What’s Happening Today – Nov. 9, 2016
Today on DelmarvaLife:
We take pride in honoring our war heroes and our military veterans here on Delmarva. In Georgetown, we’re about to see a new monument going up, not only honoring the falling, but preserving history. You might have noticed a giant thermometer in Georgetown’s circle in the recent weeks, but that thermometer is about to be replaced by a WWI monument. Commander Rowland Scott, from American Legion 8 of Georgetown and Judy Lawson, Chairman of the WWI Monument Fund, join us to talk about the history of WWI in Sussex County and tell us all about the monument.
The topic is pretty morbid, but it’s something that should be done. Not only does a will make things easier for you, but for the family you leave behind. WBOC’s Chris Weimer recently found out the importance of getting a will and he shares that information with us today. Learn more tonight on WBOC News at 6 pm.
Next weekend, children from all over Delmarva will join the National Christian Choir for the Magi Choral Festival. It’s an event that, for 23 years, has entertained thousands of people, but raised money to help others who are not so fortunate ahead of the holiday season. Bonnie Luna with the Magi Fund to tell us more about the 2016 Magi Choral Festival. The event will be held on Saturday, Nov. 19 at 7 pm, and on Sunday, Nov. 20 at 2 pm, at the Wicomico High School Auditorium.
We’ve got a new segment premiering today titled, “What’s the Difference?” Sean joins us from Rise-Up Coffee‘s east college location in Salisbury to explain what’s the difference between cold brew coffee, iced coffee, and hot coffee.
The Bridgeville Beer and Barrel Festival is Sat., Nov. 12 from 11 am-4 pm at Heritage Shores in Bridgeville. Lynn Brocato, the Executive Director of the Greater Seaford Chamber of Commerce, joins us to tell us all about the upcoming festival. The event features unlimited samples from Delmarva breweries, wineries, distilling companies, meaderies and cideries. Tickets in advance are $25 per person, $10 designated drivers, and $30 at the door.
Be sure to tune in today at 5 pm!
