We were very proud of four of our new Scouts that earned their first badge on the long trail to Eagle Scout: the Cub Scouts Bobcat Badge. Terrance, Aidan, Jamarion, and Victor earned this badge and had them presented tonight. Terrance (whom I affectionately call T-Rex) also finished his Tiger Cub patch. All four of these boys are some of my Bus Scouts. They were all reached through the bus ministry, and three of them still ride the bus to church every Sunday (the fourth now rides in with his parents).
Tonight we also presented a very special patch to the boys who were part of our original chartered Troop and Pack in 2009. They each received a “Founder Patch” that they get to wear as long as they are part of 1611. We’re very proud of these boys and the men who teach them week after week.
