What’s Happening Today – August 9, 2016
Today on DelmarvaLife:
School will be starting before we know it! Getting your child prepared for the first day is about more than buying a bunch of new stuff. Somerset County Teacher of the Year, Kolby Noble and Teacher of the Year for Wicomico County, Christy Briggs, join us to tell us more about back-to-school preparation.
For some families on Delmarva, buying all new school supplies and clothes is not possible. Jimmy chats with Armah Dashiell, of “Bless the Child,” and Raymond Farrare with “Lost Kingz,” a back-to-school sneaker drive.
No one ever wants to see kids or young adults get themselves in trouble, but sometimes people do stumble in life and make some mistakes. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t bounce back and get your life back on track. There’s a group here on Delmarva that can help with that. Co-founders Robert Shrieves and Tara Barrett, and Ethan Wright who is a forge youth member, join us to tell us more about “The Forge Youth and Family Academy.” The goal of the group is to provide a drug, alcohol, bully, judgment, and worry free space for children of parents who have made bad decisions. They have a 24-hour hotline where people can call if they need to vent or find themselves in unsafe situations, 443-365-0007. People can get involved on Friday nights at 6:30 pm for youth ministry.
In this digital age, it’s easier than ever to communicate with one another. You can send a text, email, or even a Snapchat! But is this technology the best way to communicate in certain situations, such as sending messages of condolences or support? Grace Foxwell Murdock of Professional Grace joins us to tell us more about the relevance of good old fashioned handwritten notes.
