Blue & Gold/ Arrow of Light Ceremony Friday Night

BlueAndGoldOur annual Blue and Gold event will be this Friday night (March 10). This is the Cub Scouts “birthday party” and annual celebration of Cub Scouts. This year we will also be hosting our Arrow of Light and Crossing Over Ceremonies the same night. These ceremonies will recognize our 5th grade Webelo II scouts and celebrate their experience and hard work in the Cub Scouts. They can then do a Crossing Over ceremony which symbolizes their promotion from Cub Scouts and the beginning of their adventures as Boy Scouts. Please join us in celebrating Cub Scouts and our Webelos. Thank you to the parents who have supported the boys and the pack throughout their journey!

Congratulations Webelo II scouts! Pack 1863 wishes you a fun and exciting adventure wherever it takes you!

February-Friendly

Friends Near and Far A Scout Is Friendly. How Does “Friends Near and Far” Relate to This Point of the Scout Law? A Scout is a friend to all. He is a brother to other Scouts. He offers his friendship to people of all races and nations, and respects the beliefs and customs of others. “Friends Near and Far” reminds us that we are part of something bigger than our own community. By living the Scout Law, we are accepting of the world’s peoples and their values.

A Scout Is Obedient. How Does “Cub Scout City Council” Relate to This Point of the Scout Law? A Cub Scout follows the rules of his family, school, and pack.

Cubmaster’s Minute

This month you have had great adventures, but you have also learned about always doing your best and obeying the Scout Law. Rules and laws are important. Following the rules and laws help make our community a better place to live because there is order. I challenge each of you to do your best each day to make your community better by obeying not only the rules and laws of your home, school, and community, but by following the Scout Law each and every day. Remember, a Scout is obedient.

Pack Meeting Tonight at 7 p.m.

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween! Our November Pack Meeting will be tonight at 7 p.m. at GBE. Our November theme is COURTEOUS- Cubs in Shining Armor.

A Scout Is Courteous. How Does “Cubs in Shining Armor” Relate to This Point of the Scout Cub_Scout_CharactersLaw? A Scout knows good manners make it easier for people to get along together. The word “courteous” is an old English word that comes from the time of knights. Many associate chivalry and graciousness with a knight in shining armor because of their code of conduct. The knight’s code of conduct extols these virtues, ensuring that a Cub Scout in shining armor will exhibit courtesy to all.

In our lives, we encounter many people and have many chances to make an impact on their lives. Showing kindness in small ways might make a difference for someone who really needs it. Don’t wait for the perfect moment to do something kind for others; do what you can each day to show you are kind.
