Week of April 15 and 16, 2019

Below is the schedule of activities for the week beginning April 15, 2019:

At the Advancement Ceremony, both scouters and parents have asked about the placement of the badges in the uniform.  You can go to our web site (http://scouts.7thmarkham.org).  On the right-hand side, under “Parent’s Corner”, click “Uniform Badge Placement” to see the instructions.  Personal Achievement badges (PAB) templates can also be found under “Awards and Programs”.  Again Personal Achievement badges are designed to allow Scouting youth to acquire skills and knowledge in areas that are of particular interest to them and to have that development recognized as part of their growth through Scouting. They give your child the opportunity to try something new, and to set achievable goals.
