Arbor Day Celebration in Sidney

posted Apr 4, 2019, 7:13 AM by Village Sidney

Sidney will hold its annual Arbor Day Celebration on Friday, April 26, 2019 at the Pavilion at Keith Clark Park on River Street beginning at 10:00 am.
Music will be provided by the Sidney Elementary Band under the direction of Amy Hoxie followed by a brief welcome address by Lorrie Roach, Chairperson of Sidney’s Shade Tree Commission.

The Tree City Recognition Award and Tree City USA flag recognizing Sidney as a Tree City for the 23rd Year will be accepted by Mayor Andy Matviak. To receive this honor, a community must establish a commission to actively work with forestry personnel and the Village Department of Public Works to care for and manage public trees. They provide clear guidance for planting, maintaining and removing trees from streets, parks and other public spaces in the community.

Forester Scott Moxham, from the Stanford office of the Department of Environmental Conservation will give a short but interesting talk on his work with protecting the trees and forests of New York State.

Fifth grade students who are members of the Sidney School Districts Green Thumb Club will present their Arbor Day posters depicting Habitats for Bats, the theme of Arbor Day 2019.  This active student club is under the guidance of Josh Gray

The culmination activity of the Arbor Day Celebration will be the planting of a tree in honor of Mike Mercurio, who has been a member of the Public Works Department for the Village of Sidney for 30 years, serving as Superintendent for the past 7 years. Since 1994, trees have been planted in dedication to individuals and groups throughout Keith Clark Park and other areas of the village.  Each of these Arbor Day trees bears a plaque providing information on the dedication.  Tree locations for the past years will be noted on the Arbor Day program as well as information on the Shade Tree Commission, its mission and activities to fulfill the requirements to be designated Tree City USA.

The Delaware County Soil & Water Conservation District in Walton has provided young sapling trees that will be distributed at the conclusion of the program and the planting of the 2019 Arbor Day Tree.

Sidney’s Shade Tree Commission is currently seeking residential locations for planting new trees along the utility strip right of way along the front of properties. Sidney residents may contact the village office or Shade Tree Commission members Lorrie Roach, Nancy Redente, David Honsaker and Jane Cole for information on this upcoming spring and fall planting program. A variety of free trees will be offered and planted at no cost to the homeowner.

The Shade Tree Commission and Village of Sidney are inviting residents and friends to attend this special Arbor Day celebration on Friday, April 26 at 10 am. The quote for Sidney’s 2019 Arbor Day is Plant a Tree and see the Mother Earth Smile.

Baseball and softball season coming up we wanted to give the players a chance to improve their baseball/softball skills. We have reserved the Sidney Middle school gym and below is the schedule for the grade levels we will be working with. Kids should bring gloves and bats if they have them. The girls will be coached by Jamie Youngs, who is Sidney’s softball modified coach, and the boys will be coached by Andy Kozak, who is one of Sidney’s varsity baseball assistants. We would love to have parent volunteers interested in coaching to be there to help and possibly learn some drills and coaching points to use during the season. Teams, practice and game schedules will be coming out within the next couple weeks. If your child can make it that would be great, it is not required to play this season. The schedule is as follows;
