Do you know a Boy Scout who needs any of the Citizenship Merit Badges for his Eagle?
Make sure you come out to the Constitution Week Scout Clinic next Wednesday, September 19! Councilmembers Jenn Daniels and Victor Petersen are the Citizenship in the Community instructors. They are great!
This is one of the largest Scouting events in the State every year and it’s right here in Gilbert!
Registration is at 6:30pm, classes are from 7-8:30pm. $5/class. Full details and online registration are HERE.
Did you know that Jared Taylor, candidate for the Gilbert Town Council, who has served on the board of Constitution Week USA since 2004, is the organizer and host of the Scout Clinic? He is probably responsible for helping over 5,000 Scouts learn how to be a better citizen.
According to Mr. Taylor, "This is an event to teach Boy Scouts (12-18 years old) good citizenship as taught in the Citizenship in the Community, Nation, and World Merit Badges by seven different instructors. This has now become one of the largest Boy Scout events in Arizona every year attracting Scouts from not just Gilbert, but from the whole valley, and even out of State. Last year’s participation was about 1,800. This is held at Mesquite Junior High. You should come out to our next event…it’s on 9//19 and 9/26! Over the last few years, we’ve helped similar groups set up Scout Clinics in Ohio and New Mexico providing all the materials for free."
