Girl Scouts donate Buddy Benches for Lakeview

SOLON– Fifth grade Girl Scout Troop 5122 built and painted two Buddy Benches for Lakeview Elementary. A Buddy Bench is a bench that is colorful. When a child who needs a friend sits down on it, students see the person on the Buddy Bench and ask them to come play. The Girl Scouts made a video skit to show future Lakeview students how the Buddy Bench works. The girls thank Sherwin-Williams for donating the paint and other supplies, and their parents for helping with the project. The Buddy Benches were the girls’ project to earn their Bronze Award, the highest award Junior Girl Scouts can earn.
