Relaying all the Time

This past weekend, despite the heat, we made our way to the track at Illinois Valley Central High School for this year’s Relay for Life of Chillicothe.  We had quite the showing of Crew 91ers and played a supporting role in many different capacities.

We kicked off the morning helping to clean out the concession stand.  There was a ridiculous amount of dust and the nacho cheese machine hadn’t been cleaned before the stand was closed for the season! Once the stand was cleaned we made our way to the football field to set up games for the kids.

Though there were not as many kids in the past that did not stop us from having a good time.  We blew bubbles, jumped in the bouncy house, played with the water, attempted Hilly Billy Golf and had ourselves a grand old time.

Yes, yes, we were there to walk the track and we did that too we just enjoyed ourselves in all the different activities.  Derick even participated in the 5K Glow Run and came in first place!  After Relay we made our way to the Bannister’s lawn and camped out.  Two individuals, who will remain nameless, stayed up through the night.  The crazies!

We had another successful year raising $2,170.37 for Chillicothe’s Relay for Life!  All in all, a wonderful way to spend a weekend!

One Badge at a Time

Music Merit BadgeIt takes 21 Merit Badges to attain the rank of Eagle Scout.  There are 10 required badges and the other 11 badges can be selected based on personal interests.  One by one the required badges are sewn onto the Merit Badge Sash and soon the non-requireds join their brothers  to make a complete set.  The time, the dedication and the knowledge gained on the path might be a long one but full of excitement along the way.  Congratulations to Trevor for completing one more merit badge as he works towards the full set of 21!
