Scouts & Friends,
Those of you who are working on your Eagle-required Citizenship in the World Merit Badge have an opportunity to meet some of those requirements in an easy and interesting way.
Ambassador Sirchan Siv will be speaking at the Bush Library on Saturday, November 10. Here are the details:
*9:15 AM- Those from Troop 802 will meet in fountain/garden circle area in front of the Bush Library. We will enter the library and be seated as a group, following Library staff directions. Each Scout/family will need to arrange their own transportation to the Bush Library. Note that you will be able to buy discounted tickets to the library’s exhibits for that day.
9:30 – Doors open at the George Bush Library. Bush Library staff will be available to direct guests to the Bush Library theater. Scouts and Scout leaders will be seated to the front and parents and siblings will be seated to the rear.
9:55 – Pledge of Allegiance and Scout Oath led by Scouts.
10:00 – Remarks by Ambassador Siv followed by Q&A with the audience Ambassador.
10:45 – Event concludes. Ambassador Siv will proceed to the rotunda to inscribe copies of Golden Bones. Scouts and their families are then invited to visit the George Bush Library for the group discount of $5.00 per person.
Location: The event with Ambassador Siv will take place in the theater at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum on the campus of Texas A&M University.
Parking: Free parking will be available at the George Bush Library. Please park in lot PA41 or PA43. Please see http://transport.tamu.edu/parking/maps/campus.pdf for further information.
Scouts & their families are welcome to attend. Please reply back/e-mail Eric Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org with the number attending. I know it’s almost a month away, but the sooner I get the Bush folks a head count, the better prepared they can be.
So please reply back by Oct 20 *IF* you are going and how many are going. If you’d like more details, please ask- I’ll answer what I can. I can’t provide a concrete list of what requirements will be met, as I do not know exactly what Ambassador Siv will be talking about.
