DETI Employee Volunteers Make Positive Impact at Jerome Park

The new pavilion will provide a site at Jerome Park for community activities, such as picnics, reunions and the county’s Fit for Life program.

More than 20 Dominion Energy Transmission, Inc. (DETI) employees participated in a volunteer event at Jerome Park in Elkland, PA to construct a new pavilion as part of the company’s Energizing Our Communities campaign.

Most of the work on the pavilion was accomplished, but many DETI employees plan to support completion of the pavilion project after hours and on weekends. The new pavilion, which will include electricity and bathrooms, will allow the facility to be used for the Tioga County Partnership for Community Health's Fit For Life and Summer Feedings programs — which focus on healthy physical activity and nutrition — as well as community events, family reunions and picnics.

Employee volunteers also constructed new or repaired older picnic tables, cleaned the park area and stained and sealed the timbers surrounding the playground. Employees took the lead in designing the structures, construction management and material acquisition.

The Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation contributed a $5,000 grant to the project.
