– Editor’s note: W.B. Evans is taking a well-deserved birthday break this week. This column originally appeared in the Feb.11, 2007, edition of The Lancaster News. We are reprinting it at the request of our readers.
We just celebrated National Boy Scout Week.
I’m pretty sure it always comes during the first week of February.
I know for sure that it did back in 1945. My birthday is Feb. 9 and that year, Scout Week had started a few days earlier.
