CEREMONIES FOR UNIT LEADERS
Leader Induction Ceremony
National Capital Area Council
Props: 5 candles, candle board with two holes in top and three holes in bottom
Committee Chairperson: Before you is a ceremony board that has five candles in it. The top two, like the alert ears of a Wolf, represent the two upright fingers of the Cub Scout sign. They mean to OBEY and TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE.
The three candles at the bottom represent the folded fingers of our Cub Scout sign. These three fingers stand for the three secret letters in our law; F--H--G. These letters mean FOLLOWS, HELPS, GIVES. They also mean FAIR, HAPPY, GAME, and, finally, they can remind us of something each Cub Scout respects: FREEDOM, HOME and GOD.
All of our leaders want to do their best to teach Cub Scouts to learn to follow, to help, to give, to be fair and happy, whatever the game might be, and to respect their freedom, home and God.
Will the new leaders please come forward? Please repeat after me:
I, ______________ , promise to do my best, to help the Cub Scouts in my den and in my Pack to do their best, to help other people, and to do their duty to God and their country, and to obey the Law of the Pack.
As Chairperson of Pack _____________ , I take pleasure in presenting to you your registration cards and badges of office and personally welcome you into active leadership in Cub Scouting. May the days ahead be happy, great and fair.
