Merit Badge University

7 scouts from Troop 107 attended Merit Badge University this year at ETSU.  We worked on a bunch of cool merit badges including Citizenship in the World, Citizenship in the Nation, Cinematography, Coin Collecting, Art, Nuclear Science, Scouting Heritage, Medicine, Public Health, and Traffic Safety.  One of our older scouts took the American Red Cross CPR certification class and several of our troop leaders took the Scoutmaster Leader Specific Training.

Fire Safety & Arson Investigation

Tuesday, November 18, 2014


We had a very informative meeting on Tuesday as we got to see Leo, a trained accelerant dog in action.  Thank you to the Tennessee State Fire Marshals Bomb and Arson Section for educating us on fire safety and fire investigation techniques.

Cornbread from scratch

Tuesday, October 14, 2014


Who will help me shell the corn?       Who will help me grind the corn?

Who will help me sift the cornmeal?       Who will help me mix the cornmeal into batter?

Who will help me cook the cornbread?       Who will help me eat the cornbread?

“We will” said Troop 107…and they all enjoyed the cornbread together.

Many thanks to Doug Tester for sharing his time and knowledge (& corn) with our Troop.
Doug taught us the complete process of making cornbread… from the garden to the dinner plate!
