On January 19, 2016 Troop 287 conducted a quarterly Court of Honor.  Many scouts were awarded rank advancements and merit badges in recognition of their achievements and hard work.  Even Assistant Scoutmasters received a pay increase this year.  Each ASM was paid with either a $100,000 Dollar or Payday candy bar!  Congratulations to all for a job well done!  Check out additional photos at this link:



An Eagle Scout Court of Honor was held on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Killeen in honor of Tanner Toland. Tanner started his journey in scouting when he was six years old in first grade.  He started as a Tiger Cub with Pack 248 in August 2007 and continued until he earned his Arrow of Light in fifth grade.  He also completed all twenty activity badges while a Webelo to earn the Super Achiever Award.  He then crossed over from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts and became a scout with Troop 287 in February 2012.  Tanner progressed in his troop leadership skills by performing various positions including Assistant Patrol Leader, Troop Guide, Historian and Instructor.  He graduated from National Youth Leadership Training in December 2014 and has earned 24 merit badges.

For his Eagle Scout Service Project, Tanner led scouts and adults to install two 150 pound basketball poles in 25 bags of mixed concrete.  The project took the following three days: drilling holes, installation of the poles and installation of the basketball goals for a total of 110 volunteer hours.  Much appreciation is felt by Immanuel Lutheran Church members.

Tanner plans to remain active in scouting and continue to work on merit badges and participate in a ten day hike at Philmont Scout Ranch this summer.
