Citizenship in the Community Merit Badge Meeting – Monday 4/27

Any scout working on the Citizenship in the Community merit badge should attend a meeting Monday evening at the church from 7:00pm to 7:30pm to present their group project.  We do not have a regularly scheduled meeting because of the weekend camping trip, but agreed last Monday to complete this requirement.  You must be at the meeting and present with your group to get credit for the requirement.  The meeting will only last 30 minutes, so be sure you have someone to pick you up as there will be no regular scout meeting afterwards.  I look forward to seeing your work! – David Knoble.
