Memorabilia Monday: Activity Patches.

on May 9, 2011 in collections, Memorabilia

It has been said that Boy Scout leaders will do nearly anything for a patch. I guess I may fall into that grouping. I have been to many camporees and Scouting activities over the last three decades, and yes, I attended a few of them just to get the patch, but I have to add that I did have fun at the events. Many of the activity patches I have collected are found on a 4′ x 4′ sheet of paneling that is hanging on a wall in my basement family room.

However, the sheet was filled a few years ago and now I am looking for a different way to display them. A patch blanket quickly come to mind, but I do not like sewing. There are probably about 150 patches on the sheet of paneling and another 30 or so patches waiting for a home.

How many patches do you have? How do you store or display them? Leave a comment and let us know.

      I think they should keep offering patches for the scouters to earn, That’s part of the fun in completeing the training classes or seminars. I know that some of the adults think it is dorky or stupid, but I feel they just don’t have the true scxouting spirit or beleive in fellowship. ENTHUSIASIM… H.A.P.P.Y. I love my job.
