What’s Happening Today – Aug. 3, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Lending a hand to those brave men and women who didn’t blink an eye when it came to serving our country. We’re sitting down with members of the “Respect, Pride and Generosity Motorcycle Club.” They’ll tell us about the group’s “bike night,” held every Friday night at Oasis Bar ‘N’ Grill in Whaleyville. Proceeds support homeless veterans on Delmarva.
There’s also a real need for school supplies for children on Delmarva. Imagine a child walking into a classroom with nothing – no paper, no pens, no book bag. It happens all the time on Delmarva, so our next Rising Tide event will work to meet that need. Rising Tide is a collaborative effort between WBOC and Sherwood Automotive to help meet the needs of non-profit agencies on Delmarva. We’ll explain how you can lend a hand to help our local students.
The 10th Annual Ocean Pines Chamber of Commerce Flounder Tournament. DelmarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield stopped by Ocean Pines for an early “dive in” on all the fun.
Each year, over 400,000 people are injured in crashes that involved a driver who was distracted in some way. It only takes one time to cause irreparable damage or damage that can follow you for years down the road. Thad Truitt with Nationwide Insurance, based out of Lewes, joins us in the studio today to tell us about distracted driving.
“Ash’iz Tha Rebirth” of Berlin is a spoken word poet. She wrote a book of poetry titled, “A Piece of Me Brings Peace to Me.” She talks about her book and recites a poem from her book.
There’s a group of men on Delmarva taking the three words – respect, pride and generosity – and putting them into action. They call themselves, the “Respect, Pride and Generosity Motorcycle Club.” Club President, Chuck West, and Club Vice President, George Simon, join us in the studio to tell us about an upcoming benefit ride.
