Come & Get It
Great Salt Lake Council

When we are really hungry, the words, “Come and get it!,” have a joyous ring to them. We are delighted to go and fill the hollow spot in our stomachs with all the good things there are to eat.

Cub Scouting can use the phrase, “Come and get it!” This offers to all boys the opportunity to participate in a program that will mean FUN most of all, and the chance to become closer to parents and to learn new, exciting things.

Be sure to take advantage of the good things in life and “Come and get it” in Cub Scouts, too!

Good Health:
Russ, Timucua District

We take our bodies and good health pretty much for granted when we are well, strong, and feeling good. But when our health is not up to its best, then we possibly have not done our best to take care of ourselves by practicing good healthy habits and eating the proper foods. Each one of us needs to be strong and healthy to be able to contribute to our family, community, and nation as strong citizens.

Sharing Scouting:
Russ, Timucua District

Tonight as we think about gathering around the campfire, enjoying a good meal together, and especially enjoying one another’s company, let’s not forget those who do not have the same good fortune as we have.

Is it because they aren’t as good as we are? NO! Is it because they don’t have the money it takes to be in Scouting?

Probably not. Or is it maybe that they just don’t know about the wonderful times Scouting offers? Most probably.

Maybe we need to reach out a hand and invite them to join us. So as we leave tonight, let’s commit ourselves to remember the good times we have together and to go find someone else and invite him to join us in the fun we have.

Breaking Bread Together:
Russ, Timucua District

Sharing a meal together is one of our greatest traditions.  In most religions, the meal plays an important part in celebrating the faith.

As Americans, we celebrate our bounty and our graces with the Thanksgiving meal.  And yet, as important as breaking bread together is to us, there are still those around us who live from day to day not knowing where or how they will get their next meal.

As we close tonight, let’s commit ourselves to reach out a little bit more to those around us in need. Dig a little deeper when someone asks for help. Remember that we are blessed and our blessings are not our own doing, but come from God.  So the next time you see a homeless person or an unkempt child in the streets, remember that they need us and we can help them. Lend a helping hand.

Cubmaster’s Salad
San Gabriel Valley-Long Beach Area-Verdugo Hills Councils

Take bears and bobcats, wolves and Webelos, throw in den leaders and a whole lot of fun.  Spice it up with a Cubmaster and serve over the committee garnished with family.  What you’ve got is a recipe for a great future.  What kind of “dish” do you want your boy to be a part of?
