Here is an idea on how you can organize and keep track of all those award cards you have or will receive while involved with scouting.

Arrow of Light Award Plaque Procedure written by Melissa Cole, Pack 164, Yorktown Heights, NYThis is not an original project. I used many internet sources to build the final project.Materials needed for each plaque: One piece of lumber, 1” X 6” X 26”. One website I found suggested using red oak, which I’m sure would make a nicer-looking plaque. However, red oak has the following drawbacks: 1) it’s expensive, and 2) being a hard...[More]

Some of you know may know I...[More]
