Scout Expo, May 2014

The San Gabriel Valley Council held their annual Scout Expo, but with a new name (“Youth Expo”) and a new location (the Rose Bowl). Troop 147 usually volunteers to run an activity booth, and this year, scouts and leaders put together an Art booth. Scouts from all over could earn their Art merit badge under the tutelage of Assistant Scoutmaster Todd Dirks. Mr. Dirks is an accomplished artist and art teacher at Pasadena High and the boys had a great time in his class. At a separate table, the younger Cub Scouts and Webelos had lots of fun earning their Art belt loop. Several Troop 147 scouts and parents helped out for hours in the hot sun and deserve a lot of credit for giving up a Saturday to help out. Our scouts also earned a few merit badges of their own – not only Art, but some earned Electricity, Chess, and Fingerprinting. Check out a few pictures…
