On Saturday, March 5th at 2:00pm at Christ Church in Manlius. There will be a Celebration of Life for David Whyte. As David played a big role in the church this will be a traditional service but rather than being sad the hope is to celebrate all that David meant to so many people. Four voices will talk during the service from the four area of David’s life, family, work, scouts and church.
Also as part of the service bulletin there will be a book of remembrances, so if you have a memory, funny story, or recollection you’d like to share you can email it directly to the church at email@example.com the subject line Celebration of Life David Whyte.
Would you like to earn Metalworking, Woodworking, Leatherworking, First Aid, & Canoeing Merit Badges in a unique and challenge setting? Then the new Rendezvous camp is the program for you. Even if you already have these merit badges this program can still be for you. Challenge yourself to live the life of the mid 1800s “Mountain Men” for a full week. If you are interested, click below for more information.
The new merit badge encourages Scouts to explore important topics around diversity, equity, inclusion and ethical leadership and learn why these qualities are important in society and in Scouting. Beginning July 1, 2022, the Citizenship in Society merit badge will be required for any youth seeking to achieve the prestigious Eagle Scout rank.
Application for merit badge counselors are being accepted now, but this isn't your run of the mill process. Counselors will be put through a rigorous review process and once accepted will be required to attend a special training. Please contact the Service Center for more info.
