Posted On: 2020-08-21


PERSONNEL: Narrator, four adult leaders.

EQUIPMENT: Four large candles and muffin cups, enough 2 to 3 inch birthday candles for each adult in the audience to have one; flashlight.

ARRANGEMENT: All lights are out. All leaders stand behind the Narrator.

NARRATOR: To a Cub Scout it looks so very black, when there is no leader, no den, or pack. Wait, here is a leader, (first leader lights candle) with a lighted candle. But, the job is more than one can handle, He needs den leaders and committee members too, because there is so much to do. Now he has found on (second leaders lights candle) and now another. Here's a committee member( third leader lights candle; fourth leader lights candle of on adult in each den who passes light to next adult). Here's a mother , now each to his neighbor, please pass a light. (Narrator pauses while all adults lights candles.)

For our Cub Scouts it is getting bright. Out of the blackness we how have hope, Our Cub Scout no more will grope to find his way along the road that millions like him often strode to ware the uniform of blue and gold. The laws of his country and God to uphold. you also can now see your way, too. So, if all together we hold our candle high, Cub Scouting will never die.
