What’s Happening Today – June 6, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife:
We’re talking ticks in another round of “Ask the Doc” – your questions answered, no topic off limits. Chief Informatics Officer and Hospitalist with Peninsula Regional Medical Center, Chris Snyder, tells us what we should – and should not – do if we find a tick on our body. If you have a medical question you’d like answered, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We might ask Dr. Snyder one of your questions in a future show, and you WILL remain anonymous!
We’re also learning how you can play a major role in powering your community. It’s called “Do More 24 Delaware.” It’s a 24-hour fundraising campaign that begins tomorrow. Funds raised support many non-profit organizations in Delaware. Just a sliver of your support can make quite an impact on Delmarva. We’ll learn more.
Local libraries are so much more than a great place to lose yourself in a wonderful book. We’re learning about some of the fun you can find this summer at the Laurel Public Library. The activities include a Summer Reading Program and a new sewing class. Interested families can sign up for different programs as the library’s annual block party on June 9. The fun kicks off at 11 a.m. at the Laurel Public Library.
We’re gearing up for the Snow Hill Middle School Cardboard Regatta. Yes, boats made out of cardboard. Hear more about what it takes to make a cardboard boat float. If you’d like to come out and watch the floating fun, the event takes place on Friday, June 8th at 1:30 p.m. on the Pocomoke River. Happy sailing!
The fun kicks into overdrive when we introduce you to Blondie the Goat. Blondie’s human, Author Sandy Kenney, of Delmar, says Blondie was bullied by two other goats, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise because Blondie’s now the face of a local campaign to stop bullying. It’s quite a story, and we can’t wait to share it with you today. Blondie’s story also inspired Sandy to write a book, Bullying is Baaad!
