The Greenville Fire Protection District hosted an open house Sunday at the firehouse on Harris Avenue. As part of the event, the Girl Scouts recognized Carley Sutton, of Greenville, for achieving her Gold Award – the highest honor bestowed by the Girl Scouts. Sutton unveiled the project she worked on as part of qualifying for the Gold Award.
In 2010 Carley’s older brother, Evan, constructed a concrete slab with barbecue grills and picnic tables on the firehouse grounds for his Eagle Scout project. For her project, Carley designed a pavilion over the picnic area.
She told WGEL she would like to see it used, “by firefighters and the public for recreational purposes, or quiet lunches. Anything like that as long as it’s used and is a comfortable place for people to be.”
Carley Sutton is the daughter of Greenville Fire Captain Jim Sutton and his wife, Sherry.
