Muscatatuck District Recognition Dinner

It’s not too soon to mark your calendar for the first Muscatatuck District Recognition Dinner. The district program team is working hard to plan the event for February 11th at the First United Methodist Church, 240 Poplar St., North Vernon. Please join us for a catered meal and fellowship as we recognize our 2019 District Award of Merit recipients, other volunteers for their outstanding service to Scouting and their communities, and celebrate all that is great in our new 9 county district.

Muscatatuck Merit Badge Day

The annual Muscatatuck Merit Badge Day will be held Saturday, February 22nd. The location for this year’s great event will be the same as last year, The Jennings County Middle School, 820 W. Walnut Street, North Vernon. Sessions will run from 9:00 – 3:55 as in the past and please plan to arrive with enough time to check in and start on time.  This year we will offer more than 15 merit badges including, Photography, Disabilities Awareness, Environmental Science, Engineering, Personal Management and many more.  This is a great event put on by the Muscatatuck Program committee and offers a great start for new Scouts to begin the trail to Eagle while also allowing the older Scouts to earn additional Merit Badges of interest. Adult trainings will also be offered including but not limited to a class on the dos and don’ts of the Board of Review process. Lunch will be offered by the Muscatatuck District Committee and District Commissioners at a nominal fee and all proceeds will go into our district account to add to the annual program “perks” we will be able to offer our Scouters throughout the year. Stay tuned for more information to come out soon regarding the Merit Badges and courses being offered this year.
