Family Life Merit Badge

Posted on Jan 23 2016 - 10:45pm
To all those interested in the Family Life merit badge:

These are the steps you will need to complete in order to participate in the class on Sat. Feb. 27 from 10:00-11:30a.m.
1. Purchase the merit badge pamphlet, or download a copy of it, or check it out of our troop library, or borrow a friend's copy!
2. Read the merit badge pamphlet before Feb. 27 and BRING IT WITH YOU to class.
3. Print off your merit badge workbook pages, complete item 2, and BE SURE TO BRING THE WORKBOOK PAGES TO CLASS.
We will have a fun time working through what we can as a group that morning, and then I will explain the work that each scout will need to do with his family.  This badge will be finished at varying future dates by the scouts, according to their completion of requirements.  They will simply need to schedule a meeting with me individually as they finish in order to get signed off. 
Scouts, you may wear your class B shirts with blue jeans to class.  
Mrs. Osinkosky
