CEREMONIES FOR UNIT LEADERS

Piedmont Council

Materials needed: Four candles

Scouting is made up of many things, people, and ideas. Tonight we are going to take a few minutes to reflect on some of the more pertinent aspects of Scouting.

First - Scouting is a program. As depicted by our first candle it is one of the many items of Scouting. It is a program dedicated to the development of character, citizenship, and the mental and physical fitness of our youth.

Second - Scouting is for youth of our community. Young boys expect to learn, gain recognition by advancement, but most of all they expect to have fun with others their own age.

Third - Scouting is the parents of young Cub Scouts. For without parents taking an interest in the activities of their son, taking them to meetings, and fulfilling the part of Akela, we would not have Cub Scouts.

But, as you can see, this leaves on lone candle. This candle represents the leaders of Cub Scouting. Would _______ please come forward? _______ I light this candle for you, for you have been a faithful leader to us and we want you to know that your work, dedication, and tireless effort have been gratefully appreciated. For without your leadership as with the leadership of all Cub Scout leaders the first three candles program, youth, and parents would be meaningless.
Thank You!
