Delphos a hoppin’ place PDF Print

There are some great things going on in Delphos.
The Kiwanis K-kids have coordinated a “City Pride Day” today. All city residents should have received a flyer attached to a garbage bag on their door this week. Please help beautify Delphos by picking up litter, if not from your own property, then someone else’s or even public property.
If you haven’t noticed, some areas of Delphos could use a little TLC. Perhaps the person is unable to perform the tasks to clean up their property and would appreciate some assistance. You could be a good Samaritan and help spruce up Delphos in the process.
If we all pitch in, we can make a difference. We can be proud when people come here and see how much we care about our city.
The Delphos Area Art Guild will open its “Barns of Indiana” exhibit at 6 p.m. today.
Who would have thought little Delphos would be home to an art gallery of such magnificent proportions. Good things are happening on the 2nd Floor Gallery above the Delphos Museum of Postal History.
Good things are also happening on the main floor. If you haven’t stopped in the museum in a while, go ahead. Gary or one of the docents would be happy to show you around. It amazes me that we are home to one of the best museum’s of its kind in the world!
The Canal Commission Museum is making great strides in its renovation project. The second floor is coming along nicely. They have so much more room and items are displayed for easy viewing. The building just feels so different. Again, stop in and one of the many trustees will be happy to give you a tour or point you on your way if you’d rather look at your leisure.
All these things are possible because of generous donations of money as well as time and sweat equity by those who know these things matter. They make Delphos a better place and attract others to come and see what we are about.
Last but not least, the annual Canal Cleanup is right around the corner next Saturday. I am puzzled by the attitude of some who think it’s OK to toss their unwanteds in the canal. There is a division on what should be done with what is now our heritage. Regardless of if you love it or hate it; it is here and needs to be taken care of so it looks cared for and treasured.
Meet Lou and the gang at the Hanser Pavilion that morning and help make the canal a showpiece for all to enjoy.
You never know, you just might see yours truly at any of these events and venues and wind up the star of a future edition of The Herald. If that makes you want to stay home, forget it. I’ll leave you alone. Just come out and enjoy, share and participate.
