Family Life Merit Badge

Posted on Sep 7 2014 - 8:49pm
Have you completed your Family Life merit badge yet?  Did you know it is an Eagle Required merit badge?  For boys that need this badge and wish to start working on it, we will start a group next troop meeting.  If you wish to join the group, email mbc@troop416.us.  We'll put together the list of boys who plan to work this badge.  If for some reason the group is too large we'll choose by boys who are higher rank but still need the merit badge.

Information and requirements for the badge are listed at http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Family_Life.  You can acquire the merit badge book at the Scout shop, online, or now for instant download on Amazon to Kindle or Kindle reader on another device.
