Tarentum’s Greg Blythe Friendship Garden

Two events are taking place this weekend at Tarentum’s community garden.

A ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday to rededicate the garden, now known as Tarentum’s Greg Blythe Friendship Garden.

The Tarentum Recreation Board is sponsoring a plaque.

The garden was renamed for Blythe, one of its founders, earlier this year. Blythe, 62, former pastor of Abundant Joy Fellowship, died from cancer in November.

On Saturday, beginning at 8 a.m., Chris Ratliff of Boy Scout Troop 180 will be working on his Eagle Scout project at the garden.

The project includes construction of benches and compost bins and a general cleanup of the garden.

Volunteers are welcome to help.

The garden is located next to Dreshar Stadium on First Avenue and across from Bridge Street.

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.
