Coin Collecting Merit Badge Opportunity in January PDF Print E-mail

On Saturday (11:00-5:00pm) and Sunday (10:00- 4:00pm) January 17th and 18th 2015, the Boeing Employee Coin Club is having their annual coin show at the Kent Commons, 525 4th Ave North Kent WA. Two tables will be set aside for a Young Numismatists (YN’s) display and info.  The goal of the YN table and display is to encourage and inform kids about coin collecting and answer any questions they have.  There will be a video display showing how coins are made. The gentleman working the table/display received his Eagle Scout award in 1982.  He has offered his time again during the show to assist scouts in working on their coin collecting badge. He is the same (Coin Collecting) merit badge counselor who assisted a number of Boy Scouts in completing their merit badge at last year’s show. Workshops for the Scouts to work on the Coin Collecting merit badge are Saturday (11:00-1:00pm and 2:00-4:00pm) and Sunday (10:30-12:30pm and 1:00-3:00pm).  Attending Scouts will need to attend one of the session to complete the merit badge.  Please bring a ‘Blue card’, 5 state quarters (requirement #7) and a penny collection: birth year to 2014 (Requirement #9 Option “D”).  If a scout is missing part of the birth year to 2014 set, there will be a penny search available at the YN table they may go through on their own time to complete that requirement. There is also a treasure hunt for any kid to find 6 coins to complete a type set and a free gift for just attending and visiting the YN table. For further information contact Anthony at

2014 Eagle Projects Ideas @ Soos Creek Botanical Garden PDF Print E-mail

29308 132nd Ave SE, Auburn
(a mile or so from Reber Ranch and Covington)

We are a 23 acres, non-profit, garden that was mostly planted in the 1960's and opened to the public in 2010. The Soos Creek Botanical Garden is generally open Wednesdays through Saturdays, 10am to 3pm, mid-March through mid-November. Our opening date this year is March 19th.

Scouts doing Eagle Projects may come on additional days and hours with prior notice from the Garden Director or Scout Liaison.  All projects will be designed or get design approval from the Garden Director and or Garden Manager.

Potential Eagle Projects identified for 2014:

1)  Install hand rails leading down to Soos Creek.  The area is often muddy and slippery and visitors have difficulty getting down to the Creek safely.

2)  Build storage shed to house our small John Deere Tractor and Trailer.

3)  Build a heavy arbor to hold a Wisteria Vine, which weighs hundreds of pounds and lives many decades.

4)  Build a heavy grape arbor.  Same as #3.

5)  Build a 3 sided shed, with door (attached to our Barn) to hold tables/chairs.

6)  Install Vinyl gutters to be put onto the Barn, and roof run-off from barn diverted into large cistern (we have the cistern).  Stored water used to water plants near the barn:  pumpkins, sunflowers, etc.

Please reply to to discuss projects.  Write" Eagle Project" in the subject line.  For further information about the garden, please see our website at:
