What’s Happening Today – Sept. 19, 2017
Today on DelmarvaLife:
Today is ‘National Talk Like a Pirate Day.’ The Lewes Historical Society is a group committed to celebrating it to the fullest. We’re going to chat with some of the motley crew in the audience today.
We recently sent 102.5 WBOC’s Corey Phoebus to Ocean Pines Racquet Club to find out how the popularity of raquet sports is rapidly growing. Corey talks to Manager Erin Star to see what they have to offer at the club. Corey tests his skills out at tennis, platform tennis, and pickleball.
Cleaning up the yard takes a lot of work but the worst part is figuring out how to haul it off your property. Perhaps that could change with the help of a utility trailer. Corey stopped by Creighton’s Trailer Sales in Mardela Springs where he quickly learned how useful a trailer can be.
This time of year, there are all kinds of harvest festivals and fall festivals, but I think it’s safe to say, only one thing combines grape stomping with running and arts and crafts. You can do all that at the 8th Annual Harvest Festival and Vineyard Dash 5K at Layton’s Chance in Vienna, Md. Owner of Layton’s Chance Vineyard and Winery, Jen Layton, and Director of Dorchester County Tourism, Amanda Fenstermaker, join us in the studio to talk about this family-friendly event. The event is Saturday, Sept. 23 from 11 am-6 pm at Layton’s Chance and tickets are $7 in advance, $10 at the door and children are free.
Vice President of SoDel Concepts, Chef Doug Ruley, and Chair of the SoDel Fest, Stacy Lamotta, join us in the DelmarvaLife kitchen to talk about the upcoming Southern Delaware Wine, Food and Music Festival. SoDel Fest is Saturday, Oct. 7 from noon to 4 pm at Independence Clubhouse in Millsboro, Del. Doug also shows us how to make an apple and cauliflower salad.

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have affected millions of people. The widespread devastation caused by these hurricanes has prompted Sherwood Automotive’s Rising Tide program to ask you to help us provide financial donations for the youngest victims of these storms. To make this happen, Sherwood Automotive has teamed up with WBOC’s Bless Our Children campaign. Every cent you donate to the Bless Our Children program through September will go directly to charities helping children affected by these disasters. To donate, go here.
