A Double Scouting Holiday. This is when both Scouting Sunday and Boy Scouts of America Anniversary are on the same day … February 8. This can only occur when the 8th of February occur on a Sunday.
A Double Scouting Holiday
February 8, 2015, is a double Scouting Holiday. Not only is it Scouting Sunday but it is also The Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. 2010, the Boy Scouts celebrated their 100th Anniversary. 1910 – 2010, so that means Scouting is now 105 years old in America.
The next time this will occur will be
- February 8, 2026
- February 8, 2032
- February 8, 2037
One of the points in the Scout Law is a Scout is Reverent and Scout Sunday is a day set aside where at some church the Boy Scout Troop may led the services that day for the church, similar to Youth Sunday, when the youth groups led services. Also a Scout is faithful to God.
Plus in the Scout Oath, the Scout makes an Oath for Duty to God.
So some of my readers will know, I am an Eagle Scout. I attained my rank of Eagle in 1994. An Eagle Scout is the highest rank in the Boy Scouts of America. “Once an Eagle, Always an Eagle!”. I am also a lifetime member of National Eagle Scouts Association (NESA).
