We will also host the second session of the new Citizenship in Society MB. Please remember that if you were at the July session you need to come preparded to discuss requirements 7 & 8. Please speak with your troops and see what merit badges they would like to see us offer at the September Roundtable. That information will be collected as part of the sign in process.

    If you have the latest copy of ScoutLife magazine, check out the front cover article about Riverside Troop 373/4373! Also, I’m collecting copies for the troop if you have one/some that are destined for the recycle bin. 😁
