In the Summer of 2021, Mikayla Hicklin earned her gold award through the Girl Scout Program. Mikayla has been a member of the girl scouts for 13 years and previously achieved her bronze and silver awards. The gold award is the highest achievement in scouts, and she earned it through her efforts to create Book-Sharing Boxes and place them in 6 of the Township Parks. Mikayla hopes these boxes will encourage kindness and imagination in the younger generations of our community, as well as help others learn and gain respect for books.
Book-Sharing Locations: Brightbill Park - 126 Carolyn Street Centennial Acres Park - 4291 Continental Drive Kings Crossing Park - Churchill Road Kohl Memorial Park - 1050 Dowhower Road Koons Park - 6030 Larue Street George Park - 300 Nyes Road
In addition, the Kiwanis Club of Linglestown Area has adopted the program and will ensure the boxes are maintained and filled with donated books each week.
