What’s Happening Today – June 22, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife:
We have a story that hits close to home. WBOC’s Kimberly Wiggins has shared with us her heartache, after losing her husband, Rasheed, in a hit-and-run accident. Today, she joins us to talk about a health issue that’s not often discussed: uterine fibroids. They’ve taken Kimberly on a very painful and emotional journey. She hopes to break the silence and bring awareness to the all-too-common problem.
WBOC and Sherwood Automotive are teaming up for our next Rising Tide event to benefit Habitat for Humanity. Come out to any Sherwood Automotive location in Salisbury, Maryland, Sherwood’s Auto Outlet 99 of Cambridge in Cambridge, Maryland, or the ReStore of Sussex County Habitat For Humanity in Lewes, Delaware, today from 7 a.m.-7 p.m., and tomorrow from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. Drop off donations or make it a day for your family. Help build a shed at the Salisbury and Lewes locations. Or you can get creative by painting and decorating a stud to go into a Habitat house at all three locations. Plus, come see Chopper 16 as it lands at Habitat’s Lewes Restore on Saturday, June 23. For more information, or to see a list of items to donate, click here. Note: If you wish to donate large items such as refrigerators, washers, dryers, doors, etc., please go to the drop off locations on Friday or Saturday and schedule a pickup at a future date.
We like to document our journey with pictures. We’ll sit down with Photographer Macey Holyak and Creative Director Gloria Holyak to talk about capturing those important moments during the journey. Macey will also explain why, sometimes, it’s best for people to put down the camera and enjoy the moment. She’ll also discuss her popular pinup photo sessions, and why she has a passion for capturing life’s many special moments.
We’re learning more about the exciting summer lineup at Clear Space Theatre Company in Rehoboth Beach. Some of the shows include The Rocky Horror Show, Footloose, Mary Poppins, and The Late-R Night Show. There’s also a Summer Children’s Theatre program. If you’d like to inquire about any of the offerings at Clear Space Theatre Company, call 302-227-2270.
We’ve talked multiple times about the summer slide, and the importance of promoting literacy even though school is not in session right now. One way to do that is to keep our children reading all summer long, but books can get pricey. Not if you visit The Dollar Book Shuffle in Laurel. You’ll find all of the books you’d expect to see in a book store, and each one only costs one dollar. DelmarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield shows us why this is one of those deals that’s NOT too good to be true.
Salisbury’s Treyce Wilson takes the Mid South Audio stage. He’ll perform a couple of classics that will help us kick off the weekend – “Fly Me To The Moon” by Frank Sinatra, and “Mack the Knife” by Bobby Darin.
We continue our giveaways in the 2018 DelmarvaLife Summer Guide. We announce four winners today, of four incredible prizes. Will you be one of them?
