Tall Timbers District Boy Scouts celebrate 100 years

By Morgan Thomas - bio | email

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – Boy Scouts have been serving their communities for one hundred years. This weekend scouts of all ages under the Tall Timbers District celebrated their 100th anniversary with a banquet at the Pitser Garrison Civic Center in Lufkin.

The Tall Timber District has 12 Cub Scout packs and 17 Boy Scout troops and two Venturing crews and covers all of Angelina County and parts of Houston and Trinity counties. Music, food and scouting awards made the evening a special one for everyone who attended.

We spoke to some scouts about what they get out it.

 

"I think its really instilled a lot in the youth of America. It's the largest its been since it started," said Mason Wheeler who has scouted for about ten years.

"It's the fact of being prepared when like a crisis comes and its just being in this group with a lot of people. You can just walk in somewhere and be like I know you," said Lauren Kirkland, Venture Scout.

 

Scouts, Pack Leaders and their families reflected on the last 100 years of scouting in America and the next 100 years to come.
