Chartered Organization Representative: Tonight we honor the leaders of Pack [number] for their outstanding work during the past year.

Our pack committee chairman is [name]. Working with him on the committee are [names]. We appreciate their advice, planning, and administration of our pack. They are our board of directors. Now, a group that our dens and den leaders could not be without are our den chiefs. These Boy Scouts give valuable leadership to our Cub Scouts and assistance to our den leaders. We are proud to recognize Den Chiefs [name] and [name] of Troop [number].
Tonight we also honor our den leaders and assistants for their unselfish service. Their devotion helps our Cub Scouts grow in stature and character. We are proud of our den leaders. (Introduces den leaders.)
Also important among our leaders are our assistant Cubmasters and Webelos den leaders. (Introduces them.) They guide our pack meeting programs and prepare our older boys for Boy Scouting.
It is now my pleasure to introduce to you a man we love and appreciate for his example, guidance, and leadership - our Cubmaster, [name].
Many of our Cub Scouts have been graduated into our own Boy Scout troop. [Name], our Scoutmaster, has helped provide our pack with many den chiefs. We appreciate his cooperation and are happy for our Webelos Scouts when they graduate into his troop. Will the den chiefs accompany Scoutmaster [name] to the front, and each Webelos Scout so assigned bring the other leaders forward.
I am happy to introduce [name], the head of our chartered organization.
Organization Head: On behalf of our organization, the boys, and their families, we are happy to present you leaders with these certificates of thanks. (He presents certificates.)
We pledge ourselves to the continuing support of the pack and to the purposes and objectives of Cub Scouting. We will Do Our Best.
