DELPHOS — As the committee gears up for the ninth annual Marbletown Festival Aug. 8 and 9, Chair Kathy Gengler recalls the festival’s humble beginnings.

“It was started by Rev. Dave Howell as a way to bring the people of Marbletown together and help improve Garfield Park,” Gengler said. “The park was in disrepair and the city didn’t have the money or manpower to do anything. The tennis court was in terrible condition and they just didn’t put the net up any more. The basketball court was a small square of concrete and the only thing for the little kids was a few swings and a Merry-Go-Round. Pastor Dave spurred us to work together to change that.”

Eight years and more than $30,000 later, the park has been rejuvenated. Proceeds from the event have been used for improvements, including new sidewalks, a shelterhouse and grill, electricity for the shelterhouse, a drinking fountain, a commemorative stone noting the former site of the Garfield School placed on top of a time capsule, a new flag pole and flag and new trees. The committee also pooled its money with the Kiwanis Club of Delphos and donated toward the slide that was recently installed in the park and the refurbishing of the basketball court.

My son spent the week at my sister’s house this summer so that he could attend hockey camp in Michigan. Of course, being separated from him for a week I was anxious to call him every night to see how he was doing and how camp was going. In my mind, I always envision him having all sorts of stories to tell me about his adventures at camp, the things he is learning, the friends he is making and how much he misses me. Sadly, these long conversations occur only in my imagination.

DELPHOS — There are two new faces in St. John’s Parish. Fathers Ron Schock and Daniel Johnson are filling associate pastor positions. While the two men share the same goals in their service, they couldn’t be more different.

Schock, 55, found his calling under the wheels of a semi during a sled pull at the county fair. He was 23 years old and was the flag man at the pull at Seneca County Fairgrounds.
