Today on DelmarvaLife —
It’s more vital than ever to get your flu shot this year. Yes, it’s important every year, but throw COVID-19 concerns on top of flu season, and it’s easy to see why you’ll want to take every precaution you can against getting sick. We talk with Roger Follebout, Director of Strategic Communications at TidalHealth Peninsula Regional, about a free, drive-thru flu clinic happening in Salisbury.
The first town in the first state – Sussex County, Lewes. Rich in history, abundant in activity. Millsboro’s Peninsula Golf and Country Club. A scenic course, proven to be challenging. So, what do the two have in common with each other? The Lewes Historical Society has chosen that location to host its’ inaugural golf tournament classic. As we find out from Katie, this event is going to be anything but ordinary.
A dream come true for artists’ – the opportunity to turn a basketball court/tennis court from something ordinary into something extraordinary. We’re talking to Megan Cook and Shelton Hawkins with “Play in Color” about an upcoming mural contest.
The coronavirus may have put a halt to spring and summer sports, but fall sports are here. The kids are ready. It’s time to kick it into high gear and have a blast. That’s what you’ll find with the Delmarva Blast Soccer Club. We talk with President, Rusty Brown about the club.
Local libraries are coming through again…over the past few months, we’ve kept you in the loop about how libraries on Delmarva have been keeping people engaged, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. In Wicomico County they continue to do so – now, with stronger hotspots and the lending of laptops. We talk with Cheryl Sidwell, Events and Development Manager with Wicomico Public Libraries about a grant that’s certain to benefit the people of Wicomico County.
While plans may have been put on hold this year – the haunts are happening in Laurel. For nearly 3 decades, folks have visited the Cemetery House during October to get spooked out of their skin. And even COVID-19 can’t stop the scares this year. Those who dare are invited to come out to Laurel. A warning: it might not be what you’re used to – but maybe, that’ll add to the spooky experience. Katie’s in Laurel for spooks and scares and scares and spooks.
