Ten Boy Scouts from Christ Episcopal Church’s Troop 277 recently completed their Public Health Merit Badge. The event was held at Pusser’s Bar & Grille in Ponte Vedra Beach.
The program was organized by Dr. Hugh Rappa and Pusser’s General Manager Dan Monk. At the event, the Scouts learned about the contraction and prevention of diseases. They also learned about immunizations, food service operations, food preparation, handling and safe storage. Many of these scouts have also signed up to take the Medicine Merit Badge class later this month.
Troop 277 has approximately 70 scouts in the troop ranging in age from 12 to 18 years old.
