Rotary Weekly Reporter: August 12, 2021

The History Committee of the Rotary Club of Wilmington has set a goal of embracing the Club’s history and that includes the history of the club and its context in the city and the region. The Fellowship Committee has joined this effort and will offer a chance to take in some history this Thursday, August 12, we’ll forgo our usual meeting for a walking tour of Market Street.

Please join the Delaware Historical Society for a walking tour of Market Street—consider it a stroll of a meeting. We’ll convene at the Hotel duPont side of Rodney Square at Noon. We’ll walk for 60-75 minutes down the heart of the commercial district exploring its social and architectural history and current efforts to preserve and activate historic buildings on the street. We’ll end at the Delaware Historical Society, where restrooms are available.
