In any unit that I relate to there are ceremonies designed to invest the
scout into the troop or into an office. Some units do not use them, but most
successful ones do. I have always enjoy the candle ceremony that my troop
uses to induct the boy into the troop with the scout rank. The ceremony
was printed in a former edition of the Scoutmaster's Handbook.
Yours in scouting, Bob Sargeant, DC for the GW District, NCAC, BSA. The old
fox. Opinions are mine in the scouting spirit.
