Devin Brunk chose to help the Wellsville City Library with it’s building fund efforts for his Eagle Scout project. He lead Troop 63 in a fundraiser at Smokey’s Bar-B-Que to cover the cost of the materials needed to make the donation plaque. Once the funds were raised, he oversaw and assisted with the making of the plaques. The troop presented the library board with the plaque and remaining funds they had raised at the the board’s February meeting. The plaque is currently hanging in the library’s foyer. Our goal is to one day hang the plaques in a completed meeting room addition.
