OPENING CEREMONY




Family Talents
Heart of America Council

Cub 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 build things,
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 swell.

I Am America's Heritage
Great Sauk Council

Setting: 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 history.
I am America's heritage. (As narrator finishes, volume of background music is turned up.)
