What’s Happening Today – July 7, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Supporting our troops is a big part of our culture and communities here on Delmarva and any opportunity to extend a helping hand and give back helps in so many ways. Gary Porter with American Legion Post 7 in Harrington, Del. stops by the studio to tell us all about an event coming up in August where the community can give back to those who have given so much for us. Operation Comfort Warriors has a 5K coming up on August 12 with registration starting at 8 am and the 5K beginning at 9 am. Check out the American Legion CKRT Post 7’s Facebook page as well for more information.
Breast cancer affects many people here on Delmarva. Luckily, there is a non-profit resource right here on Delmarva that is known for its tremendous outreach to support those brave women battling breast cancer. Director of Public Relations and Marking, Amanda Smith, and Events Coordinator, Kerrie Bunting, join us on the couches to tell us all about Women Supporting Women and big events they have coming up. The Ride for Awareness and Poker Run is July 15 at the Salisbury Elks Lodge #817 and the Pint and Pose, yoga and beer event, is on August 23.
We learn all about one man that took his passion for barbecue and turned it into a business. We sent 102.5 WBOC’s Corey Phoebus to Smokin’ BBQ Grille to get a taste for himself.
We’re rockin’ into the weekend today with the band “Twice Removed.” The band is made up of students from Indian River and Sussex Technical High School. They enjoy playing classical rock music together at local restaurants. Twice Removed has also performed on the Freeman Stage before and on July 27, they are performing there again! Today, they’re performing two covers and you’re going to want to tune in at 5 pm to hear this talented band perform. You can actually get a sneak peek of the band by checking out DelmarvaLife’s Instagram.
