Shantytown 2015

Last week we spent the week sleeping in a hastily built structure made of cardboard (lovingly named "Shantytown"). It was cold. I got sick. But it was all for a great cause! (Okay, we admit we had a lot of fun as well). Thanks to the many generous students and faculty at RIT, we managed to raise $1041.40 for Dmitri House, a Rochester homeless shelter. Homelessness is a problem that can be reversed. Thanks to everyone who made this all possible!

Merit Badge University

Last Saturday we hosted the 11th Annual Towpath District Merit Badge University. This was our second year hosting.

It was a wonderful day with scouts attending from New York, Massachusetts, and Virginia. We taught over 300 scouts from almost 60 scout units, across 10 different Councils, with 17 districts represented. We offered 20 different merit badges ranging from Emergency Preparedness to Sustainability to Chemistry. We even had one of our pledges teaching Personal Management.

All of us at Xi Zeta chapter (and some from Alpha Beta Xi and Epsilon Sigma chapters) had a wonderful time hosting this great, successful event and hope to do it again for many years to come.
