Block Of Wood

EQUIPMENT: A long table with a cloth covering the top and front and side, A block of wood, A variety of wood working tools, A piece of wood carved and finished

CM: You see this block of wood (holds up the block of wood, uncarved) which is much like a boy as he enters the Cub Scouting program. It is just a block of wood. It is plain and does not suspect what it can become.

Now, let's look at a piece of wood (holds up the wood that is carved) that has then lovingly shaped, sanded, stained, and finished in every way to become something useful and beautiful. What makes the difference between the uncut block of wood and this fine piece of wood?

A patient wood worker, using tools that are properly cared for, follows a pattern to shape a block of wood into something of beauty and use. It takes time, it takes patience, it takes a plan. That's what Cub Scouting is all about. A plan to help shape boys into achieving their potential. And that's what we're here to celebrate tonight.
