OPENING CEREMONY

Footprints on the Moon
Miami Valley Council

As curtain opens a den of Cub Scouts dressed as astronauts are lined up across the stage. There are large astronaut footprints cut out of black paper and taped on to stage floor. These footprints lead from off stage to center of stage where there is a flag stand. A Cub Scout astronaut enters from side of stage following line of footprints and puts the flag in the stand and narrator at microphone at side of stage reads following:

The United States has much to be proud of. One of those many things is the fact that the United States was first on the moon where Old Glory was placed as evidence of this eventful day. This, indeed, is something for all of us to be proud of, and as we all join together in the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag, let us be thankful for the courageous astronauts of our country who helped make it possible for our flag to be erected on the moon, so that some day some of our own Cub Scouts may be able to leave their mark on society by leaving their footprint on the moon, too! Please rise now and join me in the Pledge of Allegiance.
