District Merit Badge Night, Thursday, Oct 9, 7pm - 9pm

The North Star District holds Merit Badge Nights on a monthly basis for scouts to earn or work on merit badges. The merit badge for October is Citizenship in the Nation which is a required Eagle merit badge. It is in your interest to get a copy of the Merit Badge booklet either from the Troop's library or purchase one from the Scout Shop. You should also print out the merit badge worksheet in advance and do as much of the worksheet as you can before the class next week. Get a signed merit badge "Blue Card" from Jerry at Monday's troop meeting. Do not expect to complete this badge in one night. Uniforms are required at the class.  It will be held at Holy Spirit Catholic Church (515 South Albert St, St. Paul.  Just a couple blocks East of Snelling Avenue on Randolph) on the lower level. Enter on the east side of the building from the church's parking lot. There is  no fee to attend.
