WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -— Girl Scout Junior Troop 12940 is donating a "buddy bench" to Williamstown Elementary School in honor of a friend and classmate who passed away at the beginning of the school year.

The troop, composed of 12 fourth-graders from Williamstown and Lanesborough, presented a slide show to explain the donation to the Williamstown Elementary School Committee at its June 8 meeting.
