What’s Happening Today – Oct. 2, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
We can all agree with the statement that no veteran should have to face tough times. Today, we’re learning about an effort that can help those heroes who might be struggling right now. Th event is called “Veterans Stand Down” and it’s taking place on Oct. 14 from 10 am-3 pm at American Legion Post 64 in Salisbury. For more information, call 410-742-1571.
Lt. Tim Robinson with the Wicomico County Sheriff’s Office has a new list of most wanted for us. See today’s Most Wanted Monday here. The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office sent us a list of most wanted individuals as well and you can check it out here.
October is breast cancer awareness month and everyone is breaking out their pink to show support and make us aware of this deadly disease. Peninsula Regional Medical Center‘s Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute is helping with its 13th Annual Breast Cancer Conference, a “Perspective on Breast Cancer.” One of the subjects covered will be soy and breast cancer. Katie Dorsch, a clinical dietitian at PRMC, joins us in the DelmarvaLife kitchen to show us how to make edamame guacamole with wasabi and tells us that soy is good in moderation for those with breast cancer.
President of the Delmarva Gospel Music Association, Jim Collins, joins us on the couches to tell us all about their association and tells us about their upcoming event on Oct. 6 at 6 pm. We get a preview of that event when Amanda Jones performs on the Mid South Audio Stage.
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.
