Scouts from Troops 86 and 124 spent the April 10,11 weekend earning their Emergency Preparedness Merit Badge.  Boy Scouts have been learning to be "prepared" leaders in the NE Indiana Anthony Wayne Area Council for nearly-100 years.  These fine young men continue in that worthy tradition.  Being prepared to lead in any situation... and having the confidence in themselves, their skills and their fellow Scouts to do it!
