The following is an email I got from CSManyhats letting me know how the Bugle goes out at her RT. Neat idea.
Baloo's Bugle is a great resource, but it is so big my council office won't let me make enough copies for everyone at roundtable. So, I give it away as a door prize. Now, it has become one of the most popular door prizes. Keep up the good work!
I would like to thank Steve for sending me this ceremony he wrote for his pack. He used it for the World Conservation Award and it was written around the Native American Theme.
Persons involved: Akela (Cubmaster), Baloo (Assistant CM), Cub Scouts receiving World Conservation Award.
(Akela and Baloo stand up front.)
Akela: As we all know, the land is very important to us. This desire to cherish the land goes back long before our time, to a time when the deer, wolf, and bear ran freely through our forests. To a time when the salmon and shad swam up our rivers to hatch their young in the clear waters. To a time when the eagle and other creatures of the air could fly in clear blue skies. We have been given dominion over the land by our Great Spirit. It is our responsibility to take care of what we have been given. In order to learn what we can do to preserve the land for our future generations, every Cub Scout has the opportunity to participate in completing the requirements for the World Conservation Award.
We have several Cubs here tonight who have done just that. As I call out your names, please come forward and stand with Akela and Baloo and receive your award.
(Cubs come forward and receive their award from Baloo)
Steve Harter, Cubmaster
