Phillips Wharf Environmental Center shared Silver Linings's photo. ...

If you've shopped in our stores recently, you may have met Haley. She's splitting her Summer between Silver Linings and Phillips Wharf Environmental Center (PWEC), where she's working as an intern. This week, Haley assisted Ken in attaching plaques to the kayaks that Silver Linings donated to PWEC earlier in the year. Haley and the other PWEC staff members use the kayaks to lead school kids on at-sea adventures, as well as for training purposes. We will certainly miss Haley when she returns to Grove City College in the Fall to begin her senior year. <3
