What’s Happening Today – September 10, 2019
Today on DelmarvaLife –
Seeing the Chincoteague ponies make the swim across the Assateague Channel in July is a sight that people travel thousands of miles to see. The Chincoteague Pony Drill Team keeps these beautiful horses in the spotlight all year long. We visit a horse farm in Bloxom to see what it takes to be a part of this elite team.
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a sobering sight, that not everyone can travel to see. That’s where “The Wall That Heals” comes in. Two Vietnam Veterans with VFW Post 7234 stop by Historic Studio D to talk about an upcoming visit to Ocean View.
You see them out on the road all the time, but how often do we think about how thankful we are for truck drivers who are willing to put in long hours and endless miles to get different cargo where it needs to be? It’s National Truck Driver Appreciation Week and to celebrate, we’re introducing you to the best of the best when it comes to truck drivers. Graylyn Hinmon has drive for more than three decades for Perdue Farms and is being celebrated for driving 3,000,000 safe miles.
With varying degrees of information coming at us from all directions, it’s sometimes hard to decipher what is true and what is hyperbole. Knowing where we stand with the economy is a case in point. Senior Vice President and Head of Delaware Operations with Provident State Bank in Lewes, Brian Gottschalk tells us where Delmarva stands and what the future looks like.
The Bearded Men’s Society of Ocean City is getting ready for their annual “Facial Hair n’ Ocean Air” event. It’s a beard contest that raises money for Diaknonia that’s happening this weekend in Ocean City. We hear from the society’s president, Rob Dunn and Jackie Thomas who is competing in the “Whiskerina” contest.
On Monday’s show, 102.5 WBOC’s Corey Phoebus talked about how he loved to cook steaks. You know we couldn’t let that go, so we asked him to get to work in the DelmarvaLife Kitchen. Corey shows us how to make a compound butter that perfectly compliments steak.
