Boy Scout Merit Badge Day
The Boy Scout Merit Badge Day was a great way to serve and to take part in Leadership, Friendship and Service! A group of Alpha Beta Brothers met up with the St. Francis University brothers at their campus to help boy scouts complete their final requirements for badges in their areas of interest. I volunteered to work with the boys completing their astronomy badge. I was extremely impressed with the boys’ prior astronomy knowledge—they knew more than I did. In addition, I felt that by helping them with their activities, I learned a ton about the universe, stars, our solar system, and extraterrestrial life! And not to mention, playdough planets make everything a lot more fun! We took a break for lunch halfway through the day and had a chance to bond more with the St. Francis brothers—it was so inspirational to see their passion for LFS. It made me realize how happy I am to be part of a nation-wide service organization and how powerful and impactful our service is—not only as individual chapters, but as one national organization.
