Delhi Township Parks & Recreation
The Delhi Township Parks and Recreation Department has established a "Memorial Tree Program" whereby a tree can be planted in any of the Delhi Township Parks in the name of a Delhi Township resident. The types of trees being considered for the program are native Ohio trees such as:
|Blackgum||Cucumber Magnolia||Norway Spruce|
|Pin Oak||Red Bud||Red Maple|
|Red Oak||Sugar Maple||Yellow Buckeye|
The Memorial Tree Plaque is located in the Glen Carder Lodge entryway. For every tree purchased, an individual leaf-shaped plate will be engraved and placed on a plaque (image below). The engraving will consist of the name of the person, the date of the event, and the name of the donor. The donor may request an area of a park for the tree to be planted, however the final decision will be made by the Parks and Recreation Department keeping in mind the type of tree and maintaining open area where appropriate.
The cost of a Memorial Tree is $250. This includes the memorial plaque, engraving, purchase, and planting of the tree. To order a memorial tree, please complete, print, and mail the order form, accompanied with your payment, to the address below. Please include valid contact information so we can keep you updated with the status of your order as trees are planted in bulk only once or twice per year.
For more information on the Memorial Tree Program, please contact the Parks & Recreation Department.
A Memorial Bench can be purchased for the amount of $500. Memorial benches will remain on grounds until they become so old that they become unsafe or unacceptable from an aesthetic standpoint. If a bench has to be removed, the donor will be informed. If the donor chooses to replace the bench, a replacement bench can be provided at the donation level that is stated in the most current memorial policy.
PITCH, HIT & RUN is intended to encourage youth participation and emphasize the "FUN" element of baseball competition. Since there is no registration fee for this program, every boy and girl will have a chance to compete. Participants will compete in three important aspects of baseball: pitching, hitting & running.
The four age groups are: 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, and 13-14 with boys and girls competing together (age is determined as of July 17, 2008).
Youngsters may advance through four levels of competition – Local, Sectional, Team Championship (Major League Ballpark) and National Finals (2008 MLB All-Star Game).
- The competition is free for all participants.
- All boys and girls, ages 7-14, are welcome to participate.
- All participants must provide a copy of a valid birth certificate or baptismal record for age for verification when asked. Failure to provide proof of age may result in disqualification.
- All participants must sign a registration/waiver form.
Pitch - The PITCH portion of the program will test how accurately a competitor can throw strikes from 45 feet to a designated "Strike Zone" target.
Hit - The HIT portion of the program will test a competitor's ability to hit a baseball from a stationary tee, along a tape measure from home plate, toward straight-away centerfield. Hits will be measured for distance and accuracy.
Run - The RUN portion of the program will measure a competitor's speed in a sprint from second base, around third, and across home plate.
