What’s Happening Today – September 24, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife – Jimmy and Lisa are in Cape Charles
Lisa and Jimmy are certainly getting their steps in across the very walkable Cape Charles. All of Delmarva is invited to do the same. It’s as easy as lacing up those sneaks, taking in those sweet views, and getting to stepping with the Lower Shore walking tour. We talk with Director of Preventative Services and Communications with the Somerset County Health Department, Sharon Lynch, about “Walktober.”
While the crew takes in the view around Cape Charles, they’re probably noticing all of the beautiful Crepe Myrtles around the town. They’re everywhere and there’s a very good reason for that, which we will learn about soon. But first – let’s learn about these beautiful plans. For that, we turn to our Gardening Expert, Ginny Rosenkrantz.
We always encourage you to check out our WBOC News App for the latest on stories and conditions affecting Delmarva. Technology has made it easier than ever to stay in the loop regarding information that impacts you. And now, the Wicomico Sheriff’s Office is jumping on board. To learn all about the new app, we turn to Lieutenant Tim Robinson.
The City of Pocomoke will be saying goodbye to summer and welcoming fall with some great tunes. Tonight, marks the final, free concert in Cypress Park for the season. Don’t be worried, there’s still plenty of fun happening this fall in Worcester County. We talk with Karah Lacy, Events and Downtown Coordinator, about what to expect this fall.
Jimmy and Lisa aren’t the only ones who get to have some fun today. I am literally so excited about this…We are virtually visiting the charming town to get a lesson on how to make fresh pasta. We’re learning from the best – Owner of Ambrogia Caffe & Enoteca, Cristina Carollo and Chef Terry. They’re in the kitchen making Fettucine!
