What’s Happening Today – May 4, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Roadways are something we encounter each day. Whether taking public transportation, a ride sharing service, or driving yourself, it is important to know the roads are not just for cars and trucks. Delaware State Police are looking to the Delaware State Police Outreach Unit to help spread this message to area children by holding an art contest for kids. Director of the Public Information Office for the Delaware State Police, Sergeant Richard Bratz, as well as Community Outreach Officer, Senior Corporal Juanita Huey Smith join us to talk about this year’s theme, what they are looking for in winning pictures, and how children will enter. For more information on the contest, click here!
