Heralding a new century of Scouting

George Fosselius, chairman of the Mt. Diablo Silverado Council International Committee, blew the kudu horn at 8 a.m., Wednesday, Aug. 1, at the summit of Mount Diablo to celebrate the dawn of a new century of Scouting.

About 200 youths and adults were present at the sunrise ceremony, which was exactly 100 years after Gen. Robert Baden-Powell ran his experimental Scout camp on Brownsea Island off the southern coast of England.

The ceremony started at 8 a.m. in the United Kingdom and rotated around the world through each of the 24 time zones.
