My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Sharon Demers!!!

Sharon Demers (Calicogirl, #5392) has received a certificate of achievement in Make it Easy for earning a Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert Level Grease Chicks Merit Badge!

“I am familiar with checking oil level, coolant level, brake fluid, power-steering fluid, transmission fluid, and windshield-washer fluid. I also know how to check air pressure in my tires and fill as needed. I have kept a mileage record. In our GMC Diesel pick-up, the average miles per gallon is 17, 20 mpg on the highway.

I completed my first oil change.  My husband guided me step by step on what to do. Thankfully I didn’t get too dirty. In addition to changing the oil in our truck, I also challenged myself in replacing spark plugs, replacing spark-plug wires, and changing the engine coolant. Next on the list … tire changing!

I am grateful to now know how to do this on my own. I feel that this is a great accomplishment. Oh, and my honey was very gracious in taking my picture … not!

Thank you for this Merit Badge. It is a good reminder and teacher of being able to take care of one’s own vehicle.”

    Sharon, you go girl! You are brave getting under that big car and I admire you taking on the challenge!

  2. Wow Im impressed! My ” great white whale” ( aka white 1990 Pontiac Bonneville) just went to car heaven and I cannot do those things myself except checking my fluids. Very impressive indeed Sharon.

    Thank you Winnie and Lisa for your encouragement. Word of advice, do not chose a cold windy day to work on your oil change and park your vehicle on a flat surface not gravel, ouch! 🙂
