What’s Happening Today – May 7, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife:
If you are the parent of a boy who is or was a Boy Scout, then you already know what’s involved in the annual Pinewood Derby. Kim Parsons with the Delmarva Council of Boy Scouts, Activities Chair Chelsey Jones and Committee Member, Alex Scott, joins 102.5 WBOC’s Corey Phoebus in Historic Studio D to tell us how the big kids can play too. The Corporate Pinewood Derby is May 18 at The Brick Room in Salisbury, Md. Car check-in is at 5 pm and racing begins at 6 pm.
Every spring, we take joy in announcing the winners of the various teacher of the year programs across Delmarva. It’s these programs taht give the top teachers the recognition they deserve. Sussex Tech High School Teacher and 2018 State Teacher of the Year for Delaware, Jinni Forcucci, joins us in Historic Studio D along with two of her students, Celina and Elian. They talk about their recent trip to Washington where they met with top leaders in education.
When it comes to finances, I think it’s pretty safe to say we’ve all made some moves that probably weren’t the smartest decisions. Maybe it was a shopping spree or splurging on some huge purchase that really wasn’t worth it. Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore works to help young people avoid those types of situations. President Jayme Hayes, along with Christy Rose and Susan King with Avery Hall Insurance, join us in the studio to talk about the program.
There’s just something about a mother’s love that stays with you even after you leave the nest. We celebrate that love on Mother’s Day. DelmarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield stops by Vernon Powell to give us some trendy gift tips for the big day.
Starting Monday, May 7th through Friday, May 18th, we will give away two Firefly Music Festival vouchers each weekday. Those vouchers can be redeemed for general admission passes to the Firefly Music Festival which takes place June 14-17 at the Woodlands in Dover, Del. Enter here.
