ETNA GREEN — The Etna Green Town Council met last night, Tuesday, June 14, and was presented a bench honoring a longtime Etna Green Firefighter.
High School Junior and Girl Scout Morgan Ousley, of troop 10068, made a plastic bench in honor of her great-grandfather, Claude “Red” Davis, who had been a volunteer firefighter for Etna Green.
The bench was created with recycled, plastic bottle caps. Ousley hopes her project shows people that recycling and reusing can help reduce solid waste in area landfills. Ousley received the Gold Award, the highest achievement a girl scout can receive.
