Opening and Closing Combination Ceremony
Posted On: 2021-03-13

Equipment: Candlestick with one large candle

Personnel: Cubmaster.

For the opening:

CUBMASTER (lighting the candle): We often use candles in our pack meeting ceremonies. When we use only one, what does that candle represent? That's right - the spirit of Cub Scouting.

The spirit of Cub Scouting is summed up in our Cub Scout Promise and Law of the Pack. Will all Cub Scouts please join me in the Promise and Law? (Leads Them)

We will let this candle burn throughout our meeting as a reminder that we will try to live by the Cub Scout spirit.

For the closing:

CUBMASTER: Now our meeting is ending and we must blow out our candle. But that does not mean that we have extinguished the spirit of Cub Scouting in our hearts. Let's all try to keep that spirit alive until we meet again. Good night, Cub Scouts and parents.
