In tribute of the outstanding community service of Carolyn Cassell to the Borough of Penbrook, the parks sub-committee is raising funds to place a memorial bench and tree in Elm Street Station Park. A major renovation of the park is expected to be complete by Fall of 2019.
Carolyn gave so much of herself to many borough organizations, including the Penbrook Church of God, Penbrook Lions Club and Volunteers in Penbrook. Some of her contributions to the community include; helping to start the Lions Reading Den at Grace Church, building a memorial garden, teaching Vacation Bible School at Penbrook Church of God and organizing food drives for the UCC Manna Food Pantry with the Penbrook Leos. Carolyn was an integral part of the Little Valley Park Summer Program where she organized learning activities, speakers and field trips for the children. As a member of the Volunteers in Penbrook, Carolyn contributed to community tree lightings, Halloween parties and National Night Out.
A member and past president of the Penbrook Lions Club, Carolyn was awarded the Melvin Jones Fellowship Award, the highest recognition from the Lions Club International Foundation, given to members who have rendered outstanding community services.
Please consider making a donation to help make this remembrance possible.
