This ceremony should be held at a den meeting, as soon as the denner is elected. The assistant denner could be installed at the same time.
Den leader, den chief, denner.
Table, den diary (if desired), white candle in holder, denner shoulder cord.
ARRANGEMENT The den leader or den chief can perform the installation.
Den Leader: [Denner's name], please step forward. (Lights candle.) This white candle represents the spirit of Cub Scouting. It takes team effort to keep the spirit alive-to keep the candle burning. You have just been elected to be a member of that team.
As denner, your duties are to assist me and our den chief. You will keep the den diary, help record attendance, and collect den dues. (This may vary depending on the responsibilities the den leader wishes the denner to have.)
During the week, you will set a good example for the other members of our den by being honest, fair, and showing true Cub Scouting spirit.
Do you accept these responsibilities, which will help us keep the spirit of Cub Scouting alive and the candle burning bright?
Denner: I do.
Den Leader: I am happy to present to you the denner shoulder cord, which is to be worn on your left sleeve during your term of office. Wear it proudly and with honor. Congratulations!
