Eagle COH/Protocol Question

I've just received an invitation to the Eagle COH of the son of a friend
(and former employee). The Scout is also a former (summer) employee, and
I'm assuming I've been invited because I wrote a letter of recommendation
for the young man before his Eagle Board of Review. I have no other
connection with this young man's scouting career.
Based on earlier comments, I thought I'd take my eight year old son
(working on his Bear badge) to the COH (the invitation came to "The Foss
Family") -- I though it might make a good impression on my son, and give
him a vision of where he might want to go with Scouting.
The questions I need help with are:
1. Should my son wear his Cub Scout uniform?
2. Should I wear MY uniform, as Assistant Cubmaster of my son's pack?
Remember, I have no link to the Eagle's unit -- I don't want to
appear to have an "official" presence if it's not warranted!
Thanks in advance for any advice!
