Members of Boy Scout Troop 206 of Heflin recently participated in a winter camping event with below 20 degree temperatures. With several new scouts on their first camping trip, the importance of winter safety camping skills was the focus of the previous two scout meetings. The scouts attended the Choccolocco District Merit Badge Fair the previous day at Jacksonville State University. All of the Heflin Scouts participated in classes to earn merit badges to fulfill requirements leading to the annual JSU fair.
