Cub Scout Troop 312 recently learned a lesson in government from Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,I,C-East Northport) for their Citizen in the Community Merit Badge. The badge requires Cub Scouts to learn about their communities and local government. Assemblyman Raia presented the members of Troop 312 with a Certificate of Merit for their interest in government and their good deeds as Cub Scouts.

“It is great to see young people interested in learning about government and helping out in the community. It was delightful to help them get closer to receiving their badge and I wish them the best of luck,” said Raia.
