1: We may not be able to sing and dance,
To ride a horse, or throw a lance,
But there are some things we do real good,
And without each other there's no way we could.
Cub 2: Dad coaches soccer and I
play on the team,
Mom and my sister root and scream,
When I block a goal or make a pass,
My whole family gets in the act.
Cub 3: On Saturday mornings we
like to bake bread,
It a wonderful way to get out of bed,
Mom adds the yeast, Dad kneads the dough,
I get the oven ready, you know.
Cub 4: My Dad and I like to
You wouldn't believe the fun this brings!
We've made doghouses and bookcases and closet shelves.
And talk a lot while we're busy as elves.
Cub 5: We like to ride bikes, my
family and me;
The fresh air is great out in the country.
Up and down hills, east and then west,
We see a lot, but the ride home is best.
Cub 6: I bet there's lots of
things you can do.
Think about it the try a few.
Get Mom and Dad in there to help.
You'll find family fun is really

Great Sauk Council
Room is darkened. Pack
flag and American flag are spotlighted.
Patriotic background music is played.
Narrator: There it is. It's still flying. It has been a long night and as the dawn
appears and the smoke clears, it is fluttering in the breeze.
I am the American Revolution
and the valiant patriots who lost their lives that this nation might live.
I am Paul Revere and his midnight ride.
I am Nathan Hale and his stand for freedom.
I am George Washington crossing the Delaware.
I am the Boston Tea Party and Bunker Hill.
I am Kings fountain and Milford Courthouse.
I am the Constitution of the United States, the Bill of Rights, and the
symbol of religious freedom.
I am the War of 1812 and the Mexican War.
I am the Alamo and the Battle of Bull Run.
I am the Monroe Doctrine and the Spanish American War.
I am World War I and the depression of 1929.
I am Pearl Harbor, World War II, the Korean conflict and Vietnam. I am the pain and sorrow, the happiness
and joy of bygone days. I have seen
poverty and wealth, dread and anticipation, hate and love. I have seen America through all her
I am America's heritage. (As
narrator finishes, volume of background music is turned up.)
