100th Anniversary Postage Stamp to be Announced!

Scouting has been celebrated on postage stamps around the world.  Some collectors only focus on those stamps.  There is even an organization for it:  Scouts on Stamps Society International.

There was also a big drive on Facebook to have an official stamp created for our 100th Anniversary, too. It showed that a lot of folks were upset that the anniversary may go unnoticed.

Well, looks like the wait might be over, per SOSSI website.

12 NOV 2009 at 10AM, the United States Postal Service is announcing a Celebrate Scouting stamp at the Smithsonian National Postal Museum.

Can't wait to see it!  And I can't wait to hear the story behind the stamps creation.  Oversight? Public pressure?  Did folks just not communicate well?
