What’s Happening Today – Nov. 20, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
In June 2016, 8-year-old Lily Reckeweg came to the studio to talk about Athletes Serving Athletes. Lily has Spina Bifida, but because of Athletes Serving Athletes, she is able to compete in main stream athletic events. Lily also asked Lisa to be her wingman at the event, which is a title given to the athletes who help athletes like Lily get to the finish line. Eastern Shore Community Coordinator for Athletes Serving Athletes, Jill Fears, and Heather Mahler, program director of the Community Foundation, joins us on the couches today to tell us about the “The Shore Gives More” effort taking place next week for Giving Tuesday. The Community Foundation has partnered with Athletes Serving Athletes for three years. You can also contribute to Lisa’s fundraising as a wingman for ASA. Just click here.
Family will soon gather around the table to create wonderful Thanksgiving memories. Perhaps you’ll see loved ones who you don’t get to see as often as you’d like. In some cases, that can be a very eye-opening situation, particularly when it comes to our older loved ones. For instance, you might notice that mom, dad, grandma or grandpa doesn’t seem as sharp as they once were, or may have trouble remembering familiar faces. The team at Delmar Assisted Living is very familiar with situations like that, and can help. They’ll elaborate on a few tell-tale signs to look for as you gather as a family.
Have you ever driven by a place for years, but never stopped in, or you have been there, but not for a very long time? If that’s the case with the Georgetown Family Restaurant, Lisa tells you why it’s time to make a stop!
WBOC Sussex County Bureau Chief Madeleine Overturf stops by to discuss something that, unfortunately, we’ve recently seen a lot of on Delmarva: animal hoarding. Madeleine tells us more about the psychology behind it, and its lasting impact on the animals
