The Blue And Gold
Posted On: 2021-03-05
Arrangement. Eight, Cub Scouts speak their lines and place the following cards on a large blue flannel board: "Truth, Faith, Loyalty, Sunlight, Good Cheer, Happiness, and a cutout golden sun"
FIRST CUB SCOUT. Back in the good old days, school colors gave people a feeling of school pride and loyalty. Today, the blue and gold of Cub Scouting helps to build this spirit among Cub Scouts.
SECOND CUB SCOUT. (points to a blue flannel board): The blue reminds us of the sky above. It stands for truth, spirituality, and steadfast loyalty.
THIRD CUB SCOUT. (places "truth" card in the upper left corner of the board): Truth means we must always be honest.
FOURTH CUB SCOUT. (places "Faith" card in the upper right corner): Faith means a belief in God.
FIFTH CUB SCOUT. (places "Loyally" card across the bottom): Loyalty means being faithful and loyal to God, our country, and our fellow man.
SIXTH CUB SCOUT. The gold stands for the warm sunlight (He places the sun in the center of the board and the "sunlight" card across the top of the sun).
SEVENTH CUB SCOUT. Gold also stands for good cheer and happiness. We always feel better when the sun is shining and so will those to whom we give goodwill. (He places "good cheer" and "happiness" cards on each side of the sun cutout.)
EIGHTH CUB SCOUT. As we wear our Cub Scout uniforms, may the meaning of the blue and gold colors make us remember our Cub Scout ideals, the Cub Scout Promise, and the Law of the Pack.
