Founders' Day - February 22 (Baden Powell's 80th Birthday Message to Scouts - Recorded in 1937)

Worldwide in nearly all Scout associations, Founders' Day is celebrated on February 22, the birthday of Robert Baden-Powell, 1st Baron Baden-Powell (born in 1857), the founder of Scouting, and coincidentally also of his wife Olave Baden-Powell(born in 1889). (Wikipedia)

This YouTube video is an audio recording of a speech made by Baden Powell on his 80th Birthday in 1937 as a message to all Scouts.

The 5th Mildura Scout Blog is 5 Years Old!

We established the 5th Mildura Scout Blog on 7 February 2009, and would like to take a moment to celebrate this milestone.

After 438 posts and 29,846 page views, we think that our blog has provided a great level of communication with the Scouting Families of the 5th Mildura Scout Group, and helped the Group grow. We look forward to continuing the blog into the future, together with our Facebook pages.

Thank you to all that have contributed over the years.

And a big thank you to all of you that have referred to our blog when you missed the paper handouts at Scouts.
