MECHANICSBURG – Kaylee Cantrell, a 6th grader at Mechanicsburg Middle School and member of Girl Scout Troop #21294, completed her Bronze Award community service project this summer. The Bronze Award is the highest award that can be given to a 4th or 5th grade Junior in Girl Scouts.

Cantrell chose to build and install a Free Little Library at Goshen Memorial Park for the community to use. She met with the Park Board to receive approval and discuss plans then worked throughout the summer with her grandfather, Robert Pierce, to build the library. Recently, she held a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially donate the library to the community.

The remaining Juniors in Troop 21294 are collecting plastic bottle caps and lids to recycle into a children’s size picnic table to sit beside the little library. Those who would like to help by donating lids are asked to email GSTroop21294@gmail.com.
