What’s Happening Today – September 3, 2020
Today on DelmarvaLife –
In January of 2017, Salisbury lost two young people to addiction. Mac Wessels and Morgan Taylor. For the second year in a row, Clarion Call Restoration Ministries will be holding a 5-K Race in their memory, hoping to raise awareness to an epidemic that is destroying lives. We talk with second Vice President, Crystal Miles, about the importance of the ministry and how the event may look a little different this year.
A delivery of potentially, life-saving equipment for our medical workers. And yes, even though we’re more than 6 months into this COVID-19 pandemic, it is still needed. The people delivering the equipment are volunteer pilots who cover all the costs. Today, we talk with Pilot, Alicia Skies, with the non-profit “Angel Flight East” to learn more about how the non-profit works.
While, some Coronavirus restrictions are being lifted, mask requirements seem to be staying put. It seems like, since day one, the quality of masks that people are wearing and the effectiveness in preventing transmission of COVID-19 have been in question. A health, wellness, and beauty store in Dover has been selling a mask that is selling like hot cakes. Lisa recently visited Laura’s Choice to learn more.
As many schools kick off the new year by starting virtually, so are many of the programs that support those students. Programs like the Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore. We talk with Development Director, Laura Thornton, about their virtual programming, that helps both students and teachers.
Love letters are just one example of devotion in difficult times. Business owners in the city of Lewes want members of the greater community to be aware of a similar dedication. “Love Comma Lewes” is their campaign to make people aware that they want to reconnect, but in a COVID, safe way. A love letter of sorts, in hopes that people will reciprocate. Katie visits Lewes to find out more.
Just like many of Delmarva’s treasured events, COVID-19 concerns have forced the cancellation of the Annual Nanticoke Indian Powwow. However, organizers have their sights set on next year, and the celebration that’s already in the works is shaping up to be an epic one. We talk with Chief, Natosha Carmine, of the Nanticoke Indian Association along with Sterling Street, Coordinator of the Nanticoke Indian Museum, to learn about this tradition and what’s in the works for next year.
