GIVE - A Cub Scout Gives Goodwill (Give
PACK - A Cub Scout Helps the Pack Go
CUB SCOUT - Do Your Best (Give sign)
This is the story
of a CUB SCOUT who wanted to do something to HELP his neighbor. She was a
widow, and much too old to do very much for herself.
This CUB SCOUT
wanted to FOLLOW the advice of his PACK leaders, who asked every CUB SCOUT
to find some way they could GIVE HELP to someone else.
The best way he
could think of to HELP his neighbor would be to shovel the snow off her
driveway for her. But it was such a big driveway and he was such a little
So he thought some
more and decided he would go and talk to his PACK leaders and see if they
could think of a way to HELP him. The PACK leaders said they would ask if
any other CUB SCOUTS would like to HELP.
So what started
with only one CUB SCOUT was soon being done by two CUB SCOUTS then three CUB

(Continue adding CUB SCOUTS
until the audience starts to laugh.)
The moral of this
story is that if you FOLLOW the advice of your PACK leaders, and GIVE HELP
to those around you; you too could be a great CUB SCOUT.

they all said.
So each went home
and made special plans for the next Den meeting and the special BIRTHDAY
PARTY for their DEN LEADER.
Den Meeting day
dawned bright and sunny. At 3:30 all five boys arrived at their DEN LEADER’S
house. Mike and Ike brought a BIRTHDAY CAKE. Jimmy brought paper hats,
Johnny brought balloons and Billy brought ice cream for the BIRTHDAY PARTY.
As they trooped in
the door, they all yelled, “Surprise! We’re having a BIRTHDAY PARTY”. Mrs.
Reid, their DEN LEADER looked shocked. “My BIRTHDAY PARTY? Why? It’s not my
But we heard you
talking about a special BIRTHDAY PARTY on the phone last week, said Jimmy.
“Oh,” said their DEN LEADER, and smiled. “It’s Cub Scouting’s birthday,” she
said. “Cub Scouting is 75 years old this month. But I think this is a
wonderful idea. We’ll just celebrate a little early. “
And so they did.
And that is how CUB DEN 1 and their DEN LEADER had a very special BIRTHDAY
