Last Friday, the Delta Optimist celebrated the 90th anniversary of its first issue.
Published on March 23, 1922, about 500 copies of that first edition of what was then known as The Weekly Optimist hit the streets.
This week's Optimist contains a special magazine to commemorate the milestone.
Over the past nine decades, the Optimist has chronicled Delta's evolution from sleepy village to vibrant municipality.
The special anniversary magazine showcases not only the evolution of the paper but the community as well.
In it, you'll find information about the history of the paper, stories about significant events from decades past, as well as advertisements and photos that provide a look back on the day-to-day life of years gone by.
