UPDATE ON MERIT BADGE OPPORTUNITIES

Posted on Sep 11 2016 - 12:40am
UPDATE ON MERIT BADGE OPPORTUNITIES
Parents:
Based on the feedback requested a couple months ago via Troop eblast and Troop website, we only have seven confirmed and approved merit badge counselors within Troop 167.  Others have expressed interest in becoming a merit badge counselor. As you can see from the attached spreadsheet, there are many merit badges for which the Troop does not have an in-house counselor.  Please review the list and see where your skill sets would be served well in teaching Scouts a particular merit badge.
 
To qualify as a merit badge counselor, you must register as an adult Scouter and be approved by the council advancement committee for each merit badge listed on the Merit Badge Counselor Application (attached). A merit badge counselor does not have to pay a registration fee, but must complete an Adult Application (attached) for position code 42, fill out the Merit Badge Counselor Information form, and complete BSA Youth Protection training.
 
Scouts:
As you know, earning merit badges is a key component of rank advancement for Scouts, as well as a means to learning new skills and knowledge.  There are multiple ways a Scout can access merit badges (Merit Badge University, Massawepie, Troop merit badge counselors, merit badge counselors within the area, Rochester Museum & Science Center, etc.).

Hi Troop!
First I would like to start by thanking those of you who have donated funds to my Eagle Project. I really appreciate your support.  So far we have raised $330, a great start! I would also like to say that the link to the site has changed.  The new link is:
To get to the site, you need to use the link, because there is no Facebook profile connected with the project.  It does not come up in the search results if you go directly to the site. Thank you for your patience if you have tried to look under the site, and thank you for all the donations made to date!

Eagle Project - Fundraising - Daniel Waldman

Posted on Sep 11 2016 - 12:39am
Hello Troop!
I am working on my Eagle Scout project.  It is a raised boardwalk that will allow hikers in Lehigh Valley Park to cross a marshy area that is often flooded. This project is somewhat expensive due to the metal stanchions that we will be using, as well as the length of the boardwalk (150 feet).  In total, the entire project will cost around $3000.  The money will be used to purchase supplies for the project. This is a very costly project, but when it rains, the area that the boardwalk will cross is filled with almost a foot of water, making the train inaccessible to hikers and bikers.  Having this boardwalk constructed will allow for easier crossing of the marsh. To help with the fundraising I have set up a GoFundMe account, run by Victor Hiking Trails. I was hoping for a donation of five or ten dollars per person and we can help the hikers cross the marsh safely and without getting wet.  
 
 
 
Thank you very much for your help! 
Daniel Waldman
