BROCTON - The Friends of the Ahira Hall Memorial Library invited the community for a fun-filled evening to celebrate the Month of the Young Child in April.
The Brownies and Juniors from Girl Scouts of Western New York Troop 20025 in Brocton used their leadership skills to share what they have learned on their "Journeys" - for the Brownies, "Wonders of Water," and the Juniors, "Get Moving!" The focus was on saving the planet with crafts and activities that included: creating an earth painting out of coffee filters, teaching each scout what her carbon footprint is and how to shrink it, singing songs about water, writing energy pledges and trivia about decomposition.
In addition, the Girl Scouts donated four new books to the library on energy conservation, saving the planet and recycling. Some of these items are currently on display at the Ahira Hall Memorial Library.
