Today on DelmarvaLife:
Each summer millions of visitors enjoy Delaware State Park‘s beautiful beaches and parks, and if you’re looking for something to do with the family, the State Park is the place to be. Today we talked about the wide variety of educational and recreational programs and events offered at the Delaware State Park, and you’re invited all summer long! From kayaking trips to ghost crab hunting plus so much more, there’s no shortage of things to do this summer at the Delaware State Parks.
Next, Jimmy and Lisa sat down with local food bank owner, Willa Mae Woodbury, who runs ‘Willa’s Food Pantry’ in Harrington. Willa not only told us about her food bank and those that stop by, but also how she strives to teach people who use the food bank how to cook the items they collect into a healthy and delicious meal.
Then we put all that good food to good use as Jimmy, Lisa and Willa Mae jumped into the kitchen with Chef Sharliena Berry to make a mouthwatering Tuscan White Bean Pasta.

If you’re considering making that delicious meal for Father’s Day, you may also consider treating dad to a little pampering. 102.5 WBOC’s Corey Phoebus traveled to About Faces Spa and Salon in Salisbury to see what treatments the spa has to offer for dad. Whether it’s a massage, a beard blowout or even a fresh new haircut for Father’s Day, About Faces is ready to indulge dad and make sure his Father’s Day is filled with rest and relaxation.
To giving dad peace of mind at the spa, to peace of mind at home, a garage door is as important to your car’s safety, as it is to your family’s, and the professionals at Clark and Sons Inc. are the ones to trust. Jimmy stopped by a home in Salisbury to learn about an innovative three-step safety check that Clark and Sons Inc. uses to ensure your car, home and family’s safety all year long.
WBOC’s Lauren Hitch also stopped by the studio to tell us about the next DelmarvaLife Facebook Live show tomorrow, featuring the perfect recipes for Father’s Day! You can cook along with us, check out our shopping list as we prepare to heat up the kitchen in honor of dad.
