What’s Happening Today – July 16, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
There’s a plethora of words to use when describing these last few months. There’s many emotions and feelings, but I think there’s one that most people can probably relate to – loneliness. Now, imagine feeling social isolation even before the pandemic began. A tough situation just got a little tougher. And it’s one many people living with Alzheimer’s Disease are navigating right now. Today, we talk with Constituent Events Manager from the Alzheimer’s Association, Leslie Zimmerman, to find out about their social engagement programs and how family members can get involved.
High school students spend those four crucial years of high school doing everything they can to rack up accolades for their college applications. But, in light of COVID, accessing some of those resources has become a challenge. For example, extra-curricular activities? How can they participate if everything’s shut down? Today, we talk with Darren Nelson, Founder of the Delmarva College Mentorship Program and Lead Organizer, Brian Min, to find out more about the program.
We all probably know what an electrical box looks like. While, it is an essential piece of equipment, it’s not exactly pleasing to the eye. In Salisbury, that’s about to change.

Today, we talk with Jamie Heater, Executive Director of the Salisbury Arts and Entertainment District, to find out where these boxes are being painted and how to sign up.
There’s two little guys – who during their short time on earth – had and continue to have, an enormous impact. Wyatt Shipe and Vincent Boog were both born with congenital heart defects. While their brave battles ended, both of their legacies continue on. Today we talk with Wyatt and Vincent’s Mothers, Jen Shipe and Chelsea Boog, to learn about “Thankful Thursdays” and warrior bags.
We are at the peak of harvest season for some of our favorite vegetables. This is the best time to pick up produce, especially at your local farmer’s market. For local seniors, produce will not only easily available, but also more affordable. One of those farmer markets is open right now – the Capital City Farmer’s Market in Dover. Today, we talk with Tina Bradbury, Economic Development and Operation Manager for the Downtown Dover Partnership, to find out about some of the changes they’re making to the market and programs their offering to local seniors.
Now, more than ever, we all need something that gives us a chance to escape. For some that’s a two week vacation, starting a craft club or riding the Inlet Eye at Trimper’s Rides in Ocean City. But for others, sometimes all it takes is a couple of hours diving into different story. Good news for those looking for summer entertainment.. Clear Space in Rehoboth Beach is offering three different productions, happening now through August, that you’re definitely going to want to see. Katie recently visited to learn all about their future productions and meet some of the cast.
