Boy Scout Troop 777 Coin Collecting Merit Badge
Sponsored by: Tucson Coin Club
By: Bruce Benoit, BSA Coin Collecting Merit Badge Counselor
.

A few months ago the Tucson Coin Club was contacted by Tucson BSA Troop 777 Leaders to conduct a clinic to assist some of their Scouts obtain the coin collecting merit badge. Both I and Larry Hamm volunteered, with Mark Stubbs as a back-up, if
needed. The clinic was held in five one hour sessions, two weeks apart, during a two month period, during June and July, 2014. Seven Scouts attended total with each attending four sessions. The clinic was held during their regular bi-monthly meetings on the East side of Tucson.

The clinic was a bit challenging due to starting and stopping each session as well as several boys not keeping up with the rest, and dealing with summer vacations and Scout camp schedules. We used the clubs Power Point® presentation as a baseline and adapted from there. It was nice working with a smaller group as we could work more one on one with the boys and do some hands on stuff as well.



Larry Hamm, Four of the Troop 777 Scouts (three not pictured), and Bruce Benoit.

Many treasured items were given to the boys, including; coins, Red and Blue books, coin holders, coin folders, magazines, and club membership brochures.  The material was donated by; the Tucson Coin Club, Eagle Eye Rare Coins, Larry Hamm, and Bruce Benoit.

I would like to thank Troop 777 for giving our club a chance to reach out to our community and share our great hobby!
