American Business Merit Badge
Interested in earning the American Business Merit Badge?  Virtual sessions are being organized with Troop 129 Merit Badge Counselor Sean Heather.  The plan would be to organize those interested scouts into small groups, meet three to four times over a virtual platform, and have a few independent work/study assignments between sessions.  We are looking to kick off these group sessions in mid-April with the aim of wrapping up by mid to late May.  If you are interested, please email Scoutmaster Gutierrez, so he can arrange a Blue Card for you.
