Members of Girl Scout Troop #30171 of Harveys Lake donated a “Buddy Bench” to their school playground at Lake-Noxen Elementary School. The Scouts completed requirements for the Cadette Woodworking Badge under the guidance and direction of leaders Tracy DeRemer and Morgan Fielding. Working with Rich DeRemer from Richard DeRemer Custom Woodworking, the girls designed and built the bench. The bench is a place for students feeling left out of recess activities to show other students that he/she needs a buddy. It is meant to teach children about acts of kindness as well as how to include others. From left, are Autumn Visneski, Nicole Miles, Madison Kresge, Lauren DeRemer and Emma Fielding.
