Troop One celebrates 100 years
Ninety-eight years old never looked so young on a Wednesday night in Fondren. The Scout hut at St. James Episcopal Church is filled to capacity. Scouts snap to attention as a 15-year-old senior patrol leader briskly gets the group down to the business of scouting. Welcome to Troop 1, one of the oldest continually chartered troops in the United States and the largest in Mississippi.
