World Scout Scarf Day
August 1st, 2014
In 2007 on the occasion of the 100 anniversary of the Scout Movement, the Austrian Scout Association declared August 1 a "National Scout Scarf Day" and asked all active and former scouts to wear their scout scarfs in public. Many people including prominent business persons followed the call and thus made the spirit of scouting visible.
So, get out your Scarf and Woggle and wear it!
Wear your Scout Scarf in public during the event, make the "Spirit of Scouting" visible!
Join the event, invite active and former Scouts!
