Merit Badge Monday Next Monday - May 21st- Time to sign-up - final Merit Badge Monday of the Year!

Posted on May 17 2018 - 11:04am

The next and final Merit Badge Monday for this year will be on May 21st.  Please submit your requests for what merit badges you would like to work on.

As of now the merit badges that are being offered are Communications and Family Life.  Both are focused on continuing work on partials that are already started.

Merit Badge Mondays are an opportunity for scouts to connect with merit badge counselors to start new merit badges or to complete those pervasively pesky partials that seem to proliferate profusely. 

So sign-up now and sign-up early! (and of course I know some will sign-up late)...
