Circle Ten Council

Boys hold cards spelling "ADIOS" which is Spanish for good-bye. Each boy reads one of the parts and after the last one is read, all boys shout "Adios."

Cub # 1.              A - We came together and had our fun. It seems as though we'd just begun.

Cub # 2.              D - We sang and danced and played some games. And had some fun with Spanish names.

Cub # 3.              I - We ate new foods and learned how Spanish children play and shout.

Cub # 4.              O - We dressed in ponchos we had made, and took siestas in the shade.

Cub # 5.              S - But now the time has come to say, "Adios until another day!" "ADIOS ! "

Thank You Parents

Circle Ten Council

Who got it from Simon Kenton Council

Although not theme related, this could make a great Blue & Gold Closing CD

Personnel: 8 Cub Scouts

Equipment: Large poster divided into 8, when put together has a heart on it with the words THANK YOU in it.
Setting: Each boy has a piece of the heart. After all lines have been read, the first four stand in a line and hold their cards while the second four kneel in front and hold up their cards so that the heart is formed.

Cub # 1.              Our leaders are grand, the best in the land

Cub # 2.              They deserve a thank you, and a big hand, too.

Cub # 3.              This celebration's the time and the place, to tell them we think so, right to their face.

Cub # 4.              So thanks to the Den Leaders, Committee and Cubmaster, at making Scouting fun, they're truly the masters.

Cub # 5.              But there's someone special we don't want to leave out, after all, they're a big part of what Scouting's about.

Cub # 6.              We want to say thank you, Mom and Dad, and tell you that we are really glad.

Cub # 7.              To have you as parents, yes it's true, because of your help and all that you do.

Cub # 8.              To help us through Scouting's achievements and ranks you truly deserve our heartfelt thanks.

Cubmaster’s Minutes

"All I Know About Life, I Learned From My Mexican Chihuahua"

[This dog actually did originate in Mexico]

Great Salt Lake Council

·         If you stare at someone long enough, eventually you'll get what you want.

·         If it's not wet and sloppy, it's not a real kiss.

·         Be aware of when to hold your tongue and when to use it.

·         Leave room in your schedule for a good nap.

·         Don't go out without your ID

·         When you do something wrong, always take responsibility (as soon as you're dragged out from under the bed).

·         Be direct with people; let them know exactly how you feel by jumping up on them.

·         When you go out into the world, remember: always take time to smell the roses. and fire hydrants, trees, grass, legs, sandals, car tires, rocks, pots, sidewalk cracks, plants growing in the sidewalk, fences, etc.

The Meaning of Fiesta

Santa Clara County Council

In Spanish, fiesta means a party with music, wonderful food, dancing, laughter and fireworks.  In any language, it means fun.  Let us take a moment to reflect on the fun and fellowship we share whenever we’re together, and resolve to continue to do everything we can to give our scouts the chance to have fun while learning and growing.
