(Light a candle or use one if it is already lit.) Throughout this meeting this evening this candle, which represents the Spirit of Scouting has burned (if lit) OR I light this candle to represent the Spirit of Scouting. Look steadily at the flame for a moment. (Pause) Now close your eyes. The image remains with you. Open your eyes. Now we blow out the light. As the image of the light remained in our ceremony, so will the Spirit of Cub Scouting stay with us. This evening of fun and good Cub Scout fellowship will not soon be forgotten.
