Children can celebrate Dr. Seuss' 110th birthday at Park Building

| Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014, 9:00 p.m.

Children ages 10 and younger are invited to a birthday celebration for Dr. Seuss on Sunday, from 2 to 4 p.m., in the Park Building on Broadway Boulevard.

The free event, sponsored by the borough's Parks and Recreation Committee, will celebrate Dr. Seuss's 110th birthday and the importance of reading.

Children will listen to their favorite Dr. Seuss stories, participate in hands-on-activities and enjoy treats. There is no charge, and children must be accompanied by an adult.

Volunteers needed

St. Paul's Meals on Wheels is in need of volunteers.

Sign-ups for those wanting to play baseball or softball for the Pitcairn Baseball/Softball Association will be held Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. at Fire Hall No. 1, 100 South Center Ave.

Children and youths ages 4 to 18 from Pitcairn or surrounding communities may register.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
