Candlelight Is A Sign Of Welcome

PERSONNEL: Akela, four Scouts.

EQUIPMENT: Six candles, log or ceremony board.

AKELA: Candlelight is a sign of welcome, warmth, love and joy. All over the world people use lighted candles for cerebrating special occasions. On this special occasion, we too, will use candlelight. Let the candles we light represent the Spirit of Scouting and our bond with one another.

SCOUT #1: I am lighting this candle for courtesy. A Scout is courteous. He is courteous to his elders, friends, teachers, and especially to other members of his family.

SCOUT #2: I am lighting this candle for unity. When a boy joins a pack, he becomes a member of a den. When a boy crosses over and joins a troop, he becomes a member of a patrol. He does not work alone, but in the company of other young men. He learns to get along with others.

SCOUT #3: I am lighting this candle for bravery. A Scout is courageous enough to stand up for things he knows to be right and honest, thereby making the world a better place to live.

SCOUT #4: I am lighting this candle for service. A boy not only does service to himself while he is in scouting, but he also services others. He helps spread goodwill.

AKELA: Men and times change, but principles never do. Tonight we celebrate the principles upon which scouting was founded. These two candles, which I now light, signify the bridge we are crossing, the past with the present and the present with the future. What better way to explore the future then through scouting.
