What’s Happening Today – October 9, 2019
Today on DelmarvaLife –
We just wrapped up the month of September and National Recovery Month to increase awareness and understanding of substance abuse. September is over, but the push to raise awareness and educate the community continues and should never stop. Dr. Suni Jani of Community Behavioral Health joins us to talk about substance abuse and its connection to mental health.
We meet a local photographer who’s on a mission to raise awareness to the one-in-four women who experience the loss of a baby, but go on to have a healthy baby. Scott Malone uses photography to celebrate “rainbow babies.”
A Sussex County man came across a unique find in his garage. Now, he’s on a mission to find the family of the owner of the historic memorabilia that belonged to a WWI veteran.
Next month, Wicomico Recreation and Parks and Iron Strong CrossFit are holding the first-ever Delmarva Fitness Classic. Co-ed teams of two will compete to see who is the fittest. We talk with organizer Brian Workman about what’s involved and how the competition is scaled to allow just about everyone to participate.
Halloween in just about three weeks away, but the fun has already begun at Chincoteague Island KOA. The campground has become the little island of horrors for the month of October. The fall season is also a great time to book a stay because of other big time benefits. DelmarvaLife’s Katie Zarrilli scoped out the spooky scene.
