What’s Happening Today – April 15, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
In times like these, it’s always nice to see familiar faces. Jim Duffy, of Cambridge, is one of them and his knowledge of Delmarva is extensive. Today, he talks to us about steamboats of the past.
Lisa and WBOC’s Charles Paparella strike up a conversation about friendship. Charlie also performs a song on the subject.
It should would be nice to step foot into a library, but it’s good to know that there are plenty of library resources available. We’ll explore some of them available at the Wicomico Public Libraries.
The Salvation Army needs your help with supplies as they work to feed families on the Lower Eastern Shore. Find out how you can be a part of the effort.
PRMC would like to thank our friends at Emmanuel Church who are leading this PPE drive for our healthcare team.
In order to provide needed medical supplies to health care providers and first responders during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Emmanuel Church is partnering with Peninsula Regional Medical Center to host donation drop-off locations for healthcare needed supplies at the following locations:
• Emmanuel Crisfield: 22 E. Chesapeake Ave. Crisfield, MD 21817 – Tuesday April 21 and Thursday April 23, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
• Emmanuel Fruitland: 620 W. Main St. Fruitland, MD 21826 – Tuesday April 21 and Thursday April 23, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
• Emmanuel Salisbury: 217 Beaglin Park Dr. Salisbury, MD 21804 – Tuesday, April 21 through Friday, April 24, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Those who wish to donate items on the supply list should have the items in their trunk. Drive up to the drop-off location and stay in your car. Open your trunk when directed and a volunteer will remove the items for you. A second volunteer will collect your name and information so that you can be thanked for your donation.
List of supplies being requested:
• Unused face and surgical masks, especially N95 masks
• Eye protectors: safety goggles, safety glasses, clear face shields

As you trade your travel plans for time at home, you might be running out of fun activities. So, let us help. Today we chat with our friend and author Jim Duffy. He regales us with tales of travel on the Delmarva Peninsula from the steamboat days of yore.
While taking a trip to your local library isn’t an option right now, a virtual visit is still possible. We chat with Wicomico Public Library marketing and communications manager Sam Gibson about digital and online resources available to residents and students.
As the Salvation Army works to meet needs across our region, they’re in need of help as well. We find out about how they’re making a difference in the lives of local families, and how you can support their efforts.
