The oldest Boy Scout troop in continuous service in Washington State, Troop 284 will celebrate their 100 year anniversary on Feb. 21. But in keeping with their commitment to service they gathered at the West Seattle Food Bank on Jan. 24 to help assemble and install some much needed storage shelving.

The project was completed with assistance from Walter F. Toth Construction.

Troop 284 has served the West Seattle Food Bank through "Scouting for food" since 1988; an annual program where the Scouts collect food donations from the West Seattle community.

Then next month on Feb. 21 the troop will host an alumni reunion in recognition of their 100 years of continuous service. Troop 284 was established in 1915 under the direction of

William Barnet and remains chartered to the Boy Scouts of America through the West Seattle Kiwanis. All Troop 284 alumni, families and interested persons are welcome to register for the celebration to be held at the Brockey Center at South Seattle Community College. Questions regarding banquet registration and Troop 284 information can be addressed to
