Simon Kenton Council
To enhance the Halloween atmosphere, turn
out the lights and have a candlelight processional for the color guard unit.
Use more than just a few Cubs, use most of the Pack to create lots of light.
If candies are not feasible because of carpeting or whatever, use flashlights
with orange tissue paper covers to dim the brightness somewhat.
House lights should not be turned on until after the pledge has been
you may see
Witches on their brooms.
Tonight you may witness
The man on the moon.
Tonight you may hear
All sorts of scary sounds.
Tonight you may be scared
Of what comes up from the ground.
Don't scream, Don't be frightened,
Most of all don't fear
It's only Halloween that comes,
But once a year
Please join me now
in the Pledge of Allegiance.

National Capital Area Council
one dark night, without a star;
Add one thin cat, as black as tar,
Turn on a wind, to shriek and moan,
Stir in ghost, with wail and groan.
Stuff three pumpkins with witches' bane,
Top with a slice of moon on the wane;
Flavor with bats, and things unseen
Boil and serve chilled. It's Halloween.
are strange things you may meet,
On Halloween upon your street
Witches, goblins, spooks you dread,
Silent ghosts without a head.
Don't be frightened, for you see,
Underneath are friends like me!

Heart of America Council
Narrator and 4 Cubs
Cub Scouts in farm work clothing parade into meeting room by dens to
recorded farm music. Extinguish lights and shine spotlight on U.S. flag.
A narrator speaks from behind the curtain.
Agriculture, the oldest work done by man, means “taking care of the
fields”. It is the work and
science of using the earth to produce food.
1: Farming means about the
same thing, but we generally use the term when referring to a particular branch,
such as dairy farming, chicken farming, cotton farming, wheat or vegetable
farming. There have been farmers since history began. Cain, the first man born
on earth, the son of Adam and Eve, was a tiller of the soil.
2: Farm life, was quite different in days past. Entire families including
children, had to carry their share of the load in order to raise enough food for
themselves. The family did not have much time for comfortable living .
3: Crowing roosters still announce dawn on many American farms. In the
early morning fresh odors of growing crops and blooming flowers fill the air.
Even before daybreak, in farm country, lights begin to twinkle as folks rise
early to feed the animals and do the chores.
4: Now may we all stand and sing “America the Beautiful”.
