Boys are seated in a semi-circle around the den ceremonial board.
Den leader begins by reminding the boys that we use a candle to symbolize Akela, the good leader.
She then lights a candle.
DEN LEADER: Boys of Den ____, this light means we will follow a good leader. It even means that we will do the right things when our leader isn't present because if we don't, our leader will lose faith in us. We will lose faith in ourselves, too, because we will not be doing our best. What is our Motto?
CUB SCOUTS: Do Your Best!
DEN LEADER: Let the memory of this flame stay in our mind to remind us to do our best. (blow our candle).
