To the Editor:

For our Girl Scout Silver Award project we, with Mr. Al Gaige’s assistance, built two bookshelves for the Berne-Knox-Westerlo pre-kindergarten students. We did this so that the children could learn how to read, as well as enjoy reading by the time they enter kindergarten.

ALBANY — Alyssa Gaige, of East Berne earned the Girl Scout Silver Award for her project investigating wheelchair accessibility in Altamont last year.

A local family’s love of nature is bringing new life to an historic camp in the Adirondacks.
