CLOSING CEREMONY

Folklore Closing
Simon Kenton Council


Personnel: Five Cubs and 2 Den Leaders
Equipment: Costumes for Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, Pecos Bill, Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett, Charlie Parkhurst, and Molly Brown.

Cub 1: I'm Paul Bunyan, the lumberman who leveled a forest in one swing of my ax. My constant companion was Babe the Blue Ox.

Cub 2: I'm Johnny Appleseed, a missionary who planted orchards in the wilderness. My friends were settlers and Indians alike.

Cub 3: I'm Pecos Bill, I was raised by the coyotes. I fought a ten-foot rattlesnake, tamed it and used it for a whip.

Cub 4: I'm Daniel Boone, hunter and trailmaker who led settlers over the Allegheny Mountains in Kentucky.

Cub 5: I'm Davy Crockett, backwoods hero, member of Congress, and one of the defender of the Alamo.

Leader 1: I'm Charlie Parkhurst, a stagecoach driver before there were railroads. I'm unusual because I'm a lady.

Leader 2: I'm Molly Brown, I lived in Leadville, Colorado. Denver society never accepted me, but I was on the Titanic when it went down in 1912 and helped save the survivors.

All: We are folklore characters. But you can see, we all had adventure and as much fun as can be. Goodnight!!!
