2 different recognitions that I used were:
Make up some luggage tags. I had access to a laminator. On one side I had
the leaders name address and phone number. On the other side I had the pack
number and the cub scout logo. I printed up the text on the computer and
used the stickers from the scout store (this was pre-clipart for me). You
can get luggage tags at an office supply store like Staples.
The other thing that I did was to take a piece of pine shelving and cut it
to the side of an 8 X 10 picture and routed the sides to make a smooth
border. I then made up certificates saying thanks to the leaders, slightly
burned the edges, and then used clear lacquer to attach and coat the
certificate to the wood. I also notched the back for easy hanging.
I think it is great that you do this recognition.

A couple years ago, as a young, inexperienced Cubmaster, I declared a new
"tradition" for the Pack was for the Cubmaster to hand-craft the recognition
awards for the adult leaders at the annual Blue and Gold Banquet. Little did
I know, that there would be an expectation for each year's project to out-do
the previous year's (my expectation, if noone else's). Well I started out
the first year with name-badges made from bias-cut cherry wood. The second
year I produced blue and gold Dreamcatchers. Now I come to my dilemma ...
what am I going to do this year, my third and final year as Cubmaster. Does
anyone out there have any ideas for hand-crafted recognitions I could make?
I would appreciate any suggestions.
