Earn the Coin Collecting Merit Badge this Summer

Posted on Jul 18 2019 - 10:10pm

While you are enjoying your summer vacation, you may be able to earn the coin collecting merit badge. See the attached sheet with summer requirements. For example, if you visit a museum that has a coin or currency exhibit, that will count for Requirement 6a. Just take some photos and write down some notes what the exhibit is about. At the end of summer we will have a 1-2 hour meeting to checkoff the homework and cover the remaining requirements. Contact Mr. White if you have any questions.
