DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — The City of Delphi is celebrating the grand opening of the Delphi Community Center. The community has gone nearly seven years without one.

The facility was created with senior citizens in mind. It doubles as community space and a place to house the city's senior family services.

The facility was built almost entirely through monetary donations and volunteer work. It includes a full functioning kitchen, a work out room and open space for events.

Delphi City Councilman Dale Seward said this facility is long overdue.

“It brings your community together,” said Seward. “It shows the senior community that we care about them, that they are valued and they are part of the community and up until this got open, that was a question.”

Seward is proud to be a part of this project.

“It's a legacy. It's not something where there's a bunch of credit or anything like that,” said Seward. “I can now drive past this and my family can drive past it and know that we were a part of this and it's a good feeling.”

The community can rent the space through the city. It's $75 for four hours and $125 all day.
