Today on DelmarvaLife:

It’s been said that one of the first features people notice about you is your smile. The team at Johnson Orthodontics in Rehoboth Beach can help you make sure that your smile is one you’re proud of. DelmarvaLife’s Sydney Whitfield recently stopped by their office and learned that Dr. Johnson and his team does so much more than deliver extraordinary smiles with extraordinary service.
Taking care of someone with medical needs can be rewarding for people who work in healthcare. But once a patient leaves the hospital, they may still need more attention and that’s where Peninsula Home Care can help. The PHC team meets their patients in the comfort of that patient’s home. It’s a job that requires a special set of skills, which is why they make sure their staff never stops learning. The annual skills fair is an event designed for their team to brush up on their healthcare expertise. The fair covers topics like chest tube draining, blood work care, and many more.
The trucking industry adds so much to our community and helps support families that live right here on Delmarva. The 15th anniversary for the world’s largest truck convoy is taking place on Oct. 7. Trucks depart from Harrington at 10 am. WBOC is a proud sponsor of the 2017 Truck Convoy.
The Fifth Annual Car Show and Parade is taking place on Oct. 8. The parade will start in Ocean Pines at 10 am and the car show will begin at 11 am. Pre-registration is available online for $12 or $15 the day of the show. Learn more about the event and register here.
