What’s Happening Today – Aug. 22, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
The Hazel Outdoor Discovery Center’s “Get Outdoors Day” is Sat. Aug. 26 from 10 am-2 pm in Eden, Md. President of the Maryland Bowhunters Society Eastern Shore, Lou Compton, tells us all about the upcoming event and shows Jimmy and Lisa how to shoot a bow and arrow.
With the temperatures outside still being in the mid 80’s and even the 90’s some days, we still have the air conditioning running in our homes. That could mean a strain on the electric bill, but it doesn’t have to. Delaware Electric Co-Op‘s Jeremy Tucker shares some simple tips with us to save energy.
Many people use their porch in the summer when the temperatures outside are warm, but why not use your porch year-round? Bill Whaley with Porch Protection Systems tells us how we can make that happen. Bill tested his year-round theory and shows us how even in the winter, his porch is an enjoyable place.
We’re nearing the end of August, but there is still plenty of summer left to celebrate. Carrie Samis with Main Street Princess Anne tells us all about “Summer on Somerset.” The family-friendly event takes place each Thursday in August from 4 pm-7 pm. Pets are allowed as well! There will also be food truck, vendors, and live music each week.
The school year is upon us so we decided to bring some teachers to Historic Studio D to tell us about the importance of parent-teacher communication throughout the school year. Somerset County’s Teacher of the Year, Sarah Perdue, and Wicomco County’s Teacher of the Year, Christen Tacka, join us on the couches.
We hear it all the time – breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But when school starts and everyone is rushing in the morning, breakfast is easily forgotten. Lisa steps into the DelmarvaLife kitchen to show us some healthy breakfast options that are simple and can be taken on-the-go.
