Sponsored by the Annandale Reformed Church, Troop 288 meets at 7:30 on Tuesday evenings in their Fellowship Hall.  Founded in 1971, to date Troop 288 has helped 87 boys become Eagle Scouts and is proud to continue to provide scouting to the local area.  Scouting has a rich tradition at the Annandale Reformed Church with the first troop being sponsored there in June of 1918.  Troop 1, Troop 88, and Troop 188 were all predecessors to Troop 288.

I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Be Prepared

 

"Be prepared for what?" someone once asked Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of worldwide Scouting. "Why, for any old thing," he replied.

the scout slogan

Do a Good Turn Daily

 

An American visitor to London in 1909 lost his way in a dense fog. Presently a boy approached and guided him to his destination. The visitor, Mr. Boyce, tried to give the boy a tip but the boy refused it saying, “No thank you, sir. I am a Scout. I won’t take anything for helping.”
