Seniors from Jefferson and St. John’s high schools were treated to the Rotary Walking Tour this morning. Twelve tour groups were herded by volunteer guides through the museums and historic sites of downtown Delphos. Doris Dickman, left, tells her group about the projector room of the old movie theater where she used to work as a high school student. “If you ever wondered why old movies like The Ten Commandments had an intermission in the middle, it was so they could wind the film for the second half,” Dickman said. Some of the other sites on the tour include the old Walsh and Remlinger buildings (now H&R Block and the Delphos Club, respectively), Lock 23 and the old city building, now the police and fire departments. All groups convened at the VFW for lunch. See more photos in Thursday’s Herald.
