This fall’s merit badge clinic will be on November 7 at the Palm Desert LDS Church at 72960 Parkview Drive, Palm Desert.
Here is what is being offered at this year’s clinic:
* **Citizenship in the Community** (all day class, I am the instructor)
* **Citizenship in the World** (morning class only)
* **Crime Prevention** (half-day class being offered in both morning and afternoon)
* **Cycling** (all day class)
* **First Aid** (all day class, the instructor is my friend Mal Maloney, an excellent instructor!)
* **Family Life** (sign-off only at noon; I am also the counselor for this; you can see me at a troop meeting unless you would feel more comfortable working with another counselor)
* **Painting** (all day class; the instructor of this class is Mr. Stiede who taught several of us to use an industrial power painter just last weekend, talk about FUN!)
* **Genealogy** (all day class, or as long as it goes; the instructor of this incredibly cool class is our own Mr. Philbrook)
* **Personal Management** (all day class)
This is a good opportunity to pick up one of these merit badges, especially the Eagle required ones.
The clinic will run from 8:30 a.m. (for registration) and the all day classes will end around 4 p.m. If you would like to go, please email me and I will sign you up, but hurry! The classes are filling up fast.
