Citizenship in the Community!

citizenship_in_the_communityA nation is a patchwork of communities that differ from each other and may be governed differently. But regardless of how local communities differ, they all have one point in common: In the United States, local government means self-government. Good citizens help to make decisions about their community through their elected local officials.

We begin work on this badge on March 2nd.  This badge is one of the 13 required for the Eagle Scout rank.

Also in the works … FENCING!
