Today on DelmarvaLife –
As a child (or adult), did you ever dream of having some one-on-one time with the big guy? You try so hard to catch him every Christmas Eve….you set up cameras, you leave cookies, but for some reason, you can’t even catch a glimpse. Well, we have a gift for you – we’re about to tell you how you can talk to the big guy and get all your questions answered, straight from The North Pole. We talk with Amy Wood, Director of The Raymond A. Wood Foundation, about how a “Zoom with Santa.” To sign up, click here.
The message from Lewes to COVID-19? No. No, you will not steal Christmas joy. No, you will not take away the twinkle on the trees.

Worcester County’s Drug Treatment Court Program is celebrating its’ 15th anniversary this month. It’s a program designed to offer treatment to those committing crimes due to substance abuse. The program is just one way area agencies are coming together to make sure those with addiction have ways to recovery and stay out of the justice system. In today’s, “Wellness Wednesday”, we’re learning about another program…the Opioid Response Strategy.
If you’re a baseball fan, then you probably know what the Cambridge Canners, Crisfield Crabbers, Salisbury Indians, Laurel Blue Hens, Pocomoke City Salamanders, and Parksley Spuds all had in common. But, how can you tell others? More importantly, show others? We talk with Eric Day, a student at Salisbury University about an interactive baseball map detailing the rich history of baseball on Delmarva. To view the map, click here.
It’s our favorite day. And as we look back through the years when we helped our friends at Spicer Brothers Construction surprise the many winners of Delmarva’s Neediest Roof Contest, we can’t but smile and think of all those moments that just warmed the heart. How can it not? A new, free roof for those who need it most, just in time for Christmas? It’s what movies are made of. 102-5 WBOC’s Corey Phoebus surprises the 2020 winner.
