Indian Lore Merit Badge Opportunity

The following was forwarded from the Staten Island Museum.

Hi, please pass on the word that the SI Museum (75 Stuyvesant place) loves when scouts come to visit for a Pack or Troop activity. Our Lenape lesson is excellent and any scout working on Indian Lore MB can meet a lot if not all of the requirements during that visit. I am a MB counselor for that one and I can arrange to be there for anyone who need me there. Thanks. Plus there are many other activities the scouts would enjoy.
