What’s Happening Today – December 7, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
Today, we celebrate Delaware becoming the first state to ratify the constitution. It’s Delaware Day and the Delaware Shoppes in Dover, play a significant role in that moment in history.
If you’re looking for one of the things that makes Delmarva stand out during the holiday, we’ve got just the thing. The Crab Pot Christmas Tree in Crisfield. We talk with Buddy Ward, President of the Crisfield Chamber of Commerce, about all the “cool” things to check out in the Somerset County Town.
Monday’s are for fighting crime and Lt. Tim Robinson of The Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office is here to tell us how to do it. Plus, it might lead to some extra cash in your pocket!
We’re helping you sweeten up the holiday season and for that, we take you to France. Better yet, you don’t even have to step foot in a plane. Grab those passports and pack those bag-uettes. We’re off to La Baguette Bakery and Catering in Dover. Plus, we’re tying in Delaware Day as Anita and Chef Ludovic Bezy make bread and discuss the history of French settlers in Delaware.
Christmas music has a funny way of getting you right into the holiday spirit. Especially the classics. Today, we’re going back to about 6 years ago when the Southern Delaware Chorale performed in Historic Studio D. It’s today’s “Monday Memory.”
