Would you agree that when it comes to money, the one lesson many people probably wish they would have learned a lot earlier in life is how to stick to a budget? Universal Banker, Carol Miller, with Provident State Bank, stops by to discuss five ways you can become more financially fit.
We’re celebrating Small Town America, right here on Delmarva. Teresa Herring, with the Sharptown Historical Commission, gives us a brief history lesson on the Wicomico County town. She also shares details on Sharptown’s Heritage Day taking place tomorrow, October 19th, 2019.
The celebration of art continues in Sussex County. Earlier this month, we learned about “The Big Draw Festival” in Delaware. Today, two artists with the Developing Artist Collaboration drop in to show Katie and Jimmy how to make a linoleum block print canvas. We’ll also learn more about a “Dirty Hands DIY Station.”
Get ready for ghosts, goblins and goodies! It’s almost time for the 30th annual Sea Witch Festival in Rehoboth Beach. Our sister station, WRDE, is broadcasting the parade next Saturday. We sit down with Madeleine Overturf, Matt Pencek and News Director Bill Shull to hear more about this festive tradition.
