Citizenship in the Community Merit Badge

Over the last two Mondays, we have been working on requirements towards the Eagle required merit badge, Citizenship in the Community.  So far we have completed the following requirements.  1, 2a, and are working on 5.  Tonight, we will be working towards completing requirements: 2b, 5, and 6.  We will be attending a county council meeting on Tuesday, March 15th.  We will be meeting at the church at 5PM in order to attend the meeting at 6PM.  If you are late, you will have to find your own ride, so please be on time.  Council member, Bob Grabowski, has entered a resolution in support of Troop 856, and it will be presented at that time, live on TV.  Yes, your sons will be on TV.  We would like for all of the troop members to attend this presentation in their complete uniforms.  That will include shirt, pants, neckerchief and belt.  This is the first time that our troop has ever received such a prestigious recognition, so we do ask that everyone attends.  Parents and family members are also welcome to attend this special event.  After the resolution is presented to the troop, the troop members will sit through a portion of the council meeting to complete requirement 3a of the merit badge.
