What’s Happening Today — June 30, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
Think back to those summer camp days. Splashing in the water, playing with kids who turned into great friends, and most importantly, sitting by the campfire roasting marshmallows and singing songs. Some of the best memories were made at summer camp. This year, summer camps are going virtual. We talk with Jennifer Leggour, Executive Director of Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services to find out how a virtual summer camp works and how kids can participate.
When coronavirus made everything virtual, it seemed like an impossible task. But, Delmarva has taken it head on. There are virtual books, virtual races, and most recently, virtual summer camps. Well, we’re adding one more thing to the list: virtual scouting, as in boy scouting. We talk with Robert Nakagawa, Scout Executive with the “Boy Scouts of America Delmarva Council”, to learn about “scouting at home.”
2020 opened our eyes to the dangers we can’t see or hear. As the world starts to reopen, we need to stay alert for what we can see. Law Enforcement reports that drivers are taking advantage of reduced traffic to ignore speed limits and pedestrians are using the streets to maintain a 6 foot distance. We talk with Bala Akundi, Principal Transportation Engineer, to learn about the “Look Alive” Campaign.

Dr. Ana-Mata Fink specializes in all things shoulder and was immediately drawn to the practice because of their outstanding reputation. Katie recently visited to learn all about the new surgeon.
