What’s Happening Today – Mar. 22, 2018
Today on DelmarvaLife –
We were fortunate enough today to see some sun! Soon you’ll be seeing some blue pinwheels spinning in the sun. The pinwheels are a part of a campaign to end domestic violence. We’re going to learn more about “Pinwheels for Protection,” and the Life Crisis Center, the organization that’s leading the charge.
Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore leads the charge when it comes to helping our kids secure a strong financial future. A huge step in that is landing a job. We’ll get a very visual lesson on the do’s and don’ts during a job interview when Jimmy plays job applicant today.
We’re talking Bubble Ball! We’re sitting down with Stacy Leone and Joan Wharton, with the Salisbury Sunrise Rotary Club to learn about an upcoming tournament and find out how you can get yourself into a bubble ball suit yourself!
And then we’re rolling right over to the DelmarvaLife kitchen, to hang out with Chef Mark Salter from the Robert Morris Inn.
