Welding Merit Badge to be Offered

Troops in the Longhouse Council have the opportunity to earn the Welding Merit Badge under the tutelage of Longhouse Council Welding Champions Joe Bouchey and Ron Mills

In 2012 the BSA developed a new merit badge on welding. Lincoln Electric, who extends this opportunity to the Longhouse Council, is a proud sponsor of the BSA.

To make arrangements for your Unit or Troop to participate in the Welding Merit Badge, contact Joe Bouchey (315) 323-1243, e-mail shiconn@yahoo.com or Ron Mills (315) 882-4484, email ravenheart4444@yahoo.com .
