What’s Happening Today – March 18, 2019
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Some people collect baseball cards, snow globes, records, and more, but one you may not hear of every day is someone collecting clothes irons. Frank Beebe of Frederica, Del. shows DelmarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield his unique, vintage iron collection.
It’s been 15 years since the death of Tim Kennard. His legacy lives on thanks to the Tim Kennard 10 Mile River Run and 5k Run/Walk. Race Founders Harlan Eagle and Lind Mills, along with Whisper, joins us in Historic Studio D to tell us all about this year’s race. The 16th Tim Kennard 10 Mile River Run and 5k Run/Walk will take place on March 24 at 8:30 am at Salisbury University. This run/walk is in his honor, with proceeds going, as Tim requested, to help children and animals. This year the proceeds will help Coastal Hospice, Horizons Salisbury and Coalition of Caring.

We’ve seen it happen time and time again. Great things happen when communities come together. That’s the idea our next guests have and our countries great heroes are the ones who will benefit from it. Coastal Hospice‘s Access Manager, Nancy Stewart, and Chairman of the Board, Steve Farrow, join us to talk about an upcoming event benefiting our veterans. At the event, people can expect to hear from speakers, enjoy entertainment, as well as refreshments, and local, state and national resources for veterans will be available. “Welcome Home, Vietnam Veterans” Day is March 30 from 1 pm – 3 pm at Easton High School. This is a free event and all veterans are invited to attend.
It wouldn’t be the start of another work week without “Most Wanted Monday.” Lt. Tim Robinson, with the Wicomico County Sherriff’s Office, stops by to detail this week’s list. He’ll explain how tips that lead to an arrest could result in some extra cash for anyone who calls Crime Solvers at 410-548-1776.
Our stories are what make us who we are and the neat thing about them is that we get to be the author. Michelle Roberts from Monokin in Somerset County, had chapters in her story of life that would have broken even the strongest of people, but instead, those bad times motivated her to be a vessel to help others going through the same things. Michelle joins us to share a bit of her story and talk about her book, “Suffering in Silence: Everyone Has a Story.”
There are many people on Delmarva who, at a young age, have already gone through more trials than most adults. Issues such as substance abuse, incarceration, unplanned pregnancies and event homelessness. There’s a resource on Delmarva that steps in when young women are down and out. Dr. Kishma George, founder of “Kingdom Investments in Single Hearts,” or the “Kish Home,” joins us to talk about the non-profit program. To learn more about the program, volunteer or apply for the Transitional Living Program, go here.
