You should try to keep these lights burning within
you at all times. If, for some reason, you should slip and fail to
keep one of the laws - for example, if you fail to show good will,
and are unkind (blow out the candle for Good Will) - the Spirit of
Cub Scouting will rekindle the light showing Good Will (Re-light the
Good Will candle)
Arrangement: Newly inducted Bobcats and their
parents at front of the room.
As a parent of a Cub Scout,

May he wear it with the pride of Scouting as he continues on his next adventure (present bead, ask Cub Scout to give the Cub Scout Motto).
Secret Message Recognition
For each Cub Scout to be recognized, prepare a sheet
of paper with a "Secret Message" on it, by writing on it
in milk or lemon juice (as shown in the Wolf Cub Scout book). When
the paper is held carefully over a heat source such as a light bulb,
the message will appear:
Witches Cauldron - Pull awards out of cauldron. Dress like a witch or ghoul. If you put dry ice in empty milk carton in the cauldron and add a little water a few minutes before the awards are presented, it will be brewing. Pack awards outside the milk carton in the cauldron. Always use caution when using dry ice. Handle with gloves, do not put in your mouth and KEEP AWAY FROM THE KIDS!
Ghost - Attach awards to these ghosts or put in balloons. Blow up balloon and cover with white tissue paper. Tie with black and orange ribbon. Draw eyes.
