Merit Badge Opportunities
We have two Merit Badge opportunities that have come up as a few scouts have requested to work on Cooking and Stamp Collecting. The counselors are asking if other scouts might also be interested in getting involved.
Cooking – This is an Eagle Required Merit Badge. Mr. McDonald is the counselor and is working out a pan to run the badge virtually where possible.
Stamp Collecting – This is an elective Merit Badge to learn about a great hobby! Mrs. Resciniti is the counselor.
If you have any interest in working on either of these Merit Badges please email Mr. Wood by the end of this week (July 25th). You can always decide to work on them later, but we want to get this group going as soon as we can.
Need to Visit a Museum? Do it Online!
Currently, due to COVID-19, the BSA is allowing virtual visits to count for some rank and Merit Badge requirements. The Scouting Magazine blog has a great post for 8 different museums that offer online tours that can count.
Also, if you need to watch a local town council meeting, check to see if they have the meetings online open to the public! You might be able to watch from the comfort of your couch.
