Volunteers and Delmont Recreation Board members built new playground equipment at Newhouse Park in 2016. Board officials are seeking additional volunteers to help plant about a dozen trees in the park on Saturday, Nov. 11, 2017.

Stan Cheyne's first act after securing election to Delmont Borough Council was to jump right back into his previous gig: the borough recreation board.

Cheyne and recreation board officials seek volunteers to help plant about a dozen trees Saturday at Newhouse Park.

“We have, I think, 11, all Pennsylvania native sycamore and oak trees,” Cheyne said.

The planting will be the final project of a state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources grant that also funded new playground equipment at the park, which is on Newhouse Park Road just off Stotler Road.

Planting will begin at 8:30 a.m., Cheyne said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
