Founder's Day

May 29
Many organizations and institutions celebrate a Founder's Day. In London, the old soldiers at the Royal Hospital in Chelsea hold a Founder's Day parade on May 29, the birthday of Charles II (1630-1685), the hospital's founder and one of England's most popular monarchs. May 29 is also Royal Oak Day ( see Shick-Shack Day).
