Boy Scout Mining in Society Merit Badge Event!
Freeport is sponsoring another Boy Scout Mining in Society Merit Badge Workshop in Miami on Saturday, 22 October 2016. It will be held at the Museum (old high school) from 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM.
Will and Pam Wilkinson are looking for volunteers to help man the different stations where Scouts will work on requirements to earn the merit badge. Please let us know if you are available to volunteer!
A summary of requirements for earning this merit badge is attached. There will be seven stations to cover the requirements (a tour of the mine will cover requirement 5). They will need at least 2 volunteers at each station; therefore, a minimum of 14 volunteers. More detailed information will be sent as they finalize the event.
