Collection Closing Ceremony
Equipment A single twig and a bundle of twigs
I hold in my hand several twigs. You
can see that one twig alone is easy to break (demonstrate by breaking a single
twig in two), but when I collect a bunch of twigs and bundle them together, they
are almost impossible to break (make an unsuccessful effort to break the bundle
of twigs). There is strength in numbers. As a nation - a collection
- of people working together to preserve our freedom and heritage, we can
keep our country strong.
Please stand with me and honor the
symbol of our great country as we retire the colors. Color Guard, advance and
retire the colors.
The Magic Candles
Connecticut Rivers Council
Set Up - On head table are
arranged magic candles, which should be lighted as ceremony begins
Narrator: Our candle stands
tall, straight and white. It burns and gives forth ≠inspiring light. As its
tight shines forth, you will see our colors blue and gold are regal as can be.
As the blue appears, thing of truth and loyalty, the sky so blue, steadfastness
and spirituality. When the gold shines forth, be of good cheer and think of
happiness and sunlight so clear. As our candle's flame reaches toward the sky so
blue, let us ask our God to give us wisdom to lead each boy straight and true.
Mold each of us to be like our candles, straight and tall, and be inspired to
give to God and our country our all.
(To make "magic candles" use
tall white candles. Drill 1/4" diameter holes every two inches down opposite
sides of the candle. Place scraping of blue and gold crayons in the holes. Melt
paraffin and whip with eggbeater. Cover candle with whipped paraffin using a
fork to give the candle a rough decoration. As the white candle burns it will
drip blue and gold wax decoratively down the side of the candle.)
Southern NJ Council
Many people of all ages have
discovered the fun of collecting things. Whether you collect rocks or stamps or
model cars, it's exciting to be on the watch for a new item to add your
collection and to see that collection grow. Some collections, such as rare
sports cards, can be worth a lot of money. Other collections have no great
dollar value. But there is one thing that you can collect which is worth more
than anything else; good turns. In the Cub Scout Law of the Pack, we say, "The
Cub Scout gives good will." That means that a Cub Scout is always on the lookout
for ways to be helpful and kind to other people. When you accumulate acts of
good will toward others, you are the wisest collector of them all.
Southern NJ Council
Cubmaster pull out the collection of stuff he/she carries in his/her pockets and
explain why it is carried and how it helps one be prepared for emergencies with
it. Then conclude with Ė
Cubmaster: Everything a boy
collects in his pockets or elsewhere is important to him, just as he and his
family is important to our pack. We have to work together to be successful, if
our pack is successful, each of us will feel good about ourselves and each
other. Letís remember to be prepared by what we carry in our pockets and our
lives and be successful.
