WHERE IS YOUR HOME?
Bay Area Council Pow Wow, 1994
Via Circle Ten Council
Divide the audience into two groups
and have them respond to the following key words:
Home: "Home on the Range"
United States: "This Land is your Land"
Be it ever so humble, there's no
place like HOME.
No matter where in the UNITED
STATES you may roam.
You may travel all over the UNITED
But your HOME state with you always
Some choose to roam while others
Always in their HOME state 'til
their dying day.
No matter in what part of the
UNITED STATES your HOME state may be,
There's one thing everyone says you
And everybody I'm sure will
HOME is where you hang your hat!
Here’s a newly
written one for Utah. Could you write one for your state?? CD
Scouting on the
Great Salt Lake
Divide audience into three parts and assign each apart. Whenever their name
is said, they are to respond as follows:
KEN - Bear leader!"
CLAIR - "Guide leader!"
SCOUT--- "Do your best!"
Ekker was a Cub SCOUT Bear Den
Leader. KEN was also a computer whiz.
He was one of the first to get an e-mail
address and encouraged others to get one too. He discovered that there were
many SCOUTING sites. Sometimes he would communicate with someone and
then find out he or she lived in a foreign country. Soon he was corresponding
with other SCOUTERS all over the world. He discovered a SCOUTER
in England. Her name was CLAIR and she was a SCOUT Leader for 8 &
9-year-old boys and girls. In England they are called Guides. They called
themselves the Cellar Dwellers, because they met in the basement of an old
After KEN and CLAIR had
corresponded for a while, CLAIR told KEN that she had always
wanted to come and visit America. KEN invited her over, and soon
CLAIR arrived at Salt Lake International Airport.. KEN, and his
wife, Lee, had CLAIR stay at their house and took her all over to show
her the tourist spots.
Utah has a completely different look and
feel than England has. She was amazed at the mountains and canyons, the
desert, the Great Salt Lake, and how few people there were in such a large
area. She was surprised that she could visit three SCOUT shops for
three different districts within 90 miles. Everyone was so friendly and kind
to her that CLAIR loved it in Utah. When she left, she invited KEN
& Lee to come to England where she could show them the sites.
