What’s Happening Today – August 26, 2019
Today on DelmarvaLife:
It’s hard to believe it’s been ten years since Georgetown Patrolman Chad Spicer was shot and killed in the line of duty during a traffic stop. It was a crime that rattled all of Delmarva, and one that has inspired this community to keep Chad’s legacy alive. That’s exactly what continues to happen, thanks to the Chad Spicer Memorial Foundation. We sit down with Chad’s Mother, Ruth Ann Spicer, along with Foundation Volunteer Anna West, to hear how the Chad Spicer Memorial Foundation helps others.
Author Virginia Davis, of Berlin, has a way with words. She’ll tell us about her most recent book, The Mending. It’s a compilation of poems and it centers around her journey from heartache and hopelessness, to healing. Virginia tells us more about the inspiration for the book.
Organizers are gearing up for an event that’s going to fill downtown Salisbury with sights, sounds, and delicious smells – the National Folk Festival! Local Manager for the National Folk Festival, Caroline O’Hare, tells us what’s new this year. Here’s a hint – a lot!
William Shakespeare is easily considered one of the greatest poets and playwrights to have ever lived. His works have influenced language, arts, and literature for centuries – and it doesn’t look like that’s going to end anytime soon. There’s a group on Delmarva dedicated to celebrating William Shakespeare, and they do that through free, open-to-the-public performances. We’ll learn more about the Shore Shakespeare Company, and even see two members perform on the Mid South Audio Stage!
