Spirit of Scouting
Heart of America Council
Cubmaster or Den Leader
Did you know that millions of boys and men have been part of the Boy Scout
Movement since its beginning in 1907? Many
of you dads were Scouts and today your sons are Cub Scouts.
What a vast force to be crusading each day, at work or play for those
things America holds dear! As we light the candles on our birthday cake, over all is the
Spirit of Scouting and below this, three candles representing Boy Scouting,
Cub Scouting, Venturing and Exploring.
Let us resolve that as someone, someplace helped us get started in
Cub Scouting, so will we, together and as individuals, help more boys and
institutions have Cub Scouting. Repeat
with me the response to our Cub Scout motto: WE’LL DO OUR BEST!
Now sing “Happy Birthday to You
I Am I, and You Are You

Alike in so many ways, different in many others!
But here! Now!
We share a common bond - Cub Scouting.
And so it is with the many nations that form the World Scout
Conference; alike in many ways, different in many ways, sharing a common
bond - Cub Scouting In 1920
Scouts from 32 countries gathered in Great Britain for the first World Scout
Conference This Conference
meets every two years during
the intervening time the World Scout Bureau, consisting of 12 members
elected at the previous World Scout Conference, meets to carry on the work
of the Conference. The Bureau
is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland.
We as Cub Scouts, are not only members of a Pack, but we are members
of a National organization and then members of a World organization.
It is time to pause and think about our brothers around the world,
how we are alike, how we are different, but mostly think about our common
bond - Cub Scouting
