Its Up to You
Heart of America Council

Personnel: 5 Cub Scouts

Equipment: None

1st Cub: God gave you this day to do just what you would,
You can throw it away; or do some good.

2nd Cub: You can make someone happy; or make someone sad.
What have you done with the day that you had?

3rd Cut: God gave it to you to do just as you would,
you can do what is wrong; or do what is good.

4th Cub: You can hand out a smile; or just give em a frown,
You can lift someone up; or just put them down.

5th Cub: What did you do with your beautiful day? 
God gave it to you; did you throw it away?


Happy Faces
Heart of America Council

Personnel: 8 Cub Scouts

Equipment: A happy face sign for each

1st Cub: I think there were 1,000 smiles here tonight, but did you know

2nd Cub: A smile costs nothing,

3rd Cub: But creates much.

4th Cub: It happens in a flash, but the memory sometimes lasts forever.

5th Cub: It cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen,

6th Cub: But it is of no earthly good to anyone unless it is given away.

7th Cub: So, if in your hurry and rush you meet someone who is too weary to give you a smile, leave one of yours.

8th Cub: No one needs a smile quite as much as a person who has none left to give.


Magic of The World
York Adams Area Council

As parents, we want to show our sons the wonders of the world. In the eyes of a child, there are not just eight wonders of the world but eight million.  We want him to be able to look at the stars, sunrise, sunset, and feel their beauty.

         We want them to see a world of love, laughter, and compassion.

          We want them to build strength within themselves of strong character and a sensitivity to the needs of others.

          We want them to be the best they can be.

Unfortunately, no one can wave a magic wand so that they will receive these things. We as leaders and parents must set the example to show the guidance so they may see the way to accomplish all of these things.  This is the magic; Our example and guidance.

So as we leave, let's be aware of our actions and how loudly they speak to our youth.
