What’s Happening Today – February 22, 2019
Today on DelmarvaLife –
Leslie Passano, of Trappe, is here to tell us her incredible story of when her dog Cedar went missing in below freezing temperatures.
Leshell Dennis, the Author of “Woman Journey, from Pain to Purpose.” is here to talk about how she overcame drug addiction, physical and verbal abuse, prison, living in the streets. Now, she’s using those past hardships to help other women find purpose.
Ocean City is one of the most exciting places to visit on Delmarva. That’s why the folks at the Hyatt Place Ocean City/Oceanfront say—Why would you wait for summer when you could be enjoying it all right now? DelmarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield visited the hotel to learn more.
We are also on The Mid South Audio Stage With “The Dead Pens!”
