The Great Melting Pot
Personnel: 3 parents, 3 Cubs and Den Leader or Cubmaster to be Akela
Equipment: 3 poles, rope or twine, 2 flagpoles, Pack Flag and American Flag
Setting: Each parent will walk in with a stave, then they will form a tripod, which an older Scout will tie. This is a unique way for a Scout troop to share with the Cub Scouts
Parent 1: I support Scouts because they promote strong healthy boys and minds.
Parent 2: For me, it’s their encouragement of the boys in their religious beliefs, and their growth within their own church.
Parent 3: It’s the citizenship, the respect for one’s duty to God and country. It‘s the sharing with the community.
(Cub comes out carrying a large pot that is to be hung from the tripod or a cardboard cutout of it.)
Cub 1: Our nation is like this kettle. Our ancestry mixed. The different feelings, cultures and religious beliefs are in this kettle.
Cub 2: As Cub Scouts, we learn to respect, even help people who are different than us.
(Pulls out pack flag, and places on flagpole)
Cub 3: That is why Scouting can be good for our community, state and nation.
(Brings forth American Flag and puts on pole).
Akela: Now as we are all mixed together into one large Scouting family; let’s stand and honor our flags. Scout salute and say the Pledge of Allegiance.
