What’s Happening Today – Monday, Oct. 8, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife:
While Hurricane Florence has, pretty much, dropped out of news coverage everywhere, the people affected haven’t completely recovered. Several thousand people need basics to clean up and rebuild, and there is a tractor trailer headed there with supplies that you can donate. The following is a list of items needed:
- bug spray
- canned food
- personal hygiene items
- cleaning supplies
There are four drop-off locations:
- That Furniture Store, Salisbury
- Staples Insurance Agency, Salisbury & Harrington
- Sussex Lumber Company, Millsboro
Donations will be accepted through Tuesday, October 9, 2018.
Most of us received the Presidential alert on our cell phones last week. If you live in Wicomico County, you can sign up to receive similar alerts if there is a local emergency. You can register here.
A museum in Ocean City is celebrating its 40th anniversary, but the actual building dates back far beyond that. The Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum not only chronicles the history of these early first responders, but it gives visitors a walk down memory lane to endless summers of the past. We’ll get a tour, and tell you how you can help celebrate this milestone.
It’s one of the tastiest events on Delmarva, and you’re invited. We’re getting ready for this weekend’s Apple Scrapple Festival in Bridgeville. DelmarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield stops by T.S. Smith & Sons to run down just a few of the reasons why you’ll want to visit.
Lt. Tim Robinson, with the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office, stops by with this week’s list of Most Wanted Monday. If you’ve seen anyone featured on today’s list, call Crime Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore at 410-548-1776. Your tip could mean extra cash in your pocket!
It might not feel like it today, but cooler weather will soon be here. If you have a boat, is it ready? We’ll help you make sure that answer is “yes.” 102.5 WBOC‘s Corey Phoebus spends some time with the team at Racetrack Marine in Berlin. They’ll help us understand why winterizing a boat is so important.
We’re always telling you about certain emergency drills that take place across Delmarva. They’re efforts by our first responders to ensure our safety should an emergency situation ever arise. Today, we get a very visual idea of how some of those teams train. Corey spends some time with the Community Emergency Response Team, or “CERT,” in Salisbury. They’ll show him how to properly use a fire extinguisher.
Call it “Motown Monday.” We’re taking it back to the days when groups like The Temptations and The Supremes set the standard for a genre of music that would be respected and loved, even decades after it first came onto the scene. Performers with the Possum Point Motown Revue will perform two Motown favorites, as they tell us about an event where you can enjoy the sounds of Motown. “A Night of Motown Hits – Classic Soul” takes place later this month, in an effort to raise funds for Possum Point Players in Georgetown.
