Troop 284 was established in 1915 under the commission of William Barnet and remains chartered to the Boy Scouts of America through the West Seattle Kiwanis. Over the last 100 years, Troop 284 has proudly graduated 102 Eagle Scouts and provided 15,000 hours of service in and around the West Seattle community and beyond.

Since 1988, Troop 284 has maintained their commitment to the West Seattle Food Bank through the Scouting for Food drives; an annual program where the Scouts collect food donations from the West Seattle community. Over the last 27 years, Troop 284 has collected and donated more than 1,000 pounds of food per year to the food bank.

In keeping with their commitment to service, Troop 284 gathered at the West Seattle Food Bank on Jan. 24 to help assemble and install some much needed storage shelving.

Their Centennial Service Project was completed with assistance from Walter F. Toth Construction.

As our Troop transitions to our next 100 years, we hope you will stay in touch and continue to share in our Boy Scout journey. We welcome your support and involvement. For current Troop events: facebook.com/WSTroop284

    Kiwanis of West Seattle is the sponsor of Troop 284. We encourage all members of the community to help Troop 284 in celebrating their 100 years in our community. Join the celebration by attending the banquet at South Seattle Community College or attend a meeting of Kiwanis each Wednesday at the West Seattle Senior Center at 6:30 -2nd floor.

    Nice article on “my troop.” Looking forward to attending the celebration. Should be a great event. I hear the author of the current Boy Scout Handbook will be there.

Sorry, comment time is over.
