What’s Happening Today – September 16, 2020
It’s Wellness Wednesday and we’re celebrating the Tri-County team of Wicomico, Worcester, and Somerset counties that take on the issue of addiction together. We find out how they lean on each other for resources, and learn about the different strengths each county brings to the table.
In these days of COVID-19, we’ve all had to get a little bit creative when it comes to connection. Staff at Delmar Assisted Living kept residents engaged with their community by assigning local high school and middle school students as their pen pals. We chat with director of operations Kevin Boothe and see why he calls this their most successful project yet.
Keeping people across Delmarva entertained is another area in which folks have had to get creative…and they’ve done it! The Rehoboth Beach Film Society has provided films available for streaming, reopened a local theater, and plans to go on with an upcoming festival. We get the scoop from the society’s executive director.
What does it mean to be a “transit evangelist?” That’s a question Paul Comfort is so dedicated to answering, that he wrote a book about it! We enjoy a virtual visit with Paul and get a preview of his book, “The Future of Public Transportation.”
Students in Talbot County are learning to express themselves through graphic technology, and their work is set to go on display. We’re connecting with leaders of the program and hearing more about why its particularly vital during these different days.
Speaking of schools and creativity, one Cape Henlopen High School teacher took welcoming students back to the next level. We introduce you to Mr. Jason Fruchtman and find out what inspired a video that would make the late Fred Rogers smile.
