The Donaldson Corporation will be hosting a Merit Badge Day again, but the date will be changing.  In the past it has been held in November, but this year it will be held in February.  As details are finalized we will get these out to units, but we wanted you to be aware of the 3 month shift.  If you aren’t familiar with the Merit Badge day it is an event run by the Donaldson Corporation in Bloomington. The event hosts close to 200 Boy Scouts and offers many of the hard to get technical Merit Badges.
