This project is to benefit the children who cannot afford to purchase books for educational and recreational purposes. The organization that will receive the books is the Folsom Cordova Community Center.

I need the Troop's help to give out flyers and to gather books.

On March 18th I need more help from parents and adults to bring vehicles and drive around. 

Sign up here: 3/5/17 fliers AND 3/18/17 books.           Thanks!  - Kobish

Be a Merit Badge Counselor!

Posted on Oct 2 2016 - 6:52pm

The Merit Badge Counselor is a key player in the Boy Scout advancement program. Whatever your area of expertise or interest—whether it is a special craft or hobby (basketry, leatherwork, coin collecting), a profession (veterinary medicine, aviation, engineering), or perhaps a life skill (cooking, personal management, communications)—as a Merit Badge Counselor, you can play a vital role in stirring a young man's curiosity about that particular topic. By serving as a Merit Badge Counselor, you offer your time, knowledge, and other resources so that Scouts can explore a topic of interest.
