Eureka, I've Found It

PERSONNEL AND EQUIPMENT: Sourdough prospector with floppy hat and gold pan, merchant with long-sleeved white shirt and sleeve garters, blacksmith with black apron and hammer, teamster with horse whip, saloon keeper with wipe rag and root beer bottles, Cub Scout in uniform

NARRATOR: Marshall's discovery of gold in 1849 made California the destination for people from all over the world.

SOURDOUGH: I came to the goldfields to find my dreams in a rich gold claim. The work is hard and the gold is fleeting. I find little to reward me.

MERCHANT: I came to the goldfields to provide supplies and outfit the miners. The work is hard and I'm always out of supplies.

BLACKSMITH: I came to the goldfields to make equipment and keep bullion wagons moving. The work is hard and I'm always out of picks and shovels, horseshoes, and wagon wheels.

TEAMSTER: I came to the goldfields to carry supplies in and gold dust out of the mining camps. The work is hard and my horses are always thirsty and hungry.

SALOONKEEPER: I came to the goldfields to mine the miners. The work is hard and I never have enough root beer.

CUB SCOUT: I came to Scouting to have fun and do challenging new things. I have worked hard to earn my advancement and have discovered fun, fellowship, and self-confidence. The ideals of Cub Scouting will last forever in my character. Eureka! I've found it! ... The BLUE and GOLD of Cub Scouting. Please join me in the Cub Scout Promise.
