Citizenship in the Community

One of the requirements for Delaney's Citizenship in the Community merit badge is that he has to attend a city council or school board meeting. I thought the school board would be more interesting, especially as they have been debating a four day school week. It's also at his school, so it's close. City Council is 12 miles away in Elizabeth.

So tonight we didn't get home until 6:15, and I was thinking of cancelling. I was tired, it was raining, and they put off the four day week debate. But I also hate putting things off since I know next time won't be any less inconvenient, and I would have gone to karate instead. I miss enough Thursdays, so we packed up 30 minutes later and went.

Afterwards Delaney said it "wasn't very interesting" and he was right. It was a fairly dry meeting, and we had to search around to find something where there were differing opinions. But he has something to talk about and he's ready to get 3 or 4 of the requirements knocked off next week.
