A new addition to Stadium Park in Delphos has been added as part of an Eagle Scout project.

Jason Ditto organized the installation for a Prisoner of War and Missing in Action chair in Stadium Park, located at the base of the flag poles on the east end of the field for his Eagle Scout project.  The chair represents that there will always be a spot to remember those that have been lost or never found in combat, and Ditto says that the idea came from similar chairs around the area.

"There was one put in a stadium around here, and they were put in stadiums around here by veterans organizations," said Ditto.  "A gentleman approached me from one of the organizations that have put one in and thought that that might make a good Eagle Scout project, and I kind of ran away with it."

Ditto is looking for donations to help fund the project, for more information, contact the Delphos Veterans Council.
