Leadership Candles

EQUIPMENT: One large candle, five smaller candles.

PERSONNEL: Cubmaster, assistant to snuff out candles.

SETUP: Light all candles and extinguish room lights.

CUBMASTER: Cub Scouting is growing all around the country.

Why do boys join? To have fun, of course.

But Cub Scouting is more than just a good time. It is a program that can have a positive effect on boys for the rest of their lives.

The large candle represents all the fun, adventure, and excitement Cub Scouting offers. But its light is not enough for a successful program. We need the light from the smaller candles, too. Together they represent the spirit of Cub Scouting.

Our program is for families. Without the support of every family in the pack, some of that Cub Scout spirit is lost. (Snuff out first small candle.)

Without enough den leaders, some of that Cub Scout spirit is lost. (Snuff out second candle.)

Without enough committee members, some of that Cub Scout spirit is lost. (Snuff out third candle.)

Without enough uniformed pack leaders, some of that Cub Scout spirit is lost. (Snuff out fourth candle.)

Eventually the darkness becomes overpowering, and the 1st candle representing the fun, excitement, and adventure of Cub Scouting can no longer sustain itself. it, too dies out. Snuff out large candle)

(Softly) Until we are left with nothing but darkness. (Pause) It's up to you. Thank you, and good night.
