure as much fear as accidents on the job. Today we talk to our friends at The Law Offices of Tunnell & Raysor to learn more about workman’s compensation and myths many often have about filing a claim.
With Spring weather finally in effect, it’s beginning to look and feel like the perfect time to take your dog to the boardwalk and go on a stroll. Next Saturday, you can do that with other pets and give them a better chance at finding their perfect match. Worcester Humane Society is hosting Boardwalkin’ for Pets and the chair of the event, Heather Bahrami, comes in to explain how the event will benefit Worcester Humane, different contest categories, and how the community’s continued support helps the society. The event will take place April 21st in Ocean City at the Inlet from 8 am – 12 pm. For more information, click here!
If you’re looking for a new way to get in shape, there are many places to cycle with bike trails across the peninsula. But, there are a few things to consider before hitting the trail.

Social Work students at Salisbury University are looking to help those that are less fortunate in the community with a project they call “Bags of Hope.” They are looking to fill these bags with toiletries and other items to be donated to the men, women, and children at the Christian Homeless Shelter in Salisbury.

If you’d like to help, items can be dropped of at the Wicomico Public Library, Salisbury University’s Academic Commons, or you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org for pickup.
