The Pack Pays Tribute
Posted On: 2021-05-29
Materials needed are blue and yellow paints, Arrow of Light Badge, certificates, and parent’s pins.
CUBMASTER: Tonight we recognize certain of our Webelos Scouts who have achieved the highest rank in Cub Scouting, the Arrow of Light. Will the following Webelos Scouts and their parents please step forward (call each scout by name).
The pack pays tribute to you tonight for the honor you have earned. You have worked long and hard to reach this peak. You have earned your Webelos Badge and at least eight Webelos Activity Badges.
You can recite from memory the Boy Scout Oath and the 12 points of the Scout Law, and you practice them in your everyday life. You know the Scout Motto, slogan, sign, salute, and handclasp and what they stand for. You also understand what the different parts of the Scout Badge stand for. You know the parts of the Boy Scout uniform and have visited a troop. All of this you have done, and so much more.
In earning the Arrow of Light, you have shown that you have done your best. The color blue stands for the spirit of Cub Scouting, and this arrow shows the way of the Scouting trail. (Draw an arrow on the forehead in blue.)
The color gold stands for the rays of the sun and is used to show the seven virtues of life: wisdom, courage, self-control, justice, faith, hope, and love. (Draw seven rays on the arrow in yellow.)
These seven virtues will help you lead a happy and successful life. Remember them always.
(Present parents with badges to present to their sons. Have boys pin their parents with the parent’s pins. Congratulate each with a firm handshake. Recognize Webelos Den Leader for his or her role in the boys’ development.)
