Posted On: 2021-03-05
EQUIPMENT: Candelabra with three candles; one larger candle.
PERSONNEL: Cubmaster and all present and former Cub Scouts.
CUBMASTER: Tonight we have had a lot of fun at the ____th birthday of Cub Scouting and the ______ birthday of our own pack. As Cub Scouts and leaders, we are following a trail blazed by millions of other boys, men, and women.
All of them have had the Cub Scout spirit, which we symbolize with the flame of this one candle. (Light larger candle. Extinguish room lights.) What is the Cub Scout spirit? That's easy. It's the three things we promise to do in the Cub Scout Promise. We say, "I promise to do my best to do my duty to God and my country." That's the first part. (Light one candle on candelabra.)
The second part is, "To help other people." (Light the second candle.) And the third is, "To obey the Law of the Pack." (Light third candle.) Now, while these candles burn as a reminder to us, will all Cub Scouts, and former Cub Scouts who are with us tonight, please stand, and repeat the Promise with me. (Lead Promise.)
