More than 60 people packed Marble Hall at Delphos Wesleyan Church for the swearing-in of Mayor Bev Cross-McNeal by Delphos Mayor Michael Gallmeier.
As soon as the oath was taken, 30-plus children garbed in chef aprons and hats slathered cakes with icing and placed carefully-chosen decorations in the Kids Cake Decorating Contest.
Children could choose from an assortment of gummy candies and of course, frogs, the official Marbletown amphibian.
After the last crumb of cake was gone, 30 pairs of corn hole players battled for the top two spots in the annual Corn Hole Competition. Chad German and Brian Gossard took first place and Donny Rice and Damon Coil second.
A full slate of events is planned today, including kids’ games at 10:30 a.m., the frog-jumping contest at 11:30 a.m., fire truck rides and inflatables, the parade at 1 p.m., the dedication of the new flag pole and Roger Crowe Memorial Tree and more.
