Boy Scouts of the Two Bays District, which includes Kent County Delaware,recently earned their Textile Merit Badge. To earn the badge, each boy had to meet seven requirements including learning 10 new terms about the textile industry, exploring five careers in the industry, identifying natural and synthetic fibers using a microscope, explaining the care for new garments based on the garment’s fiber content, weaving a coaster or wall hanging on a self-made simple loom, and explaining the ecological concerns regarding the production of textiles.

Ms. Debra L. Seibert, a Boy Scout merit badge counselor, held classes during the months of January, February, and March to work on the requirements. By the last class in March, the13 boys are expected to have completed the requirements for the badge. Mr. Eli Valenzuela, President of First State Manufacturing in Milford, presented the boys with his inspiring story of building his company and the tales of his travels to Israel. They were able to try on an official baseball umpire vest, an Israeli Army flak vest, and an ammo pouch, which are all made by Eli’s company. They also got to examine a seat cover from a C-5 aircraft,a backpack, and other sample products.
