What’s Happening Today – Oct. 18, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Delmarva is so rich in history and there are still new historical sites being discovered. DelamarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield recently visited Delmar where she found a little caboose packed with history and a great story and it’s all thanks to members of the Delmar Historical and Art Society.
There are so many people on Delmarva who may seem like normal, everyday people, but they may actually encompass amazing talents. That’s the idea behind an event happening next month in Worcester County and it’s called “The Launch – Faces of the Moon.” Patti Miller serves on the executive board of the Worcester County Education Foundation and she joins us in the studio to tell us about the event and the foundation’s goal. You will see many performers of all ages and genres at the event on Nov. 4 at the OC Performing Arts Center beginning at 7 pm. Local Composer, Daniel Bowen, is headlining in next month’s show and he is performing for us on the Mid South Audio Stage today.
The Sneakers and Creepers 5K Run/2 Mile Walk is coming up! PRMC Exercise and Physiologist, Caroline Farrell, joins us in the studio to tell us all about the event and how it endorses positive health. The run/walk is Sunday, Oct. 29 at Avery W. Hall Educational Center at PRMC. Registration begins at 7:30 am and the run/walk begins at 9 am. This event is free! There will be a costume contest and post-race party as well.
It is recommended that you start sleep training your baby at the age of four months. It sounds young, but according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, at this stage, your baby should be able to sleep through the night, up to 12 hours, without feeding. Director of Peninsula Sleep Waves at PRMC, Linda Hurley, gives us advice on how to get a better night’s rest – even if you have a little one at home.
It’s not every day you get the chance to win a brand new roof for your home. It’s all thanks to Spicer Bros. Construction‘s Delmarva’s Neediest Roof Contest. Nominations can be made from Oct. 2-Oct. 31. The voting period will be Nov. 6-Nov. 26 and the winner will be announced on Dec. 1 on DelmarvaLife. Spicer Bros. will actually be giving away two roofs instead of just one this year. There will be two separate winners – one from DE/MD and one from VA. Enter here.
