Starting the year off on Cubs is always exciting for me as we do all the
graduation ceremonies and have a reception following it. In reviewing my
ceremonies and recognitions I found I did not have anything that was "right"
for my now to be second year Webelos. I had head some ideas from some of you
and people at our round table of what might be in a recognition ceremony.
Below is what I came up with. I hope you might find it helpful to you.
Webelos 1 Year to 2nd Year Recognition
Scouts remain in audience standing by their chairs.
Cubmaster: (To the audience) Tonight I have the honor to recognize a group
of Webelos Scouts who will become our Pack's Senior Scouts. Will all the
Webelos Den ____ Scouts please stand.
(To the Scouts) Tonight you make a very important transition on your
Scouting Trail to that of 2nd Year Webelos. This part of your Scouting
experience will involve you more in outdoor activities and participation with
the boys of Scout troops. You will soon begin your growth as Boy Scouts like
the many Scouts have done before you. But, before that time you now assume
an important responsibility to our Pack - that, of our senior Scouts. You
are the ones the younger Scouts will be watching and listening to very
closely. It is your actions and deeds these young Scouts will model. This
will mean that knowing the word to the Scout Law and Promise will not
suffice. You must now learn the true meaning of those words and live by them
as you have already promised - On My Honor.
(To the Audience) Please join me in giving these youngsters a "round of
applause" as the begin this their final journey in Cub Scouts.
