Girl Scout Troop 1776 donates new bookcase, books to Ocean Air. Rec. Center

Girl Scout Troop 1776 presented the Ocean Air Recreation Center with a new bookcase and books on Oct. 9. After selling 2,698 boxes of Girl Scout cookies at the beginning of the year, the girls decided that it would be nice to support the Recreation Center where they hold their bi-monthly meetings during the school year. The girls wanted to show their appreciation to center director Keven Wiggins (in photo at right with the  Girl Scouts) and his staff who go out of their way to make sure they have a comfortable, clean meeting place.

The books will be available for everyone to use while they are at the Recreation Center.
