Today on DelmarvaLife –
Due to COVID, Shirl Carmine hadn’t been able to see her mother for months. Well, the Crisfield Volunteer Fire Department got word, did what they always do and made the moment pretty magical.

Childhood presents a lot of challenges, but imagine being a foster child on top of that. Not only are you dealing with the struggles of childhood, you’re also dealing with the uncertainty of the future. Well, one group on Delmarva is stepping up to support those children by giving them resources for care and comfort. Today, we talk with Jen Mabe, Marketing Manager at Rommel Harley-Davidson Delmarva, to learn about “Foster Friends.”
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na…BATMAN! Today, we’re learning all about bats from Batman himself. Ok, maybe not the actual Batman, but someone who comes pretty close. We talk with Jay Wilkins, Owner of Wilkins Wildlife and Bedbug 911, to find out how we can avoid a bat situation inside our homes.
Play ball! Katie’s taking in the sunshine and testing her baseball skills. She visits Rich Swift, Media Relations VP with the Ty Cobb Senior Baseball League, at the Henry S. Parker Athletic Complex. They discuss what it takes to be in the league.
We’re doing our best to get you in the feels today, and we have a program that we think might seal the deal. There’s nothing quite like the bond between a human and a horse. Horses are often considered gentle giants – giants that have the power to reach people in a way many others can’t. Lisa recently visited Sonshine Equine Horsemanship, to find out about a program that’s done so much to heal the hearts of both children and adults.

What to Do
- The first decision is whether you’re going to pre-scoop the ice cream or let everyone scoop their own. If you’re going the pre-scoop route, use an ice cream scoop and place each scoop onto a rimmed baking sheet. Freeze the scoops for at least an hour before serving.
- Assemble all your sauces and toppings in fun bowls and set them out on a table. Using a wide, watertight container, fill with ice. Place scoops of ice cream onto a serving platter and nestle the platter into the ice. If you’re letting everyone scoop their own ice cream, arrange the ice cream containers in the ice, add a scooper to each, and let ‘em go to town!
