It’s nice to start the week with a blog about something positive and that’s what I can do today thanks to the tremendous amount of community support that was in evidence over the weekend during the St. Johns Fall Festival. With most of the activities that have been part of the festival each October for more than a century canceled because of Covid19 concerns, this years’ festival was limited to the sales and serving of drive-through carry out dinners. Supporters from inside and outside the parish and community purchased 7,000 of them. That’s a number that’s larger than the population of the city of Delphos. Adults and student volunteers gave up portions of their weekend preparing, dishing out and serving the dinners to people who waited in lines that at times stretched several blocks down 2nd street. The festival support gives new evidence of something those of us who call Delphos home have known for a long time. Despite a pandemic or any other issues that we face, we will turn out to support causes and activities that are important to us in a way that I don’t think you’ll see in many other communities, even those much larger than ours. That’s the way I see it.
