Today the Boy Scouts of America celebrates its centennial anniversary! The program that has positively affected millions of children and young adults is 100 years old! As everyone is aware the celebration started in 2009 and will continue throughout 2010, however Feb 8th is the actual anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America’s founding.
I can’t begin to cover all of the news stories about the 100th anniversary of the BSA, there are just too many! I’d encourage you to spend some time reading and viewing some of the stories out there, you can find a wide selection searching Boy Scouts 100 on Google News. You’ll find stories from http://kaaltv.com, NPR, myCentralJersey.com, Good Morning America, and more!
The celebration has been strong and shows no sign that it will lighten up any time soon. Communities have rallied around the anniversary from companies providing free ice cream, businesses providing display space, all the way to corn mazes.
