Scouts BSA Troop 11 marked its 100th anniversary on March 29. Recognized as the oldest Boy Scout troop in the Sam Houston Area Council, the troop was chartered in 1914 and re-chartered in 1920 after a one-year absence in 1918 due to the Spanish flu pandemic, when thousands were quarantined in their homes and troop meetings were banned. History seemed to repeat itself as Houstonians were under the stay-at-home order due to the coronavirus. Troop 11’s 100th anniversary celebration will now be held Aug. 29, 5-9 p.m., at First Presbyterian Church. Troop 11, which has been sponsored by First Presbyterian Church for 100 years and is currently led by Scoutmaster Chris Bryant, has 98 Scouts and over 60 registered adults. Pictured are (from left) Alden Davenport and Alex Wallin with the proclamation.
