Delmar Starts Plans For 100th Birthday in Fall of 1959
The Towns of Delmar are beginning to think about the celebration for their 100th anniversary to be held around October 16th 1959.
The President of the Maryland Town Commission M.B. Sherwood and Mayor A. E. Hantwerker are setting their heads together to study what sort of celebration will be possible and to stir interest in the movement.
According to records the last spike in the railroad from Wilmington to Delmar was driven on that date and it is generally accepted the town sprang up at the same time.
Sometime soon the town fathers will get together with the heads of organizations and go over the possibilities of such a celebration. Already facts and figures have been gathered from towns that have previously held anniversary programs.
