Nate Brangan will lead a hike around Shelburne this Saturday. The hike will include visiting Shelburne Falls on the Laplatte River and some of the other wonders of our town. This scout-let hike will be more than 5 miles and include a map and compass (2nd Class requirement 1b) and will be counted as a troop activity. If you want to join Nate on this journey, please be at the Scout Barn at 10:00 a.m. Remember to pack a lunch, have your 10 essentials, and have a charged cell phone.
Scholarship Merit badge:
A scout basically needs to get good grades, or improve their grades; participate in an extracurricular activity; get verification that they have behaved at school; do a little research about education; and write a 250-300 word essay.
The same goes for the Sports Merit Badge. If a scout plays two sports in a year’s time, he is eligible for this badge. There is some prep time needed for at least one season of sports, so if you plan on playing a sport this spring, please let me know and we’ll get you squared away.
Some scouts started the Citizenship in the Community merit badge on Town Meeting night. I want to fast track this badge, so we will have a special merit badge session on Saturday, March 23. This badge requires eight hours of community service. If there is a town department or charitable organization you’re interested in helping out, please contact them immediately.
