Ahh..the start of September. I can feel the cool weather already rolling in. And soon enough, that cool weather will turn into cold weather. We can assure you that you will not want to wait until those freezing nights to make sure your HVAC system is up-to-date. Today, we talk with Mindy Allen-Townsend, Managing Partner of A&A Companies, to find out about fall maintenance.
If we asked you; what do you love the most about living on Delmarva? What would you say? It’s probably difficult to narrow it down. The open spaces, the community feel, the beaches, it’s so hard to choose. Well, Dustin and Rachel Parker of the Parker Group feel the same way. They believe in so much in what the Peninsula has to offer that they have made it their mission to help people find homes here. They broke into the real estate biz about 5 years ago and have not looked back. Katie visited to find out how the Parker Group has grown since then.
When it comes to our loved ones, it’s important to keep them engaged. And caring for them means more than just taking care of their physical needs. It means taking care of their body, their mind – the need to stay active. But during these days of social distancing, that can be more of a challenge than you think. Today, we talk with Vice President of Resident Programs at Commonwealth Senior Living, to find out how they’re taking care of your loved ones during these “different days.”
If you like drama, you’ll find plenty of it during this election season. During any election season for that matter. The fight for power tends to get a little emotional. That’s the idea behind a new book, “Poetic Justice.” It’s set on the Delmarva Peninsula and centered around one of our local traditions, Return Day. We talk with Author, Andrea Johnson, about the court thriller. To find out more about Andrea, please visit her website ajthenovelist.com.
