The Last Closing Ceremony Of The Year

STAGING: House lights are dimmed. Four posters with the four Cub Scouts ranks, eight candles (two by each poster).

CUBMASTER: This last ceremony of 19__ is a fine time to reconfirm our beliefs in ourselves and the Scouting program. (Lights two candles by the Bobcat poster) Will all Bobcat Cub Scouts and their parents please stand. Bobcats, do you promise in 19__ to do your best, to be true, to help other people, to obey the Law of the Pack, and to advance one rank? (They respond) We will do our best.

(If there are no Bobcats present) Since we have no Bobcats, will the pack leadership please stand. Will you rededicate for yourselves and for the Bobcats of our future, to do your best, to be true, to help other people, to obey the Law of the Pack. (They respond) We will do our best. (Follow the same procedure for Wolf and Bear Cub Scouts) Will all Webelos Scouts and their parents stand. Webelos Scouts, do you in 19__ promise to do your best, to be true, to help other people, to obey the law of the Pack, and to earn the Arrow of Light award? (They respond) We will do our best. All of these eight candles are part of the light, the Light of the Spirit of Cub Scouting.

ASST. CUBMASTER: The first four candles are the four parts of the Cub Scout Promise - Duty to God, duty to country, to help other people, and to obey the Law of the Pack. The second four candles are the four parts of the Law of the Pack - the Cub Scout follows Akela, the Cub Scout helps the pack go, the pack helps the Cub Scout grow, the Cub Scout gives goodwill.

CUBMASTER: I know you will be loyal Cub Scouts in 19__. As the Spirit of Cub Scouting burns here it also burns in the hearts of Cub Scouts everywhere. May it continue to burn in your hearts during the coming year as we go upward and forward in Pack (#).
