What’s Happening Today – April 30, 2019
Today on DelmarvaLife:
We’re having a conversation that could save a life. We’ll sit down with the mother of Kenny Moore, a young man who took his own life in August 2013. Hear how, through the Kenny Moore Foundation, Lorie Coverdale is working tirelessly to raise awareness of the importance of speaking up about mental health. Lorie will also tell us more about the free event “Comfortable Conversations with Kevin Hines.”
Do you know the importance of a professional network? Mary Angela Baker, the director of the Center for Extended & Lifelong Learning at Salisbury University, tells us how networking can lead to solid connections in the future. She’ll also share a few tips on how to successfully network within your community.
It’s a preview we look forward to each and every year. We’ll touch on just a sliver of the fun you’ll find at this weekend’s 86th annual Dover Days Festival. Eighty-six years and going strong! You can expect re-enactments, hot balloon air rides, Maypole dancing, and more! The Dover Days Festival is one of the must-attend events this weekend!
You could feel it today- the mercury is slowly rising! Pretty soon, the eighty and ninety degree weather will be here to stay, which means you need to answer a very important question – have you signed up your kids yet for summer camp? Crown Sports Center in Fruitland is offering a 13 week camp for kids, and it’s going to be different from camps Crown has held in years past. We had to find out what this is all about, so we sent WBOC’s Heidi Werosta to Crown Sports Center to get the scoop!
Beautiful blooms fill Historic Studio D! Gardening expert Ginny Rosenkranz, with the University of Maryland Extension Office, stops by to discuss plants and flowers that will thrive no matter where you live – whether it’s in the shade or sun.
We’re on the Mid South Audio Stage learning more about paper flowers. Anastasia Jackson, owner of Cookie’s Paper Petals, shows us how she makes these beautiful pieces, and explains how a message she thought was a joke, turned into something she would have never imagined. Aren’t these flowers beautiful?!
