Happy Birthday Lord Baden-Powell

Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of World Scouting, was born on February 22, 1957, so today is his 160th birthday.  Scouts all around the world celebrate February 22 as “Founder’s Day.” His wife, Olave Baden-Powell, who for many years was the head of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, was born on February 22, 1889.  (Yes, she was exactly 32 years younger than he was.)  The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts celebrates February 22 as World Thinking Day.  See https://www.wagggs.org/en/what-we-do/world-thinking-day/

There is a Scouting magazine blog from 3 years ago on Founders Day at http://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/2014/02/21/7-ways-to-celebrate-baden-powell-on-founders-day-his-birthday/
