A Creed - Closing

This is an impressive closing for the Blue and Gold Banquet or any other type of dinner.

Personnel: Cubmaster, Cub Scout poem reader, person to turn off lights

Equipment: Candles, one on each den's table

Arrangement: On each den's table a single lighted candle burns.  All house lights are out.

Cubmaster: Cub Scouting is a part of family life in 60 countries around the world.  In all of these free countries, on an evening such as this, Cub Scouts are joining in a grand howl and repeating the Cub Scout motto.  What is the Cub Scout Motto?

Cub Scouts: Do your best.

Cubmaster: As we face each other around our Blue and Gold tables, let us look at the candle's flame and silently thank God for the Cub Scout friendships we are privileged to enjoy.  Now, join me in rededicating ourselves to our Cub Scout Promise.

(All repeat Cub Scout Promise)

Cubmaster:  Thanks to everyone for your assistance tonight.  We'll say goodnight after Cub Scout (name) reads Edgar A. Guest's "A Creed.

Cub Scout:

Lord, let me not in service lag,
Let me be worthy of our flag;
Let me remember, when I'm tired,
The sons heroic who have died.

In freedom's name, and in my way
Teach me to be as brave as they.
In all I am, in all I do,
Unto our flag I would be true;

For God and country let me stand.
Unstained of soul and clean of hand,
Teach me to serve and guard and love
The starry flag which flies above."
