CEREMONIES FOR UNIT LEADERS
The Cubmaster is the center of the skit. He or she goes to
center stage while another adult "runs the show." This adult begins by
introducing the Cubmaster and explaining the important role he/she plays.

also has other responsibilities, especially as there isn't enough adult
support to make things happen. Depending on the open positions and just
how much you want to drive home the point, either use only the open
positions or use a bunch of different positions. For each "job," the
talker hands over a symbol of the task described. Some examples that are

I think you get the picture. Anyway, after overflowing the
Cubmaster with all sorts of jobs, the talker stops and says "Unless you
help, he's going to drop those eggs." Then he/she starts taking the
symbols from the Cubmaster and hands them out to the people in
the assembly. The last time we did this, the people who
had been given the symbols came up after the meeting expecting and
accepting that they had been given these new jobs! I tell you, this
