Aug 1 - Scout Scarf Day The idea is that all active

with the World Jamboree in Sweden which was a perfect opportunity to show the close bond to all the scouts attending. Of course, the scarf is only a symbol but a
strong symbol for the scout promise and for our mission to leave the world as a bit better a place than we had found it.
