February 8th


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!!
