What’s Happening Today — July 7, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
COVID-19 numbers all around the country keep rising. But, what does that mean for Delmarva? Today, we get answers from Peninsula Regional Medical Center’s Chief Quality Officer and Chief of PRMC’s COVID Response team, Chris Snyder.
The past few months have showed us that there are angels all around us. They come in all forms: grocery store workers, doctors, nurses, paramedics, first responders, or volunteers. For many of us, we just want to say thank you to these hardworking men and women, but how? We talk with Tammy Patrick, Director of Advancement with Coastal Hospice, about the “Honor an Angel” program.
It’s no secret that there are tons of angels among us. But today, we’re also talking about angels that might often be forgotten. Our veterans. We talk with Paul Johnston, Organizer of a drive through resource fair, about how the community is giving back to those that gave their all.
This summer has already shaped up to be different than others. Because of COVID, organizations all across Delmarva have had to come up with creative ways to raise awareness or host events. Like the Mary Mac Foundation changing their annual golf tournament to a pickle ball tournament. The Art League of Ocean City is no different. They’re hosting a 100 Pieces of HeART Benefit Online Auction all month! We talk with Rina Thaler, Executive Director of The Art League, to learn all about the online auction.
25 years ago, Dogfish Head Brew Pub opened up in downtown Rehoboth Beach. During the brewery’s 25 years here, it has certainly become a Delmarva staple. Dogfish Head Founder, Sam Calagione’s unique style of brews helped put his mark in the beer world. Sam has found inspiration for his beers in places that are often off the beaten path. Making beer has inspired him to also make a better community for all. Lisa recently visited Dogfish Head to learn all about their silver anniversary and what making a better community for all means.
