YOUTH SPOTLIGHT – ERIN McQUEEN
Erin McQueen has almost completed her project for her Girl Scout Gold Award (comparable to Eagle Scout in the Boy Scout system) and her service project to develop a community meditation garden on the grounds here at Midway Baptist Church. She completed her first phase which was to collect 400 pounds of plastic tops to make a bench. Erin, June Baker, and Girl Scout troop leader, Tonya Lee, (and a few others) headed to Evansville, Indiana to turn in the tops. They enjoyed the trip and were very excited to finally see the bench.
Erin wants to thank Evan who was at the church and was available to lift the very heavy 187 pound bench from the trailer. The bench will be placed in the front of the church, in the area near the dogwood tree as a place for not only the church but those in the community to enjoy. Erin would like to thank Tonya and Mike Lee for driving to Indiana, Boy Scout Troop 1 for letting her use their trailer, and all who helped her collect the 400 pounds of bottle caps. Make sure you check out the garden coming soon and admire the wonderful bench.
