Consider being a Merit Badge Counselor

Posted on Mar 17 2018 - 3:08pm
 A great way to get to know the boys and to provide service to the troop.  I have attached a list of our current badges and their counselors.   The boxes in yellow show an urgent need as we would like to have at least 2 counselors for each eagle required  MB.   I have also provided a link to the full MB list.   http://www.scouting.org/meritbadges.aspx   Do you have a special interest that you would like to share with the troop?  Let us know and we can get you started.  Unsure what a merit badge counselor does?  Concerned  you do not have enough time or expertise?   Let me know you would like more information- no commitment required!
Merit Badge Application attached.
Please respond to Susan or Desiree  at advancement@bsatroop347.org if you can help.


Sean Byrne’s Eagle Scout Project

Posted on Mar 13 2018 - 8:50am

I am working on my Eagle Scout project and will need to get a group of about 6 scouts that would be willing to help out. My projects spans across multiple days. These days will take place anywhere from now to the last day of May. It involves sanding, staining, varnishing, and assembly. It also counts towards your service hours just in case you were wondering. If you happen to be interested and would be open to coming out on certain days please let me know. I will also need an adult or two for transportation and other duties. I will have more updates for the people that would like to help out.
