Founders Day 2013

Today is Founders Day, as it is known by many Scouts. It is the birthday of Robert Baden Power, who was born in this day in 1857. Further, it is also the birthday of his wife Olave Baden Powell, born in 1889. The Guide Association call it Thinking Day, as they think of Robert and Olave and their contribution to scouting and guiding.

A lot of groups run special programs around this date to celebrate Robert Baden Powell’s Birthday.

 While we didn’t do anything this year, Akela and I thought it was very that we made note of Robert and Olave Baden Powell’s birthday.
