Noting a couple of Century Marks in Delco

It was a historic weekend here in Delaware County.

At the courthouse in Media, they were marking the centennial of the U.S. entry into World War I.

And in Eddystone, they also noting a 'historic' event, the 100th anniversary of one of the darkest days in borough history, the explosion at a local munitions plant that too the lives of more than 100 residents.

Relatives of several of those killed in that blast came back to the borough Saturday to reflect on their loved ones. In many instances, no remains were recovered after the blast and fire.

They have a word that is often bandied about in these kinds of instances. They call it closure.

I think it fits perfectly for the scene in Eddystone.

We covered both of these important events in the county.

We tied them together with a front page we titled - Century Mark.
