Pack forms a circle

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress.  Working together is success.”  This is a quote from the famous carmaker, Henry Ford.  All of the dens come together to form the beginning of our pack.  Keeping together at our monthly pack meeting is progress.  Working together in Cub Scouting is surely a success story of which you can have a great part.  Let’s remember this in the coming months.

Please repeat with me the Law of the Pack.  Thanks for coming out for our Pack Meeting tonight. By coming, keeping and working together, we’ve made ever boy in Pack a winner!

Props: A bottle of sunscreen

"Remember the last time you got a bad sun burn? It caused you much pain for several days didn't it? You probably didn't even realize that it was happening.  Sunscreen could have prevented it. Our parents are like sunscreen. They can be used in situations we don't even know can hurt us. It pays to listen to our parents.”

Keeping Fit
Trapper Trails

Cub Scouts, I hold in my hand a pocketknife. This is a valuable tool because it can be used for many useful things. It is a dependable tool as long as the blade is kept sharp and free from rust and the working parts are in good condition. But, if it is neglected and becomes dull and rusty, it can be a dangerous tool. The same principle can be applied to ourselves. We have a body, which when kept in good condition, will serve us well. If we get plenty of exercise, eat the proper foods, and have good health habits, we will be able to enjoy to the fullest the things we do. But if we fail to take care of ourselves, we can become rusty and dull like the neglected knife. Do your best to keep fit!

Our Pinewood Derby
Trapper Trails

At the conclusion of our Pinewood Derby I would like to say that we were all winners here tonight.  Dad has more respect for his son whether he was a humble winner or a graceful loser.  Mom was proud of her son whether she gave him a hug of congratulations or comfort.  The boys gained a better knowledge of competition; how to win, how to lose, how to be happy for a friend, who is taking home the trophy he himself wanted so badly.  The leaders, in the pride they felt knowing that each of their boys had done their best.  Building the car helped bring dad and son closer together.  No, there are only winners here tonight.  Thank you all for helping to male the pack go and the Cub Scouts grow.  Good night and congratulations to all of us winners.
