What’s Happening Today – March 5, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Starting off the work week with pie is always a great thing! We’re making the Delmarva famous pies from Rockawalkin’ Pie Bakes. Pie Bake Chairman, Tom Field, and Ad Rep, Chris Pali, join us in the DelmarvaLife kitchen today to make an apple pie and a peach pie.
They are taking orders for those who want an Easter pie. The flavors are apple, cheery, blueberry and peach and pie pickup day is March 28 from noon-5 pm. If you’d like a pie, order by calling Tim, 410-430-4516. The proceeds go to the community hall upkeep, the ruritans and non-profit scholarships.
It’s so easy to take some of the most precious things in life for granted. Something as simple as clean water is unavailable for many people in the world. In 2014, we recognized a Denton, Md. man as a Delmarva Treasure for his efforts to provide clean water to people living in Africa. We’re proud to say the Ken Wood of Lifetime Wells International is still drilling wells in under-served countries. DelmarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield paid a visit to Denton to learn about Ken’s persistent dedication.
Over the weekend, hundreds of people came out to the WBOC Job Fair at Delaware Technical Community College Owens Campus in Georgetown, Del. More than 30 employers, hundreds of opportunities and workshops to help you land a job were at this successful event. We want to focus on another incredible resource with the same idea. This opportunity is for the people on Delmarva living with a disability or for those who are homeless. Director of the Deaf Independent Living Association, or DILA, Mike Purkey joins us in the studio to tell us more their resources.
