Stop the Presses Opening
Trapper Trails Council

Personnel: Five Cubs
Equipment: A rolled newspaper for each boy
Set Up: The Cub Scouts run onto stage. As each Cub Scout repeats his part, he opens the paper to "read".
All Cubs: Extra! Extra! Let us read to you all about it!

1st Cub: Wow! The headline says there's going to be a great Pack meeting for Pack (number) tonight! Sounds like fun!
2nd Cub: Hey! The Who's Who page says there's going to be some advancements and awards given out. That sounds neat!
3rd Cub: Would you look at the sports page? It says there's going to be fun games and activities for everyone. This is sounding exciting!
4th Cub: Cool! The food section talks about the great refreshments that will be served. I know I can't wait!
5th Cub: Hey Guys! In the comic section it says there's going to be some hilarious and funny skits and jokes. You know, that reminds me of a joke. What's black and white and black and white and black and white and black and white and read all over? A zebra, skunk, and Dalmatian reading a newspaper! Great joke, huh?!

All Cubs: Now that we've let you know what's going on we hope you'll enjoy the pack meeting as much as we will!!

Stop The Presses
Greater St. Louis Area Council

(Scout holds up "headline' from newspaper which states "Man Lost in Fog").
This 1909 headline is important to all of us because it marks the beginning of Scouting in America. A Chicago businessman, William Boyce, was list in a London fog. A Scout helped him find his way and the rest is history.

Come dear Lord, be our guest
As we gather together.
May our heart grow with love,
Keep us close to you ever.
Friendship and joy, may they

Thank you God, for this day,

Bloom and grow forever.
