Food Lifeline Volunteer Event

Date: Saturday, April 30
Time: 9:00AM – 11:00AM
Location: Food Lifeline
815 S 96th St
Seattle, WA 98108
Sign up sheet

This is an eye-opening lesson on food insecurity in our region and a great service opportunity.  Food lifeline is the main distributor to food banks in the region, receiving massive amounts of food (often straight from the farm) to be sorted, repackaged, and trucked to food banks around town.  The work you do during the shift will directly impact hungry people in our region the following week.  Who knows what our group’s task will be — in past years we have shoveled frozen green beans from a crate into 1-lb bags suitable for a hungry family, sorted pears, and repackaged 50 lb sacks of brownie mix into the amount a family would use for one pan of brownies.  Operating a pallet jack, working off a conveyor belt, and wearing headnets may be part of the fun!  Because of the pandemic, we have a firm cutoff of 16 volunteers total.  Please register by April 16.  (Please still indicate your interest if there are over 16 people already on the list, as we may be able to accommodate you if there are cancellations in our group.)

Swimming Merit Badge
Rank Swimming requirements

When: Saturday, December 11 – 10AM to 1PM
Where: Seattle Tennis Club

Troop XV Swimmers!  Craig and Rhys Fiebig will be hosting a Swimming MB clinic at the Seattle Tennis Club on Lake Washington.

If you don’t have the Swimming MB, and can swim, this is a great opportunity to complete this Eagle required badge.   You can also complete the Second Class and First Class swimming requirements at the same time.  Don’t waste precious time at summer camp completing this badge – use that time for more advanced water activities like Canoeing, Rowing, Lifesaving, and many other options.

Note that this session is for scouts who are already strong swimmers.   This is not a class for learning to swim.  Instead, the session is for discussing and demonstrating swimming techniques to earn the merit badge.  That’s not to say that there won’t be some learning on the fly, there will be and that’s fine, this isn’t a strict test, but scouts should arrive ready to jump in the water and be able to swim the pool’s length with ease.

Before we meet, read and watch the inline videos: The Swimming Merit Badge: Your Ultimate Guide in 2021 (scoutsmarts.com)
