Cyprus Scouts Association Centenary 30.1.2013

The Cyprus Scouts Association (C.S.A.) was founded in 1913 and is a member of the World Scout Movement Organisation.
Since its establishment, the C.S.A. - through its Scout training - has provided its members with the necessary skills for life, teaching them their duty towards God and their Country and love for others. As a result, all those who wore and continue to wear the Scout uniform, are active participants in and contributors to society. Many of our heroes were Scouts and sealed with their lives the Promise that they had made when becoming members of the Scout movement.
It is estimated that more then 100.000 youngsters in Cyprus have been Scouts during these 100 years, and today the C.S.A. has around 6.000 members, with 54 active Scout Groups.
This year 2013 the Cyprus Scouting Association celebrates its 100 Years. All Cubs, Scouts and Explorers have been given the 100 Year Knecker and Badge which we will wear for all of 2013.
On the 30th January the first issue of the Stamp Commemorating the 100 Years of the Cyprus Scout Association came into circulation. The Stamp has a value of  €0.43 and comes in a page of eight with the 100 Year Knecker in the left corner. On the Stamp the 100 Year Badge is located top left above two cubs looking from behind a tree. An open 
tent also shows the great outdoors. In the back round Scouts are building Pioneering Projects.
Thank you Dear Merja for this very nice FDC.
