Volume 5 Issue 11
June 1999


A member of our Roundtable staff (Greater Alabama Council) brought up an idea, that I had forgotten from a long, long time ago. I guess I am growing old and feeble. Anyway the idea is quite simple and is a fun way to introduce a cheer. Get a small Cheer Box, clean it out, and voila, you have a Cheer Box for all the cheers. You can take all the cheers/applause that you have put each one on a slip of paper then drop them in your Cheer Box. During the pack meeting call up one of your scouts to pick a cheer out of the Cheer Box (No peeking!), then let him lead the cheer.

What is the difference between a Cub Scout going to the second floor of the Empire State Building and a Cub Scout looking upstairs the Empire State Building?
-One is stepping upstairs and the other is staring up steps.

Librarian: Please be quiet, little boy. The people near you can't even read.
Noisy little boy: Then what are they doing here in a library?
