What’s Happening Today – August 8, 2016
Today on DelmarvaLife:
The countdown is on and the kids will be heading back to school before you know it! Are you ready?
Sean gives us a few ideas to help you get ready for school using items you probably already have around the house. We use different colored tape to personalize pens, make bookmarks out of ribbon and paperclips, and use chalkboard paint for the lids of lunch containers.
Delmarva has some breathtaking views. Shaina Adkins, director of special events at the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art in Salisbury, Md. tells us about an event where you can show off pictures you may have taken of these beautiful Delmarva sights. The Art in Nature Photo Festival is open to professional, amateur, and youth photographers. First place winning photos will be exhibited in the welcome gallery of the museum for up to three months. The Art in Nature Photo Festival is August 12-14. The guest speaker this year is Cam Miller and she will be speaking on Friday, August 12, 6-9 pm.
There’s a lot that goes into growing a beard. Tommy with the Bearded Men’s Society of Ocean City has been growing his beard for almost three years now! Rob Dunne, president and founder of the Bearded Men’s Society of Ocean City, tell us about the society and the volunteer work they do in the community. “Beards, beer, and volunteer. We like beards, we like beer, and we like to volunteer,” Rob says. The Second Annual Beard and Mustache Competition is Friday, September 9, 6-9 pm at Pit and Pub on 28th St. in Ocean City, Md. The competition benefits Diakonia, which provides emergency and transitional housing, emergency food services, counseling, and assistance for its guests.
It’s that time of year where local produce is a must-have. Whether it’s watermelon, sweet corn, or tomatoes, you can get all of that fresh produce and more at How Sweet It Is. Brent Malone with How Sweet It Is in Eden, Md. tells us that even though they had to plant later in the spring because of all the rain, the result is a bountiful harvest.
Experts say digging accidents cause tens of thousands of service disruptions and dozens of injuries each year. Calling 8-1-1 first can help you avoid that. It’s a free call and avaible 24/7. Chief Executive Officer of Delaware Electric Cooperative, Bill Andrew, joins us to talk about the dangers of digging into a utility line. “Every digging project, no matter how large or small, warrants a call to 8-1-1,” Bill says. “Installing a mailbox, building a deck and planting a tree or garden are all examples of digging projects that should only begin after calling 8-1-1.”
Lt. Tim also tells us about a recent most wanted capture and has a new list of most wanted for us. See today’s Most Wanted Monday here.
You might know them from the WBOC News, but today, we get to know Todd and Jackie Karli off the anchor desk. They chat about living in Berlin, Md., their kids preparing for new schools, and how friendly the people are here on Delmarva. They also mentioned that many people have been giving them recommendations of places to visit and restaurants to eat at here on Delmarva. Send your favorite place to visit and favorite place to eat on Delmarva to firstname.lastname@example.org and the Karli’s will add it to their “Delmarva Must-Do” list.
Hope you enjoy the show!
