Merit Badge College Opportunity – Immediate action needed

International Paper (IP) and the Chickasaw Council, Boy Scouts of America are partnering to offer a Merit Badge College for Boy Scouts registered in the Chickasaw Council. It will take place on Saturday, November 3, 2018 in Tower III (6420 Poplar Avenue). The college will run from 9:15 a.m. to 4 p.m. IP professionals will teach all of the merit badges. As these classes will take place over most of the day, only one merit badge registration per Scout will be accepted. Merit badges to be offered will be:

  • Pulp and Paper
  • Forestry
  • Sustainability
  • Citizenship in the World

Scouts interested in taking a merit badge should call Mr. Brent Snyder at 409-7637 to discuss their interest. He will then make the registration. There are only 8 Scouts allowed per class so call him immediately if you are interested. We are being given advance notice but a Council-wide announcement will be made on Monday. The cost is $10.00 per Scout and lunch will be provided. You may pay Mr. Fred Lee, the troop treasurer on Tuesday.


Backpacking Trip Reminders:
