‘Tis the Season Closing
Cubmaster: This is the season of lights. It is a
time when the days are shorter so the nights are longer, yet somehow things are
brighter. Stores and homes are bright with holiday lights. Thousands of homes
have a single light to show the way for the Christ child, others have candles
burning to commemorate the miracle of Hanukkah, and some light candles to honor
the heritage of Kwanzaa. Even the stars in the winter sky seem brighter at this
time of year. But the most important glow is from the spirit of goodwill that We
live with year-round in the Cub Scout Promise and the Law of the Pack. Before we
all leave to get on with our holiday celebrations, let's stand and repeat the
Promise and Law together. Happy Holidays!
Scout’s Act Of Kindness Closing
Cubmaster: To end this evening, I’d like to tell you
A crowded bus stopped to pick up a bent old woman. With
great difficulty she struggled up the steps with a large basket of freshly
washed laundry. “You’ll have to put your basket in the rear of the bus,” the
bus driver said impatiently. “I do not dare. They do not belong to me.” The
woman replied. The driver was firm. “You and that basket are in the way. Either
stow it or get off.”
The old lady was almost in tears when a young man arose.
“You sit here, Ma’am,” he offered. “I’ll take your basket to the back and watch
it until your stop. ”The woman was doubtful, but the bus driver was about to
put her off. A second lady, sitting nearby, said to the old woman, “That boy’s
all right. Can’t you see his uniform? I’ll vouch for him.” The woman soon took
a seat, and the basket of clothes carried to the rear. At her stop, the boy
gently set the basket down by her, then returned to the bus and continued on his
way. “Who’s the kid?” asked the driver to the second woman. “I do not know the
kid,” was the reply, “But I do know the uniform, and you can trust it every
In this season of giving and helping, let’s make certain we
remember what our uniform means to others and to ourselves.
Most of us are happiest when we are doing something for
others. Think for a moment of a time when you were helpful to someone. Chances
are, it made you feel pretty good. Of course, we feel best when we do something
for others without being found out. When we help others regularly, it soon
becomes a habit and to be a natural thing. Once you have establish this habit,
you will learn the real meaning of the good turn.

are some of the things that will make working together and playing together
easier: To tell the truth, to be honest, to be courteous, to have respect for
leaders and to think of others as well as ourselves.

Set Up –
Scouts and family members cut out snowflakes when they enter the pack meeting
and put their names on them. (Folding a square sheet of paper in half, and then
into thirds can make six sided snowflakes). Tape or fasten to a wall, curtain,
blackboard or window.
ever caught a snowflake on a black piece of paper and studied it? It is so
delicate and fragile that it melts almost before you can pick out its unique
shape and structure. And it is unique, because each snowflake forms its own
pattern of crystals in a six-sided shape. No two are exactly alike. There may be
some that are similar, but none are the same.
you created a snowflake tonight. Look at the variety and differences. Each of
you started out with the same materials, but you created something that is truly
unique. Every person is unique, too. You may have your Mom’s eyes, or your Dad’s
sense of humor. You may even be a twin and look so much alike that people have
trouble telling you apart. But you are different in the things you like, the
things you think, and the way you live your lives. You have your own unique
contribution to make to the world. You have your own unique gifts and talents
that will benefit you and those around you. You have your own unique style,
laugh, dreams, and strengths.
snowflake will melt in an instant, but think of what happens when all those
snowflakes are together in one place at one time. A pile of snow can make a ski
jump, block a highway, collapse a roof. A mountain of snow can provide water for
a town for the whole summer, or carve the sides of a canyon. A lot of snow can
accomplish things one snowflake can’t, but it takes all of them working together
to be successful.
unite ourselves, each unique individual, and work toward the common goals of
citizenship, service, brotherhood, physical and spiritual strength, and see what
a contribution we can make to the world. Let’s stand and repeat the Cub Scout
Promise and the Law of the Pack.
