CLOSING CEREMONY

 

Friendship Circle

 

Each Cub has a three foot section of rope joined with a square knot to that of the boy on his left. Boys hold rope back to form a taut circle. Leader says, "You are now

part of a group of close friends held together by the square knot - a symbol of being square. Let us give the Cub Scout promise."

 

Good Turn Cubmaster Minute

Trapper Trails Council

 

Most of us are happiest when we are doing something for others. Think for a moment ofatimewhenyou were helpful to someone. Chances are, it made you feel pretty good. Of course, we feel best when we do something for others without being found out. When we help others regularly, it soon becomes a habit and to be a natural thing. Once a you establish this habit, you will learn the real meaning of the good turn.

 

Dog Skills Closing Ceremony

Trapper Trails Council

 

With all the wonderful skills dogs can learn, there is one thing they cannot do. Dogs cannot see colors.  As a matter of fact, monkeys and apes are the only animals that can see colors.

Do you ever feel like you cannot do something because you are too small, too clumsy or too young?  Well next time you do, remember the dog and how he can

retrieve objects, guide the blind, track lost people all without being able to distinguish colors.

A Cubmasterís Closing Thought
Circle 10 Council

 

Boys, I want to tell you a story that has a meaning.  When I was a boy I had three turtles.  They had a beautiful terrarium with rather low sides.  They had everything they needed except one thing . . . FREEDOM.  Every chance they had, they would climb out.

 

People in many countries in this world lack the same thing, FREEDOM.  But not in America.  In America we have Freedom to of Speech, Freedom of the Press, Freedom to go wherever we chose, the Freedom to Worship God as we wish and the Freedom to choose people to govern us.

 

A boy like you can grow up to be wherever he dreams of being.  This is why I love America.  Donít you?   Good Night!

 

Horizons
Heart of America Council

Personnel: Cubmaster or Den Leader

Cubmaster: We often speak of horizons, .not one, but plural, horizons.  Did it ever occur to you that there are more than one?  When you have worked and planned to reach your horizon, you stop to rest and look up to see before you still another horizon just as far away as the last.  When that horizon is within your grasp, wonder of wonders, still another is waiting.  Few men ever reach all horizons, some never even reach the first, and still others never start.  Look at what they miss.  All they ever see is the small area around them.  This is NOT the Cubbing way.  Cub Scouts must reach a series of horizons on their climb to the Arrow of Light.  Small horizons, but they lead to the farther horizons of Scouting and manhood.

 

I Made A Promise
Heart of America Council

Personnel: 5 Cubs & Den Leader

Equipment: Each should have his part printed on a small card he can conceal in his hand or have the part memorized.

Cub 1: I made a promise, I said that whatever I did I would do the best I could.

Cub 2: I made a promise to serve my God and my country the best I could.

Cub 3: I made a promise to help other people the best I could.

Cub 4: I made a promise to obey the Law of the Pack the best I could.

Den Leader: Will everyone now join us in repeating the Cub Scout Promise .
