Join The Cub Scouts
CUB SCOUT Do Your Best
NOTICE Hear Ye
MOTHER Turn the TV down!
Johnny came home from SCHOOL very excited one afternoon. In his hand was a CUB SCOUT NOTICE. It was an invitation to go to a meeting at the SCHOOL that evening.
Now Johnny’s MOTHER was very tired; so when Johnny asked her to go, she said, “We’ll see”. About that time the doorbell rang. It was Sammy, Johnny’s best friend. “Hey,” said Sammy. “Look what I got at SCHOOL today – a NOTICE to join CUB SCOUTS.” At that, Johnny’s MOTHER said she guessed she would go, too.
When Johnny and his MOTHER arrived at the SCHOOL, there were several CUB SCOUT leaders present in uniform. There were also several tables of displays – crafts and pictures. When the program began, the leaders shoed slides of CUB SCOUT activities – Good Turn Day, the Scout show, and the Water Carnival. “Wow”, said Johnny to his MOTHER. “You mean we get to do all of that in CUB SCOUTS? Wow! I sure am glad that I brought that NOTICE home from SCHOOL.”
The Cubmaster explained that the Pack met at the SCHOOL and had passed out the NOTICES to the second and third grade students and the pack planned to form a few new dens. When he asked for volunteers to become den leaders, no one raised their hands. Dead silence prevailed. Finally, Johnny’s MOTHER said, “Well, those pictures make CUB SCOUTS look like a lot of fun. How can I refuse? I’ll be a den leader.”
So that is how Johnny became a CUB SCOUT. And don’t we wish that Den Leaders were that easy to recruit?
