Boy Scout Troop 63 2012

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.

The Middle School Summer Reading Program “You are Here to Learn” has been so much fun this year. The kids had a fantastic time making homemade egg noodles.  They were hmm-hmm  good.   There was also a cake decorating day!  They learned the tools & techniques needed to make frosting and decorate cakes.  The last day of the program is July 27th at 10:00 am.  The kids will be learning a little “No Bake Baking.”   All kids grades 4 & up are welcome.
