AmeriCorps members to help fight pandemic

This is ‘an opportunity to re-examine how we deliver health,’ U.S. Sen. Chris Coons said, noting he has five AmeriCorps members serving in his office.

Snow, sleet make for a hazardous weather outlook

The storm is huge, hitting the Plains, the mid-Atlantic and the gulf, so the big question is which areas get the nasty precipitation and which get rain.

You can imagine the treats at the end of this finish line! The Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay held their annual Thin Mint 5K on Sunday, drawing more than 700 runners and walkers to Wilmington’s Riverfront. Senator Coons, himself the father of a Girl Scout, addressed the crowd before the youngest runners took their places at the start line for the traditional pre-race fun run.

And while many Girl Scout families participated, other non-profits were also well-represented. Organizations like the Y and Paws 4 People had booths at the event, while others participated in the race itself. Team Seas It recruited nearly 100 friends to support cancer recovery through recreation and honor the memory of founder Todd McGovern. In fact, team organizer and Tatnall School teacher Lindsay McConnel was the third place female finisher. Congrats to Lindsay, her team and all the girls (and boys!), parents and friends who came out for the race!
