Heard over the back fence: Three cheers for Emily

By From page B1 | May 09, 2014

SPECIAL VOLUNTEER: Emily Johnston is the “Featured Volunteer” for the Georgetown Library. The “Between Friends” newsletter described Emily as follows: “We found pretty, blond 14-year-old Emily Johnston shelving books in our Georgetown Library. She comes in once a week to help shelve. At other times, she is a home-school student with the ARCS program. She has lived in Georgetown for about two years and is interested in history. Emily also did a great job decorating for the library’s Dr. Seuss birthday party so we hope to have her help to decorate at future library parties.” Congratulations, Emily, for being selected as the “Featured Volunteer,” and thank you for your community service.
