Cub #1:  (Enters carrying a Bible or other religious book).

Narrator:  We are faithful to our religious practices and learn to respect those of a different faith than our own.

Cub #2:  (Enters in complete Cub Scout uniform)

Narrator:  The two colors of the Cub Scout uniform have meaning.  Blue stands for truth and loyalty; gold stands for cheer and happiness.  (Holds up BLUE and GOLD signs).

Cub #3:  (Enters carrying Wolf and Jungle Book).

Early Cub Scout ceremonies were based on Kipling’s Jungle Tales.  When Cub Scouting was organized in America in 1930, Native American themes were used.

Cub #4:  (Enters with a craft project).  Cub Scouting means fun.  We have lots of fun.  I like making things…real boy projects…things we can use.

Cub #5:  (Enters with nature collection)  I like to go on hikes and collect things for my nature collection.

Cub #6:  (Enters with buddy burner)  We Cub Scouts sure do like to eat.  I like to go on picnics and cookouts.  This the cook stove I made.

Cub #7:  (Enter with the American flag).  I am proud to be an American so I can salute the flag.  I am part of a world wide organization.  I belong!

Narrator:  Yes, I represent the past and the present.  These boys, Cub Scouts, are the men of tomorrow.  They will be the preservers of our heritage.  These young men are our future.
