Boy Scouts Troop 85 Update
The Action Troop played a very important role during the Kiwanis Kids Day. There were more than 2,500 kids that participated in this event. The Scouts were able to recruit new members and show off their scouting skills.
While the other Scouts were busy at the Kiwanis Kids Day, Joshua Livengood and Jacob Kuzyk completed their NRA Hunting Safety License Class with flying colors.
How are you doing on finishing up those merit badges started? Need Help? Please see Mr. Mullins if you have a partial merit badge to be completed. There are several Scouts that started a merit badge, now is the time to get it done.
If you are an adult that would like to help a Scout with a merit badge, please let Mr. Mullins know what merit badge you have knowledge in.
