Each part of the world has its own unique treasures: both natural and manmade. As we travel from one part of the world to another, we add to our store of experiences.

Today, we are happy to honor men of our pack who have vetured into BIG IDEAS.

Will the following Tigers and their partners please come forward?

Our Wolves have learned about balanced diets, the food group for rice and squid. In the Orient, chopsticks are used for eating. Our Wolves are gaining many skills. Would the following Wolves and their parents please come forward?

The Bears in our pack have succeeded in climbing the Great Wall along the scouting trail. They have accomplished items for God, Self, Family, and Country. Would the following Bears and their parents please come forward?

As Japan is the Land of the rising Sun, so are our Webelos. They are leading the way from the sunset of Cub Scouting into the sunrise of Boy Scouting. Would the following young Webelos and their parents please come forward?

Gateway to the Orient
Heart of America Council

Personnel: Cubmaster, 2 Cub, Cubs advancing and Parents

Equipment: Cubmaster is dressed in oriental dress, a cardboard box shaped like a pagoda with the awards inside.

Cubmaster: Since our theme this month is Gateway to the Orient we decided to have two of our Cub Scouts go exploring in the Orient to see what they could find. Look, here they come now.

Let’s see what they have…(Two Cub Scouts enter carrying the pagoda which they place on the ground by the Cubmaster on a table by the Cubmaster.

Thanks boys, let’s see what you have. (Cubmaster opens pagoda and pulls out the first awards to be handed out.) The first treasure I have found are badges for (Cub Scouts names). Will those Cub Scouts please come forward? (Cubmaster says something special about the rank being earned). Parents, we are pleased at the progress your son has made, and know that he could not have done it without you. I present to you, his badge and ask that you present it to him.

(Present the badges to parents to hand to the Scouts. Once this is done, Cubmaster turns to the audience.) Help me congratulate these boys by giving them applause.

If you are patient in a moment of anger
You will escape a hundred days of sorrow.
