NATIONAL BOY SCOUTS DAY – Boy Scouts were first created in Great Britain in 1908 following the success of Robert Baden-Powell’s book, Scouting for Boys. While in London, an American newspaper man was honoured with a good deed from a Boy Scout, thus planting the seed for Boys Scouts of America. Since 1910, there have been over 114,000,000 Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts. FUN FACT: 181 astronauts were Boy Scouts.
NATIONAL KITE FLYING DAY – Seriously? In Canada? In the winter? Well, given the freezing rain yesterday, we could use a big kite to pull us down the street on skates! Ok, now I like kite flying day! Go fly a kite!!
