CUBMASTER: "Speaking" is a form of communication
most of us take for granted. If you can hear me speaking, then you probably
have not had much reason to learn sign language. It is something very special
to be able to speak, but make no sound, communicate with eyes and hands rather
than voices and ears. It is indeed a talent, not just a trick for fun. For
those who cannot hear; it is a way of life. In front of you is the sign
language alphabet. Let's see if we can recognize our Scouts for their past
month's achievements and learn a little of the silent language known as
The first recipient comes, forward and is greeted by
the Cubmaster. His award is announced vocally and then by Sign. Each award is
presented in the same fashion.
CUBMASTER: 1 hope you have all learned just a
little of the silent world of sign language. Maybe next time you see your
fellow Scouts at a distance, you can talk to them without yelling or maybe
next time you see two people speaking "Sign" you will understand a little
better that special talent both share.
Show the boys a box of cracker jacks. Inside you will
find a prize. Draw each of the boys’ awards from the box. Let the parents
Present the awards to their sons. After all the awards have been handed out
say the following to the boys.
The label says that the prize is inside. I really think
that the prize is on the outside. Why? You receive the prize in life when you
go outside of your own box or comfort zone.
Sometimes going out of your way for others is the only
way to really help others and feel accomplished in what you do.
This month we have learned how to help others and be
aware of others differences. I hope that we will always think of others and
how they would feel about the things we say or the actions we do. So thinking
"This is the way we have always have done it" doesn't cut it any more. As
Scouts, parents, and a community we can change the intolerance in the world
Acting Parts In Life
CUBMASTER: Tonight we would like to congratulate
boys in the pack on the advancements they have made over the last month. Would
the following boys ___________please come forward with their parents to be
presented with their award. After presenting the boys with their advancement
say the following:
Our lives are made up of many different acts or parts. As
young boys, you act the part of a Webelos, or a Cub. In school you act the
part of a student. At home you act the part of a son. Whatever part you act,
do what is right and do your best so you too someday may be a good parent and
a good citizen just like all the adults around you today. Continue to advance
and learn as you enjoy your Scouting program.
